The program features eight weekly sessions for boys and girls ages 6-17. Anglers players and coaches lead the sessions and are also happy to field questions, sign autographs and pose for photos. Each participant also receives a free Chatham Anglers t- shirt.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for kids of all skill levels to learn the fundamentals of the game in a supportive, fun environment,” said Anglers President Steve West. “Kids can enjoy a week of outdoor activity while rubbing elbows with the best of the best collegiate players. It’s an opportunity that is truly unique to Cape Cod.”
Clinics are sponsored jointly by the Chatham Rotary Club and the Chatham Athletic Association. Campers may register for a single week, or any series of weeks, but not individual days. Sessions start the week of June 19 and continue through the week of July 31. Sessions runs Monday through Friday, with the exception of July 4th (no clinic on the holiday).
