How many of these clinics are done per year? Wondering if Michigan is on the list in the near future?

So far, the best of the many things from the clinic that is helping me is focusing on the follow-through.

When speaking about the fundamentals, the pros emphasized it.

When they watched everyone throwing, it was about the most common comment they gave.

I think focusing on the follow-though has helped me improve my weight transfer, but even more important, it has loosened up my swing.

In striving to improve, I keep trying to incorporate what I read and see. Many times, I get too focused on positions and technique, which leads to muscle tension. Focusing on the follow-through is helping me to reduce the tension so I am more natural/athletic with my throws.

Going forward, I think it might be most helpful to do most of the technique type work in slow motion, and just focus on the follow-though when throwing.

I am curious what anyone else took from the clinic.

I could not agree with this more. The general thing I was wanting to improve was accuracy and while they didn't specifically address that, I've found just practicing standstill shots in the yard that when I remember to follow through the accuracy just happens. It's been really eye opening. But I have yet to get in a round since, which is really bugging me.
