On January 26-27, several special clinics will be coming to Green Ridge Recreation Center, as part of the Little League “Road Show.” This is a unique opportunity for officials, board members, coaches and umpires to learn from the nation’s experts in Little League baseball. Registration is required in advance. There will be two clinics: 1) for League administrative personnel, and 2) for umpires and coaches who would like to have a better understanding of the rules.
The Road Show clinic, supported in part by Chartis Insurance, revolves around the presentation of “A Year in the Life of Hometown Little League,” in which the workings of a fictional league are followed throughout an entire year. This format provides local league administrators an opportunity to review the latest information on Little League rules, equipment, and programs, while creating a forum to interact with Little League staff members. Umpire training will give a better understanding of baseball and softball rules, emphasize on-field and plate mechanics, positioning on field, etc. This training will be similar to the training provided at the Southeastern Region Headquarters in Warner-Robbins, GA and International Headquarters in Williamsport, PA – without the long travel.
Little Leagues in Virginia (and surrounding States) should consider this unique opportunity to have your Board Members, Umpires, and other interested individuals attend this training event.
