Please join members of the North Reading Youth Softball Program for our Winter Players Clinics!

This year we are offering two 7-session clinics for you to enjoy. Choose one or choose both!!  We will be holding 7 weeks of pitching and 7 weeks of hitting and fielding.  The Pitching Clinic will cover all of the fundamentals of pitching while emphasizing the drills for proper mechanics.  The Skills Clinic (hitting and fielding) will focus on throwing, fielding, fly balls as well as age appropriate hitting styles (basics, bunting, slapping).  Both sessions will run on different Sundays starting in December and ending in late March and will not conflict with each other so you can sign up for both!

Meet our Instructors

Sarah Curry
Pitching Instructor

Starting at the early age of 6, Sarah played softball with the North Reading Youth Program up until U14.  During those years, she was picked to play for various travel teams until the age of 18.  Sarah then went off to play for the Northeast High School Varsity team as their starting pitcher.  Not just a starting pitcher, Sarah was also versatile in other positions which made her a coach’s dream player.  After Sarah’s high school years, she decided to toss her glove to the side and pick up a scorebook.  She coached her first U8 team and continued that role for a few years.  As an instructor, Sarah provides the top techniques in pitching, fielding, and hitting.  Sarah currently attends Roger Williams University majoring in Public Relations.
