The Saint David’s baseball coaches attended the Ripken Baseball Coaches Clinic at Hofstra University on Saturday, February 25th. The clinic was given by former major league baseball players Bill Ripken, John Habyan, and Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr.
Saint David's coaches spent six hours in the clinic, introducing Coaches Learn, Imbelli, Roman, Arias, and Byrnes to baseball the Ripken Way: Keep it Simple, Make it Fun, Celebrate the Individual, and Explain the Why.
The coaches, who enjoyed their time at the clinic commented that, "Cal, Bill and John covered every aspect of the game, moving through the fundamentals required for success to the advanced drills that can give our players an edge."
Drills the coaches learned at the clinic have already been incorporated into the baseball curriculum and will benefit our players and their coaches throughout the season.

Our program rigorously pursues skill and sportsmanship, because our coaches rigorously pursue exceptional coaching practice.
