    EYSA Player Development Clinics

    EYSA endeavors to provide a set of home-grown clinics that are available for all EYSA Club players. These clinics are subsidized by EYSA, but most still require extra registration costs in order to cover the costs of fields and clinicians. This page will be constantly updated as new clinics are offered so please check back regularly (or like us/follow us on Facebook or Twitter) to hear about new updates.
