OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss softball team is taking applications for its 2012 summer camps. Head coach Windy Thees and the Rebels will hold three camps in the month of June for ages 10-18. Registration is available on-line by going to OleMissSports.com/camps.
The Rebels will host a skills camp June 10-14. The camp will cover all aspects of the game, including pitching, hitting and defense with emphasis on the fundamentals of the game. The cost of the four-day camp is $410 for commuters and $495 for overnight campers. The June 18-20 camp will focus on hitting with instruction in base running, bunting and slapping. The camp is commuter only with a cost of $295. A pitcher/catcher clinic will also be held June 18-20 and will include pitching drills to help increase speed, consistency and movement and catching drills to improve game skill from blocking to lowering throwing time. The cost of that camp is $295 and is commuter only.
All camps will be divided by age and skill level to provide the appropriate learning environment and campers must bring their own softball equipment including a bat, glove, cleats and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete. Catchers must bring their own gear. All camp activities will take place at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, which features an air-conditioned indoor hitting facility and locker room.
