Summer Red Birds Clinic

Hello! My name is Brandon Arnold, I want you to know about a great opportunity for your child to be involved in this coming summer. The Chanhassen Red Birds, which is the local amateur baseball team is putting on a 3-Day Youth Baseball Camp. This camp will be spearheaded by a couple current Red Bird players.

Lead Instructors:

1) Brandon Arnold- I am a 2012 graduate of Chanhassen High School where I was heavily involved in athletics and the community. After graduating I went to Saint Cloud State where I played college baseball for 4 years. I was a 3 year starter as an outfielder. My senior year I was named to the All-Conference team as well as an All-Central Region team. I graduated in December of 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education. Currently I am a private hitting instructor, Starters Baseball Academy coach, and a Varsity High School baseball coach.

2) Zach Hoffmann- 2011 graduate of New Ulm High School. Zach went on to play college baseball at Saint Cloud State where he was a 4 year starter at DH and First Base. Zach was named to the All-Conference team as well as the All-Region team his Senior year. Zach graduate in the spring of 2016 with a Sports and Marketing degree. He currently is a fielding and hitting instructor.

In the next few weeks you will be receiving a registration form to sign up for the camp. The camp as I said is over a 3 day span, starting Monday June 19th, and finishing up on Wednesday June 21st. There are two time slots to sign up for, 8:30am start time or a noon start time depending on the age of your child(s).
