Softball Clinic Set for Feb. 5 at Rancho Cotate

Thursday, January 27th, 2011 | Posted by

Alicia Hollowell and Amy Chellevold, both of whom had record-setting careers at the University of Arizona, will be at Rancho Cotate High School (Rohnert Park) on Saturday, Feb. 5 for a softball clinic.

The Nor Cal Assault and West Coast Ghosts, ASA Junior Olympic softball organizations based in Sonoma County, have organized the clinic.

There will be three sessions — 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (beginner-grade school), 12:45 to 2:15 (intermediate-junior high) and 2:30 to 4:00 (advanced-high school). Cost is $40 per player.

From 9 to 10:30 a.m. there will be a clinic for coaches. The cost: $20.

Holloway, a native of Suisun, pitched Arizona to the 2006 NCAA championship. She was named the tournament’s most outstanding player following her 5-0 victory over Northwestern in the title game.

Holloway left Arizona as the all-time leader in wins, strikeouts and no-hitters. As a junior, she surpassed Jennie Finch’s school record of 1,028 career strikeouts and pitched eight no-hitters (including three perfect games).

Hollowell was one of 18 players representing the United State on the national softball team. She traveled across the country with Team USA and was in Beijing during the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Chellevold is Arizona’s first four-time all-Pac 10 Conference selection. She played in four NCAA championship games, helping win two of them. When she graduated in 1995, she held 27 Arizona career records and was the nation’s all-time leader in hits (371) and runs (252).

After a five-year coaching career at U of A, she currently serves with the
ASA Softball on the national committee which includes coaching pool and player selection.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    You have advertised a softball clinic at Rancho Cotate High School without filling out any paperwork for use of our facilities. The Rohnert Park Public Safety Department has been notified and will ask you and your campers to leave on February 5th if you have not secured the proper permits and paid the required usage fees.

    Wow Mr. Sarlatte you are a real class act. How about just contacting the the parties that are offering this clinic personally rather than threatening them here in the Press. I cant imagine any organization making these arrangements with such highly acclaimed talent without proper paperwork. How dare you call these organizations that are out to help the young ladies of this community “campers”. You should be ashamed.

    I agree with keepersmom. I understand that there is protocol that needs to occur, but handle with the parties involved before you blast them for all to see. We have three daughters each who play 3 different sports, soccer, basketball and softball. It is a wonderful thing for girls to get the best athletes and coaches to help them get better in their sport. It makes me very sad to see these events get stymied. Please work with the people involved to make sure this happens. It is for the girls and great for the girls.

    • Howard Senzell

      The clubs holding the clinic Feb. 5 on Rancho Cotate’s softball field have recently gotten the proper paperwork. It was an oversight by the softball clubs to not file paperwork with the school before announcing the clinic. It’s for the protection of the clubs, participants and school.
      It’s rare when world-class players come to our area for clinics. I hope the event is well-attended. The weather forecast is great!

  • Three’s a Charm

    Great news. I will be there as a coach and as a parent.

    Who ever made this happen, WONDERFUL CLINIC. Please keep posting for future clinics.
