Home Run Softball Camps
2014 Home Run Softball Camp

The Homerun Softball Camp is designed to provide college bound players with a playing experience that will develop their skills and understanding of college softball. Players will participate in instructional drills, agility workouts, live batting practice, and a general college-recruiting seminar.

The purpose of the instructional clinic is to teach softball skills and techniques. Players will participate in small individual position groups and teams, and will receive individual attention by college coaches. This is a player participation clinic; we are looking for players who are sincerely interested in working to improve their individual softball skills. We teach by having participants physically perform the various techniques so they can develop feel and muscle memory. Players must wear sneakers (no spikes) to protect the indoor playing surface.
