Skills Development Focus of the Camp

Hitting

Practices rarely leave enough time for hitting. But this camp has plenty as a focus of the camp. With three instructor stations in two gyms your player will get plenty of time to develop their hitting skills.

Defense

Defensive training will focus on footwork, glove work and positional play. These are skills that your player can bring back to their own team practices. This advanced training will be an excellent supplement to their existing team practices.

Catching

Specialized position training like catching is hard to find. This camp will have a dedicated catching instructor to help the players add a solid foundation of catching technique to their game.

Camp Philosopy

This camp provides families with local options for improving their softball players performance on the field. The camp delivers training in areas of demand locally. The camp's goal is to raise the level of play locally by providing quality instruction to players of all ages and skill levels.

We also invite a number of current and future coaches to join us to learn new techniques under our qualified instructors. This is so they can bring share these skills with their entire team during regular practices.

Lastly, we believe that building strong local softball teams requires a focus on youth. So we have a mini-camp for girls and boys prior to the competitive camp. We teach them fundamental skills but also a love of the game to get them started on the right path in the sport.

To the right you can see how we plan to allocate the training time for this camp. Based on a total of 45 hours at the softball skills camp you can expect your player to receive this mix of training.
