GRADES 7-12 | Buckeye Field | 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The Ohio State Softball team proudly announces their Fall Elite Softball Camp. This camp will provide a full day of fun and softball. Half of the day will be devoted to instruction, drills and advanced skills, while the second half of the day will be used to apply these skills in game situations, along with a campus tour. It is a great format to challenge yourself, learn new fundamentals and skills, then have an immediate opportunity to display them in pressure moments.
Camp will have a maximum of 72 total campers, but no more than 12 pitchers and 12 catchers, so make sure you register early. Camp is open to any and all entering grades 7 – 12 in the Fall of 2018. Experience playing competitive softball for 1-2 years is recommended but not required (e.g travel ball, high school softball). Campers will be split into teams of middle school advanced and high school advanced. There will be pitching instruction in the morning. Pitchers will need to supply their own catcher (one not attending camp) for that instruction time.
Registration: 8:15 AM – 8:45 AM
Camp/Drills/Lunch: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Lunch (not provided; on own in a rotation)
