Dave Weaver of New England Catching Camp, LLC will be conducting a Catchers Clinic from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Greeley Field. The role of a catcher in baseball has become increasingly difficult to play and very difficult for coaches to teach. Hudson Youth Baseball has a unique opportunity to have one of the area’s most respected teachers of this critical position come and teach our players how to improve their game behind the plate. More importantly, this is an opportunity for the Hudson Youth Baseball coaches to become more proficient at teaching this important position. Dave Weaver has been working with catchers for the past 14 years. He founded The New England Catching Camp when he recognized that instruction for the toughest position on the diamond was generally unavailable to players committed to playing the catcher position. Dave has worked with over 300 catchers in the past 12 months, both male and female, from all over the United States. He has been coaching athletes in a variety of scholastic sports for over 30 years, and has coached catchers that range from youth catchers to NCAA Div-1 starting catchers. The clinic is free for all players (5-12) who have a desire to learn the catcher position. Coaches at every level are also strongly encouraged to participate.
