All Skills Program
The daily program will emphasis drills to improve individual skill of throwing, fielding, and catching. Players will learn the correct sequence of hitting mechanics, and the importance of balance and rhythm during their swing.  Player will be taught how to maximize the power in their swing with correct weight transfer and hand path to the ball. The short game skills will be introduced as well during the offensive portion of the clinic.  In addition, the fundamentals of each position (double plays, covering bases, cutoffs etc.) and defensive and offensive strategies will be covered.   This program includes base running, sliding, diving, and selecting the proper equipment for the individual position and live game situations.  


Pitchers & Catchers Program Each day the pitchers and catchers will spend the first half of the clinic working on specific skills for their position. Pitchers will learn the correct fundamentals of windmill pitching including: how to grip and snap the 2 and 4 seam fastball, drills to improve arm circle speed and mechanics, drills to improve balance and explosion in the pitching motion.  The goal of clinic is to improve accuracy and speed. The beginning pitchers will work on Change-ups and the advance pitchers will work on spins for various pitches.  All pitchers will work on fielding position, and how to set batters up. All pitcher speeds will be checked via radar gun and spin rotation via the Rev Fire.  The catcher skill work will include learning the proper stances, framing, throwing techniques, blocking, pick off plays, fielding bunts, passed balls and how to call a game.

Thank you Parents, Coaches, and Players!

Parents, Coaches, and Players of the SGSL,


I want to thank you for all of your support for our field setup day this past Saturday, March 12th.  We had a great turnout and got a lot of work done at the park.  The weather was beautiful and it was a great day.  There were too many volunteers to thank individually (a testament to the turnout) but I wanted to share a few of the projects that were accomplished:

- Batting cage setup

- Overall field grooming and cleanup

- Signs and new backstop blockers put up

- Meeting room painted

- Picnic tables painted

- Over 200 feet of drainage added to several fields!

The park has never looked better.  I am proud to be the President of this league and to be a part of this community.  Thank you all for your hard work and I am looking forward to a great 2016 SGSL season!

Watch for pictures to be posted soon from this great day!


Jim St.John
