Slugfest Coaches Clinic
What is SlugFest 2018? The mission of SlugFest is to provide the most comprehensive hitting specific coaching clinic in the country. SlugFest is being founded on three ideals: 1.) To connect some of the most respected coaches from the highest levels in the game with youth and amateur coaches while providing the highest quality of hitting content to coaches at all levels. 2.) To provide this information at a low, affordable cost to coaches who coach more out of passion than for money. Our mission is to provide coaches with high-level content that rewards their passion at an affordable price. 3.) To help grow the game of baseball by improving the quality of youth coaching. SlugFest is a coaching clinic organized by coaches, for coaches, and in the spirit of not only teaching our players, but each other as well.
