West Ottawa Varsity Softball Program To Offer Free Softball Clinic

West Ottawa Varsity Softball Coaches and players would like to invite you to FREE softball clinic on Thursday, May 28, from 4:30pm-6pm at the Varsity Softball field located on the high school campus.  Coach Michele Mathews, her staff, and her players want to take the opportunity to work with as many of our players as possible as well as highlight some of the upcoming games and clinic options in the near future.  We are excited to, once again, have this incredible option to work with the West Ottawa softball program.  There is no registration fee or form to fill out.  We simply want you to just show up, have some fun, and continue to learn more about how to play this great game.  We would also encourage you to wear your uniform for this clinic.  Hopefully we can have a lot of participants for this clinic!  Thank you to the West Ottawa Softball program for this awesome invitation!
