A summer tradition will return to the diamond at Allan Hancock College in June. The Hancock baseball program will host two four-day summer youth clinics at John Osborne Field on the Santa Maria Campus. Children, ages six through 13, are invited to sharpen their hitting, fielding and pitching skills at the camp that will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The first clinic will run from Monday, June 19, through Thursday, June 22. The second will run from June 26-29.
The cost to attend a clinic is $125 per child, and $75 for each additional family member. Children can attend both clinics for $200. Registration is under way.
Instructors include the Allan Hancock College coaching staff and players, as well as former Major League pitcher Bryn Smith and Lompoc High School head coach Jim Allen. Santa Maria Valley Packers head coach and former Righetti head coach Scott Nickason, and Rogers State University assistant coach Skyler Ellis will also provide instruction to campers.
All camp participants will receive a free t-shirt. For more information, call (805) 922-6966, extension 3227. To register online, visit athletics.hancockcollege.edu/camps/baseball_camps_2017.
