Winter Clinics 2023

Program

We are pleased to announce that  Winter Clinics are returning bigger and better than ever for the 2023 season. Having outgrown our original facility, Winter Clinics are moving to the gym at École Secondaire des Sources starting on January 21st. They will run every Saturday for the usual 12 weeks. We have recruited some of Dollard Baseball’s best pitchers, hitters, catchers and fielders to run the program this year, and pass along their knowledge. The cost is $175 for DDO Residents, with an additional $25 for non-Dollard Residents. (Priority will be given to the Dollard registrants.)

Anyone registering for the 11U or 13U groups can participate in weekly pitching clinics at no additional cost and, new for this year, we are emphasizing improving development at the catcher position throughout our association, so catchers are also welcome to stay for weekly catching clinics.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration is capped at 20 players at each level on a first come, first served basis. If you want to ensure your child can participate we encourage you to register right away.

2022 Winter Clinics Are Cancelled

As a consequence of the current worsening COVID-19 situation and the rules now in place, we are forced to cancel the 2022 Winter Clinics. The current shutdown of sports across the province and uncertainty of not knowing how long it will continue has made it impossible for us to properly plan for Winter Clinics this year.

On a good year, a program of this nature requires a lot of advanced set up and planning in order to make sure we are providing a worthwhile experience for our players. This year, given the added obstacles provided by the current surge in cases, and additional contingency plans that would had to have been made in order to safely get through the entirety of the program uninterrupted, we feel it is best for everyone to not hold Winter Clinics in 2022.

We know this will disappoint a lot of players who look forward to this program every year, and we will do our best to ensure that Winter Clinics return in 2023.
