Hitting, Infield, Outfield, and Speed & Agility
|Add Pitching Session||$55.00||Details||Special 1 hour session! Must have at least 1-year of experience pitching for a team.|
During the pitching session, the pitching coach will bring college-level fundamental drills to improve accuracy, speed, and movement. Each drill will be something that they can take home that will help improve overall strength on the mound.
Camp structure: the coach will bring the group together, teach a drill, and send the girls back out to work on it with their catchers while the coach walks through to observe the form of each athlete to make sure they are successfully completing the drill. Then they will bring the group back together for the next drill. This is not a private lesson, but it is a chance to learn specific drills to take home and improve as a pitcher.
Note: Each Pitcher MUST provide someone to catch for them. Can be a parent or friend or teammate NOT in the Catching Session.
|Add Catching Session||$55.00||Details||Special 1-hour Catching session. Must have at least 1-year of experience catching for a team.|
Catching is a completely separate camp in which catchers will be given small-group instruction. They will focus on the best way to receive the ball and frame to get the highest level of calls. Strength, Speed, and accuracy are what a catcher needs to play elite softball. Coaches will emphasize footwork, blocking, and how to increase speed transition in throwing the ball. Catchers are instrumental in controlling the flow of the game. There is no doubt that this is a special position and our elite drills will enhance the way the athlete looks at the game.
Note: Catchers Equipment is Required! Those enrolled in the Catchers Session CAN NOT catch someone in the pitching session!
