USF Announces Winter Softball Camps
SIOUX FALLS, SD — The Sioux Falls softball team has announced two four-session indoor winter camps. The 2013 Beginner Camp and Advanced Camp will take place each Saturday afternoon in January. The camps will feature instruction from the USF coaching staff and the Cougar softball team. Cost is $30 per session and those who sign up for all four sessions will receive a $10 discount.
JANUARY 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
SESSION 1 – Beginner Camp (7-11 year olds): This is for young batters who really need help with the fundamentals of hitting. Skills that will be learned include: getting into the batter’s box, holding the bat properly and drills to develop a good swing.
SESSION 2 – Advanced Camp (12-18 year olds): Focuses on a more in-depth approach to hitting. Drills will be more advanced and challenging for the athletes. The camp will include film evaluation using the RIGHT VIEW PRO software for each camper to see their swing and how to improve it.
Camps will be held in the Stewart Center on the campus of the University of Sioux Falls. Each session is limited to 25 campers in order to provide the best coach-to-athlete ratio.
Campers are encouraged to attend all four sessions, as the drills will progress with each session in order to give players the best opportunity to improve their habits in all aspects of softball.
University of Sioux Falls Cougar Softball Camps offer an opportunity for players to receive valuable instruction about the fundamental skills of softball. Campers will be made aware of the characteristics that define successful softball players. Organized games between campers will provide a competitive outlet after specific drills have been practiced. Contests built into drills capture the learner’s attention, which results in attentive practice. General courtesy, respect for teammates and opponents and the importance of hard work will be taught to the campers through example by the Cougars coaches and players.
