Fox Chapel softball hosting clinics

| Friday, October 28, 2016 9:18 p.m

Lisa Hess took over as coach of the Fox Chapel softball team last year and hopes to generate some interest in younger players for upcoming seasons.

“One of my biggest initiatives this off-season is to train our school district’s young talent and to get them involved in the program early,” she said. “We are promoting a positive championship culture and are getting our high school team involved with this, as well.”

A pitching and hitting clinic was held in September and recently there was a defensive fundamentals clinic.

Throughout the fall and winter, clinics are scheduled on six Saturdays with two-hour instructional workouts for 7-to 13-year old players.

“Last year was a ‘get my feet wet’ kind of year and this year it will be full steam ahead,” she said. “So far, the clinics have been well-attended, and we anticipate that the attendance will continue to grow as word gets out.”

Clinics will be Saturday, Dec. 17, Jan. 14, Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11. They will be held at the Fox Chapel High School auxiliary gym from 1-3 p.m.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
