BROOKLYN, NY, July 15, 2014 – Healthfirst is sponsoring the second annual Brooklyn Cyclones youth baseball clinic series at MCU Park – 1904 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11224. The series launches with the first clinic scheduled on Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 8:00am -11:00am.
Each clinic will offer 25 children ages 7- 14 the unique opportunity to meet and interact with Brooklyn Cyclones coaches and active players to learn baseball fundamentals. During the 45-minute long clinics, attendees will participate in 10-minute drills consisting of fielding, hitting, pitching and additional baseball tactics, followed by a 5-minute cool down. Clinics are free of charge. Participants are selected from Healthfirst partner community-based organizations in Brooklyn.
“We are proud to partner with the Brooklyn Cyclones for a second year to offer Brooklyn youth the opportunity to learn baseball techniques from professional players and coaches while instilling the importance of physical activity,” said George Hulse, Healthfirst Vice President of External Affairs. “Healthfirst is committed to providing resources for our communities to encourage leading a healthy lifestyle at an early age and staying fit for life.”
Additional youth clinics will be held on Wednesday, August 13 (Fantasy Camp open to teenagers ages 14-21) and Sunday, August 24. Healthfirst is also sponsoring Angels in the Outfield night on Wednesday, August 27 at 7:00pm.
