This camp develops the players’ fundamental skills for the game of softball. Lectures, drill work and games help the player in the individual development of throwing, catching, batting, pitching, base running and game strategy. The ultimate goal of this camp is to have fun while playing the game of fast-pitch softball. 

Note: you must bring your own glove, gym shoes, catching gear, helmet and pants. You may also bring a bat with which you are comfortable.
