Summer baseball camp opportunities being offered through your local parks district

As the Little League season winds down, youth baseball players, thanks to your local park district, have two more opportunities to learn new skills to help them succeed on the diamond.

The Baseball Jazz Clinic will be held at Si View Park in North Bend. Families can choose from either of two weekly camps coming up over summer break. The clinics will be held July 10-13 and August 14-17 in the mornings from 9am-12 noon each day. The camps, which are geared for players ages 9-14, will help them improve their overall baseball skills as they get set for fall ball or offseason workouts in advance of the 2018 youth baseball season. All aspects of the sport will be discussed and taught over the four days, including fundamentals of hitting, pitching, fielding and throwing. Si View Metro Parks is once again hosting these sessions.

Steve Goucher, who has been providing instruction at these camps for the past several years, will once again instruct these two camps. Goucher is a Bellevue-based coach who has coached at the high school and college levels, and is a former scout for Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves.

Each of the camps cost $129 per player for the entire four days. Parents interested in signing up can do so either by going to the Si View Metro Parks link in our news links, or by calling Aaron Colby at Si View Metro Parks, (425) 831-1900. If you would like more information, either of these methods also can get you that as well.

Goucher will also be available to work with campers one-on-one as well. These 30-minute extra sessions will allow more individualized instruction designed to address specific issues that your child may need to work on in order to be their very best on the field. These sessions cost $35 per day, and he will be available from 12:15-1:45 in the afternoons each day following that day’s camp session. Again, those are July 10-13 and August 14-17, and will also be at Si View Park.

Consult the Si View Metro Parks website, mentioned above, for more information on these private lessons.
