Additional Information This camp is designed with the youth softball player who is developing their fundamental skills in mind. Campers will work on hitting, base-running, throwing, and fielding. The pitching session consists of a pitching talk about grips, strategies, and situations, but NO live pitching will occur to a catcher. Catchers have the chance to work on their position-specific skills, including receiving, framing, blocking, and throw-downs. Offensive and defensive games will be played throughout the camp!
