Youth Baseball Clinics at HITZ Ithaca


HitZ Ithaca, a baseball training facility located in the Ultimate Athletics Facility at the Shops at Ithaca Mall, 40 Catherwood Rd., Ithaca, NY, will offer winter clinics for players aged 8-16 as of April 30, 2019.

Hitz Ithaca will utilize the terrific set of coaches that train players at the facility. Please refer to the Hitz Ithaca website ( for details on coaches. All aspects of baseball fundamentals will be covered during these sessions, with an age-specific emphasis for each group. Training will include hitting instruction with the tremendous capabilities that Hitz Ithaca brings (including pitching machines like Iron Mike, Zooka, EHack Attack, Swing Away MVP Trainers, etc.), fielding mechanics, throwing and receiving, pitching and catching, and conditioning (from a former MLB Strength and Conditioning Coach from the Chicago White Sox). Each session will be designed around the needs of each age group and what they will experience in league play at their levels. Parents, we hope that you find the location convenient, and the instruction received will be from some of the best instructors of the game.
