WVU Tech softball coach Amber Affholter has announced plans to hold a fastpitch softball two-day clinic Jan. 18-19 in the Baisi Athletic Center. The camp is open to beginners as well as advanced players.
Players will learn the fundamentals of the offensive game of softball with focus on hitting, bunting and slapping, as well as learn fundamentals and advanced skills specific to batting. Attendees will also be taught proper fielding and throwing techniques while participating in drill/station work. Those attending the pitching and catching session will learn fundamentals of their position such as spins, arm circles, blocking and bunt coverage. Individualized instruction is given to players according to their skill level.
In order to maintain small teaching groups and to control the quality of teaching, enrollment will be limited and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All registration materials and payment in full must be received by Jan. 11.
Sign-ups at the door will be accepted if space is available.
Attendees 12 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the entire clinic.
The cost of camp is $40 per skill session (both days) or $70 for one skill session (both days). There will be a pitching and catching session, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, and a hitting and fielding session, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.
To obtain a registration form or for further questions, contact Affholter by phone at 304-981-6256 or 734-620-2464.
Coaches at the college, high school, junior varsity, junior high and recreational league (adult or youth) levels are urged to submit game results and updated statistics to The Fayette Tribune and The Montgomery Herald.
When turning in scores or statistics, coaches/statisticians are reminded to provide at least last names of participants; information will not be accepted with only the first name.
If they haven’t been, winter rosters and schedules should be submitted when they’re available.
