November Pitching Clinics – Register Now!

Registration Now Open!

EABA is excited to announce that it will be running a November pitching clinic focusing on fundamental throwing and pitching mechanics for beginner to AA skill levels.

Sessions will be designed and led by Blake Hamer (EABA Technical Director) with support from other EABA coaches. Players will receive quality repetitions and tailored feedback to ensure they are challenged and given an opportunity to learn to their abilities. This is a great opportunity for players to learn and develop during the off-season.

Youth Groups

Youth under 18 can participate in sports activities without vaccination proof, medical exemptions, or negative tests, BUT they must be symptom free. 
Adult coaches, trainers, volunteers, and spectators must provide proof of vaccination, medical exemptions or negative test results to TTC staff. 
Adults associated with youth groups can provide this information at the first practice and keep on hand for all future practices, unless they’re providing a negative test result (which must be within 72 hours of entering the facility, and must check in at the front desk each time). 
Parents who want to watch their children practice are discouraged from doing so, but will be allowed as long as they provide proof of vaccination, a medical exemption or a negative test result. They must also wear a mask for the duration of the practice.
