Softball Camps Still Accepting Applications
June 3, 2014
FRESNO, Calif. - Area youth softball players are invited to take their game to a new level with Bulldog players and coaches this summer at a pair of Fresno State Softball Camps.
Player should sign up soon for the Bulldog All-Skills Camp which is less than two weeks away. The two-day camp on Monday-Tuesday, June 16-17 is for players 8-12 years old and will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. both days.
This camp will cover all necessary skills needed for a solid foundation, including throwing, infield, outfield, base running and hitting (I deleted a couple things here that won't be included in the camp). This camp will help players hone up on fundamentals and be exposed to some advanced skills.
Softball players can also sign up for the Bulldog Advanced/College ID Camp scheduled for August 30-31. Players ages 7th grade and up are invited to participate in the two-day camp that runs from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Sunday.
This camp will help serious softball players take their game to the next level. The focus will touch on fundamentals, but will mostly explore advanced skills including positional play, sliding, diving and situational hitting.
Practice sessions will be similar to the Bulldog Softball team's, and players can show off their skills at scrimmages. The camp's objective is to evaluate the skill level of each player and give helpful guidance for improvement.
Both camps sport a 1:10 counselor/coach to camper ratio and free camp T-shirt for each camper.
Each camp will be held at one of the nation's most famous softball venues - Margie Wright Diamond on the Fresno State campus.
Campers can register now for each camp and get more information at the http://www.fresnosoftball.com website
The Fresno State softball team comes off a memorable season in 2014 under second-year head coach Trisha Ford and assistant coaches Sara Pickering and Carly Wynn. The `Dogs (31-21, 15-9) matched their preseason conference polling with a second-place finish in the MW, one game behind San Diego State.
Individually, the team led the conference in All-MW honorees (5) and also sported two All-Region selections.
