Mara Pro Baseball and Softball Clinics
MARA Members:
 
MARA has entered into a partnership with Noah Hall, baseball professional, to provide professional level training and skill development to MARA athletes.  This offering is geared towards families who are looking to provide training and instruction at a level that has historically not been available at MARA, and have had to seek this type of training at other organizations. 
 
We will be launching this partnership with pre-season clinics for both softball and baseball players ages 9-14.  Each two hour clinic will be in a group setting, yet will offer individual assessment and development planning.  Cost is $50 per athlete per session.  Please see the flyer below for details and registration information.  The registration link will take you to the Noah Hall Baseball website, where you can complete your registration.  Please include the desired day(s) that you plan to attend with your registration in the Notes section of the form.
 
As always, we appreciate your feedback and will continue to provide new offerings to meet your athlete's needs. 
 
Thank you for being part of the MARA family,
 
Dave Ulrich
MARA President - 2017
