Baseball Academy | Instructional Clinics

The Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy will be hosting Honda Instructional Clinics throughout Ontario for beginner baseball players aged 8 to 12. These one day, four-hour clinics take place on weekends in May and June.

Honda Instructional Clinics are taught exclusively by Blue Jays Baseball Academy Instructors. Academy Instructors are NCCP registered, experienced coaches, who have been trained in the "Blue Jays Way" of teaching baseball to youth. Many instructors have been with the Blue Jays Baseball Academy for several years, facilitating clinics and camps when they aren't teaching baseball in their own communities.

Players will rotate through drills that cover skills including: hitting, throwing, fielding and base running. Prior to the start, coaches and parents are welcome to join instructors on the field to observe drills, ask instructors questions and enhance learning.

Participants will receive a Blue Jays hat, T-shirt and baseball manual with information to take home and continue to develop their baseball skills.

Honda Instructional Clinics also serve as a fundraising opportunity for the host baseball association or little league, as $25 from each registration is donated back to the host organization after the first 25 registrations. In 2018, the Blue Jays were able to donate more than $25,000 back to amateur baseball in Ontario as a result.

This spring, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy will host two girls-only Honda Instructional Clinics. Please see below for dates and times.

All registered participants will receive a confirmation email after registering for the clinic. An information email about the clinic will be sent out roughly five days prior to the clinic date and will contain details about the clinic including when to arrive, what to bring and if necessary, details on the inclement weather plan. Receipts will be emailed to participants at least two business days after registering.    

 

All participants are asked to bring a baseball glove, bat, helmet, baseball cleats or running shoes, and be dressed in appropriate athletic attire. Please also bring enough water, snacks, and sunscreen based on the weather that day. We ask participants arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the clinic to check in. All clinics run for four hours with one 15 minute break and two shorter breaks. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch, and there are opportunities to volunteer on-field should they choose.

 

Refund Policy

A full refund, less a $10 administration fee, will be granted if registration is cancelled at least 48 hours prior to clinic date. Any cancellations within 48 hours of the clinic will not receive a refund.
