Twins to host free youth clinics Jan. 18 – Feb. 17
Bringing a hands-on, big league learning experience to children in Southwest Florida, the Minnesota Twins today announced the full schedule for 10 free youth clinics, held at Hammond Stadium and local youth league sites, between January 18 and February 17, 2020.
Presented by Lee Health and the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, the clinics feature Twins instructors and offer youth throughout Southwest Florida’s Twins Territory the opportunity to learn more about baseball and softball. Twins instructors will use drills to teach the fundamentals of throwing, hitting and fielding at each clinic. The Twins are also partnering with the NubAbility® Athletics Foundation to host a clinic for limb different youth on January 31 at Hammond Stadium, while the club will visit the Tri-County Little League Challenger Division® on February 8 for an adaptive clinic for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges.
The 2020 youth clinic schedule wraps up on Monday, February 17, as the Twins will host the annual CenturyLink Sports Complex Open House in conjunction with the club’s first full squad workout. All fans are welcome to this free event that will include the Twins in their first workout of the spring season at Hammond Stadium, along with a health fair, inflatable activities for kids and the free youth clinic.
Each of the 10 free clinics are open to youth of all skill levels, ages 5-13; or, younger children who are accompanied by an adult.
