Major Mosquito Goals:  To simplify the delivery mechanics into a sequence that kids and their parents can quickly understand and repeat on their own.  Continue to develop proper throwing mechanics, and locate fastball to both sides of the plate.

Minor Peewee Goals:   Provide repetition until mechanics become repeatable and efficient.  Start the process of learning a change-up and holding runners on first base.
