These clinics will be fast paced and full of fun…maybe even more sliding drills! Parents who have an interest in coaching or assistant coaching are encouraged to come and help with the clinic as well; it is a great way to learn some new drills and skills to teach during the season.


INSTRUCTORS: Chris and Chad have coached at various levels including high school and high level club teams of all ages. Chris and Chad began the MN Chaos Club team in 2008.

The catching clinic will be run by Jordan Allar, and each clinic will have a maximum of 6 girls which allows for a more personal lesson.


INSTRUCTOR: Jordan Allar is a senior at Orono High School. She is the current varsity softball catcher and one of the captains of the team.
