Mount Vernon Mavericks coach Rene Belanger demonstrates stretching exercises with a group of FHLL coaches. Belanger has been involved in local baseball — little league to high school varsity and beyond — for decades.
West Potomac Baseball presented a free Coaching Clinic for all Fort Hunt Little League volunteer coaches on Saturday, Nov. 3. The event, held at Fort Hunt Elementary School, was the first of many collaborations envisioned going forward between the two organizations.
“We just appreciate so much all the time and support given by these volunteers to help boys and girls learn and love baseball and wanted to give something back to them,” said West Potomac’s new head coach Jimmy Linza. “And we look forward to doing more of these in the future.”
Besides coaching clinics, there are plans for the FHLL graduates who will be seniors at West Potomac to attend the little league’s opening day ceremonies, one or more Youth Nights at West Potomac, and summer baseball camp for youngsters.
