Skill Camp Opportunities Include:
Beginning Hitting: Recommended for 6U and first time 8U to learn strike zone, batting stance, appropriate form, base running
Beginning Fielding: Recommended for 6U and first time 8U to introduce the different fielding positions, where to throw the ball, "softball ready!" form, how to get an "out"
Beginning Pitching: Recommended for all first time pitchers who want to learn the basics of the form from holding the ball, stance on the mound, and motions of the pitch to practice at home (must bring a catcher - mom/dad/brother/sister/etc.)
Intermediate Hitting: Recommended for advanced 8U on up; hitting off kid pitch, continue to work on hitting form and drills, base running and stealing, bunting, and sliding!
Intermediate Fielding: Recommended advanced 8U on up; for those who want to learn more about specific positions (first base, second base, short stop, third base, pitching, outfield) and the unique requirements for each so they're ready to play in a game!
Intermediate Pitching: Recommended for those who have pitched before to work on speed, form, and additional drills for a more efficient pitch (must bring a catcher - mom/dad/brother/sister/etc.)
Catching: We are working on launching our first camps specific to those who want to learn how to be a catcher! As such a critical position for softball, we want to ensure we're training girls on proper position, framing the ball, how to block with their gear, and throwing down to 2nd base
Advanced fielding and hitting: Working on providing a session where advanced 10U, 13U and above can scrimmage and work through situations with coaches in older programs
