Softball Camps - Fastpitch Softball Camp
A fast pitch softball camp provides girls with the training to prepare them to play ball in college, to travel and meet other softball players from across the country, even reach for Olympic gold or work in a professional softball career.
Whether you are a first-time softball player in need of the basics of pitching and hitting; or you are an elite college-bound athlete preparing for the tough college circuit, A fast pitch softball camp offers instruction for all levels of play - from the short game to the long ball, from mental toughness to conditioning.
Whether you choose a camp affiliated with a collegiate program, or a softball skills camp offered by your community recreation department, the benefits of attending a softball sports camp are plenty.
Learn mental toughness
A wise camp counselor will reinforce the tenet that softball is as much a mental game as a physical game.
You'll receive guidance in clarifying and sharpening the things you can control - your effort, enthusiasm, attitude and emotions; and ways to deal with things you can't control - the umpire, the other team, coaches, fellow teammates, lousy weather!
Learn hitting and pitching and playing skills
Benefit from the advise of experienced coaches and staff; learn strategies for hitting the ball on an inside pitch; playing in extreme heat (relevant in some parts of the country); where to look when you step in the box; how to build arm strength; tips on selecting and breaking in a glove.
With the formation of the National Professional Fastpitch League, even more opportunities exist for women athletes who love the sport and want to pursue a softball-related career.
The popularity of this girls and women's game has increased so dramatically over the years that there are fastpitch and slowpitch softball camps in operation from California to New York, Florida to Maine. Research camp locations online or through a summer camp directory.
