Softball Hosts Youth Clinic

HAMDEN, Conn. - The Quinnipiac University softball team hosted a free clinic for local youth softball players, ages 9-18, on Sunday, Oct. 17 at the Quinnipiac Softball Field.

"Teaching kids the game of softball gives our student-athletes a chance to give back to the game and the community," said Quinnipiac Head Coach Germaine Fairchild. "Through these opportunities, they gain a greater appreciation for how much they know about the game, and how good it feels to pass on their knowledge to a younger generation."

Attendees worked with Quinnipiac softball players and participated in team building, dynamic warm-up games, defensive and offensive fundamental drills, team defense and communication.
