Catching will once again be coached by Langley HS Varsity Baseball Coach and W&M graduate Kevin Healy.  Kevin is a well-known coach and has coached many softball and baseball catchers in the area for years.  His full bio is available on the AGSA website.  Catching sessions will be held on Thursday evenings at GB#1 (Yorktown HS) the sessions are limited to 6 catchers per session - and cost is $115 for 5 sessions plus a make-up session.

Pitching will once again be offered by former college pitchers who will again offer a variety of skill levels commensurate with the experience of the girls.  All Pitching sessions will be held at Arlington Traditional School (ATS) on Sundays.  Sessions are all limited to 8 girls per session and all pitchers must bring their own catchers to each session.  It is expected that all girls who are taking these sessions will also be putting in time away from the sessions to practice.  There are 6 sessions with one make-up date for a cost of $120.
