  • Practical Ball Field Clinic


Instructed by: 

Trevor Warner

Ball field's require regular maintenance to keep them looking good and in a safe condition for public use. This program will teach you how to maintain every aspect of your ball field, from home plate to infield, through practical hands-on experiences. 

Through this workshop you will be learning and practicing:

  • Safety Issues
  • Equipment Required
  • Home Plate Maintenance
  • Mound Maintenance
  • Edge and Lip Maintenance
  • Infield Grooming

This course is hands-on and will be conducted outdoors so proper PPE is mandatory (appropriate outdoor work clothes, steel toed boots, gloves, safety glasses, ear protection etc.).

This course is worth 1 credit towards your Parks Practitioner Designation.
