The Boothbay Region Baseball Association (BRBA) will be conducting a baseball skills clinic on the weekend of Feb. 25-26. The clinic will be held at the Boothbay Region Elementary School Gymnasium. The clinic will run on Saturday  from 10 a.m. to noon and on Sunday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and is open to all boys and girls between the ages of 7 -12 years old throughout  Lincoln County.

The clinic will be conducted by a special guest coach from Southington, Connecticut, Charlie Lembo, who is currently the varsity head coach for the Southington High School Blue Knights as well as head coach for The Southington Shock of the Connecticut Collegiate Baseball League. The Shock have won five CCBL titles in seven years with Coach Lembo.  Coach Lembo has extensive knowledge of the fundamentals of baseball and the ability to convey those fundamentals to a younger crowd.

Please sign up early as the maximum number of participants will be 30 students. Players should bring a baseball glove, wear long pants and shoes appropriate for the gymnasium floor. Any other personal equipment, such as bats, helmets, etc., is welcome. All other gear will be provided.

The BRBA winter skills clinic is a perfect opportunity for kids to re-acquaint themselves with the game of baseball right before both the BRBA and Lincoln Little League get started again in April. It is also  perfect for any boy or girl wanting to try out for a Little League team for their first time . There will be additional information and sign up forms available for both the BRBA league and the Lincoln County Little League at the event.

If you are coming from out of the area, BRES is located at 238 Townsend Ave. Boothbay Harbor. It is the building behind the high school on top of the hill.
