Pitching Clinic: This clinic will break down the pitching motion and present the drills necessary to increase consistency, speed, and effectiveness. Coaches will also introduce different pitches (based on skill level), teaching the correct technique, fundamentals, and drills essential for throwing them.
→ Pitchers must provide their own catchers (ex. parent/sibling).

Catching Clinic: This catching clinic will introduce drills that will sharpen your game behind the plate. Improve your skills in receiving, blocking, throwing, and footwork. Catchers will have the opportunity to catch pitchers at the end of the session allowing you to work on these skills live with a coach present.
→ Catchers must provide their own gear.

Slapping Clinic: Slapping is a great tool to incorporate into your game if you have speed and good hand-eye coordination. When executed correctly, it can be almost impossible to defend. In this clinic we will break down the slap footwork and handwork, as well as introduce different kinds of slaps like the hard/power slap, soft slap, and drag bunt.

All Skills Clinic: Offensive and defensive skills and strategies will be the main focus of the All Skills Clinic. This clinic is ideal for softball players who are ready to develop their abilities to play at the next level. Whether you are beginning your competitive experience or moving up in age for travel ball or high school, this camp will take the basic game fundamentals to a more advanced level.

What To Bring: We recommend all participants wear CLEATS. Participants must provide their own glove; make sure your full name is on your personal equipment. Catchers bring a full set of catching gear. All skills clinic, please bring your own bat and helmet.

Parents & Coaches: Parents and coaches are welcome to observe any and all camp sessions. To insure everybody’s safety, we ask that parents and coaches maintain proper distance from camp activities, and also refrain from interrupting sessions in progress.
