The Blue Jays Baseball Academy host one day, four-hour Instructional Clinics throughout Ontario for beginner baseball players aged 8-12.
Players rotate through drills that cover skills including: infield, outfield, hitting, throwing, agility, and baserunning. Instructional Clinic registrants will also participate in a Baseball Athletic Training station which serves as an introduction to fundamental athletic movement.
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.
Participants receive a Blue Jays hat, t-shirt and digital baseball skills manual.
Instructional Clinics serve as a fundraising opportunity for the host baseball association or little league, as $1,000 is donated back to the host organization for hosting a clinic. If registration exceeds 100 participants, host associations receive an additional $500.
$65.00 (plus HST) per participant.

All registered participants receive a confirmation email after registering for a clinic. An information email about the clinic is 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 climate that day. A couple bats and helmets will be available for folks who do not own those items.
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, with the exception of a participant who is feeling ill.
