Youth Baseball Clinic Benefitting the J.J. Watt Foundation

Hurricanes Select Youth Baseball Youth Charity Baseball Clinic Coming Up Saturday, Feb. 23rd.

Hurricanes Select Youth Baseball, a non-profit organization in Waukesha, is hosting the Second Annual Hurricanes Select Youth Charity Baseball Clinic on Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 1-5 p.m. at NX Level Sports Performance in Waukesha. Each participant will receive small group instruction in four skill areas including hitting, pitching, fielding and speed and agility. Each skill area will be taught by a local varsity high school baseball coaches including Kyle LeMieux (Waukesha West), Chad Montez (Waukesha West), Marc Montez (Waukesha South) and Warren Smith (Marquette and Oak Creek High School). We also have two professional fitness trainers from NX Level - Nic Hansen and Matt Gifford - who will work with the participants on speed and agility. In addition, the participants will learn tips and techniques for focus and relaxation from Joelle Ottoson, a licensed clinical social worker and therapist. All of our instructors are volunteering their time and talents for this event so that 100% of the proceeds may benefit the J.J. Watt Foundation www.jjwfoundation.org. "The Hurricanes, like the J.J. Watt Foundation, believe in the importance of teaching young athletes the importance of perseverance, respect and pride" said Hurricanes President Jeff Fifield. The goal of the Hurricanes is not only to develop quality baseball players, but good community citizens, one player at a time. The J.J. Watt Foundation, created by Pewaukee, Wisconsin native J.J. Watt was created to provide after school opportunities for children to become involved in athletics so they may learn basic character traits in a safe, supervised environment with their peers. J.J. Watt is a defensive end for the Houston Texans and was named Defensive Player of the Year for the 2012 season. The Clinic is open to children ages 8 – 14 and costs $30. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please visit the Hurricanes website at www.HurricanesSelect.com for more information and to register.
