Since the program’s inception, more than 800,000 youth have participated in a Twins youth clinic.The clinics are designed to teach fundamentals, including hitting, throwing and defense in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. They provide instruction for boys and girls ages 6-13. Play Ball! Minnesota provides all the necessary equipment for the clinic. Participants are asked to bring their own gloves. Registration is required to participate in a clinic by calling Chad Hesla 605-881-0007.

Play Ball! Minnesota staff will have blank waiver forms with them in case participants register the day of the clinic. The staff will have clinic wristbands. Participants need to wear their wristbands once their waiver is submitted or their name is crossed off the advanced registration list. These wristbands are so staff knows who is eligible to participate in the clinic.
