2018 WINTER CLINICS WITH COACH CHIASSON

 

Coach Chiasson is accepting registrations for a series of 5-week hitting/fielding/throwing clinics starting in January 2018 thru the Spring.

Chiasson played College Baseball at Lowell University from 1979-1982, being named captain in 1982. Along with teammates Mike Bryant (father of NL MVP and World Series champion Kris Bryant and 1987 gold glove winner/10 year major league player Mike Lavalliere,), Chiasson batted .444 in 82’, winning the NE Div II batting title.

 

 Players will be taught all aspects of the game (hitting/throwing/fielding)

All clinics will include:

-      Use of weighted balls to increase bat speed/power, (swing thru the ball)

-      Mini baseballs for hitting (hand/eye coordination, less strikeouts)

-      Use of “soft hands gloves”, to help using both hands when catching

-      Ladder drills (to improve footwork and balance)

 

Each clinic will be limited to 5 players, (more reps)   

The cost of the 5-week clinic is $125. Below is a full list of clinics, along with my contact info. If anyone would like to put your own clinic together with times other than below, please let me know and we can work out the details. If you sign up for more than 1 clinic, you will be discounted $15 per additional clinic.

 

        GIFT CERTICATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR ANY CLINICS or ONE-on-ONE LESSONS
