Learn and play on the same field as Long Island’s hometown team
(Central Islip, N.Y., Feb. 21, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks today announced the dates for their annual youth camps & clinics at Bethpage Ballpark this summer. The clinics are open to children ages seven to 14 of all abilities, and interested parties are encouraged to sign up early due to limited availability. Sign up forms are available by CLICKING HERE or by calling (631) 940-3825 ext. 102.
“This opportunity provides invaluable experience for any young ballplayer,” says Ducks president and general manager Michael Pfaff. “To be on the same field as the back-to-back champions and learn the game from professional ballplayers is a memory that no child will ever forget.”
The first clinic session will take place on Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19 while session two will begin on Friday, August 15 and end on Saturday, August 16. Each camp day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and campers should arrive no later than 8:45 a.m. each day.
Campers receive two days of instruction, lunch each day of the camp, an equipment bag and a Ducks Baseball Clinic jersey. At the conclusion of Day Two, there will be a game played by campers on the field at Bethpage Ballpark. Just bring your glove and a bat and be ready to play, rain or shine!
