Jessica Iwata, an Easton All-American and former University of Hawaii softball standout, will be joined by Stephanie Ricketts, an Easton All-American and NFCA All-American, and Kelly Majam-Elms, an NFCA All-American, in leading an All-American Softball Kauai Clinic.

Sponsored by the County of Kauai Department of Parks and Recreation and Brick Oven Pizza, the free softball clinic will be held on Aug. 2 for youngsters 8 to 12 years old, and on Aug. 3 for girls 13 to 18 years old. A parent recruiting seminar will also be held from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Aug. 3.

All clinics will be held at the Isenberg Park in Lihue with pitching skills running from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and hitting and fielding aspects held between 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

“We are happy that these former UH softball standouts are willing to conduct a clinic, especially Jessica who is coming home to give back to the community,” said Aaron Uyeda, site leader for the parks and recreation department.

A flier states the clinic will help all aspects of a young girl’s softball game from fielding, hitting and pitching with three of the most successful players to play for the University of Hawaii. The clinic is available for players just learning the game to players wanting to play at the next level.

Through the sponsorships, dinner will be provided for the athletes following the clinic on both days.
