The Clinic

CNC clinics are loud. They are challenging. They push you to find the leader inside you. You’re going to leave as a better player than you started. We’re going to go to work on defense, hitting, and softball specific speed/agility training.

Softball skills will be led by Coach Nikki Caicedo, CNC founder, and former collegiate softball player. Speed and Agility training will be led by Nikki, Lead Sports Performance Trainer at the Lab Athletic. Other current high school varsity players and current/former collegiate softball players will be assisting as well.

Defense: fast paced, unique drills to help you build a better player from the ground up. Focused on footwork, quicker transfers, and glove work.

Hitting: Intro to hitting to focus on hand path, use of lower body, power, and follow through.

Speed and Agility: Softball specific sports performance training, agility and speed work.
