Kathy Young, Director of Fastpitch Operations and staff will be hosting the 10th Annual Fastpitch Softball College Prospect Camp. This camp is designed to allow High School softball players the opportunity to receive instruction and get evaluated by some of the best college coaches in the game. Players will work in a camp setting in the morning followed by a skills showcase in the afternoon. The showcase portion of the day will be attended by multiple college coaches across the Midwest.
All players will be tested for leg speed, bat speed and arm speed. Each coach will receive a “Prospect” handbook that will include a player profile for each participant. Prospects will showcase their talents by position for a host of college coaches from Division I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA schools. This is not your ordinary exposure camp! We run players through a series of position specific drills, along with a taking a full (60ft.) infield, so that you can showcase the following skills: Arm Strength and Accuracy, Agility and Leg Speed, Lateral Movement, Glove Work, Foot Work, Communication, Peer Interaction, and Concentration.

- Lunch: 11:30am-12:15pm (On your own.)

"I justed wanted to say thanks and tell you how much we appreciated yesterday's camp. With so many camps to choose from, especially in today's economy, I find the annual college exposure you host to be the best fit for my daughter. In addition to that, everybody was friendly and I think the coaches staying until the end speaks volumes! You and your staff actually helping and providing encouragement instead of standing around also does not go un-noticed!
