OXFORD, Miss. – As the winter season approaches, the Ole Miss softball team is excited to announce its 2013-14 winter camp schedule. Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees announced Tuesday the Rebels will be hosting six camp sessions over three weekends in December and January where 11-year-olds to high school seniors can get valuable instruction from the Rebels.

Each of the three weekends will feature two separate camps, one three-hour session in the morning and another three-hour camp in the afternoon. The cost of each camp is $160, and the cost to attend both camps for any weekend is $295.

The first weekend of camps, running Dec. 14-15, will feature a pitcher and catcher camp in the morning session, and hitting in the afternoon session.

In the morning session, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the pitching work will focus on spin and form, and how to improve on the basics of pitching, including location, spin, movement, velocity and change in speed. On the other side, catchers will focus on proper set up, framing, footwork to throw downs and blocking.

In the afternoon session, the hitting camp will be comprised of three hours each day of offensive skill instruction provided by the Ole Miss softball staff and players, as well as collegiate coaches from around the region. Skill instructions will include base running, bunting, slapping and hitting.

The second weekend of camps will go from Dec. 21-22 and will focus on speed, slap and bunting in the morning session, and defensive skills and position play in the afternoon camp.

The morning camp, running from 9 a.m. to noon, will focus on the correct footwork, bat path and ball control. Campers will also get instructions on all facets of the short game, including the power slap, soft slap and drag bunt. Athletes will also get to learn drills to improve speed on the base paths and for getting out of the box.

The afternoon session will focus on proper fielding techniques in the infield and outfield. Each athlete will be able to work at multiple positions and learn the fundamentals of all positions. Focus will be on improving glove work, foot work, range and quickness, as well as the proper throw from each position.

The third winter camp will have a defensive skills clinic in the morning Jan. 25-26, and a hitting camp in the afternoon.

Every camper at the defensive skills camp will need to choose two positions to work during the clinic. There will be a one-hour session each day with pitchers working on practice set up and game preparation. Catchers will also have the ability to work on specific catching skills at this session.

In addition to base running, bunting, slapping and hitting instructions, the preseason hitting camp in the afternoon will focus on circuit drills the athletes can use throughout the season to work on proper form, increasing bat speed and increasing power.

Interested campers can register online. For more information, please email Ole Miss assistant coach Julie Meyer at jameyer@olemiss.edu or call (662) 915-7186. All of the camps are open to any and all entrants, and is limited only by age, grade level and/or gender.
