Big names coming to Concord softball clinic

Several noteworthy instructors will be on hand for an elite softball clinic hosted by the East Bay Vipers on Sept. 10 and 11.
The impressive group of instructors is headlined by Ashley Charters, an NCAA champion while at Washington, and Team Canada member Jenn Salling, who also played at Washington. Others include University of Pacific All-American Gina Carbonatto, Pacific pitching coach Jessica Hancock and personal trainer Ron Cervellin.
The clinic will be broken up into two parts. There will be a six-hour clinic on both days from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. where players will be instructed on various skills as they shuttle from station to station. A separate clinic from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. will help players who want to focus on specific skills. Players can choose between hitting/bunting, infield, outfield, catching and pitching.
The clinic is for players ages 12 and up and will be held at Willow Pass Park in Concord. Players must register before Sept. 3. Cost is $200 for the 6-hour clinic and $100 for the specific skills clinic.
