Summer Softball Day Camps
Our summer day camps will be separated into three camps, each of which will focus on a different aspect of the game. Monday will cover beginning to advanced fundamentals of offense (hitting, short-game, base running). Tuesday will cover defense (throwing, receiving, position-specific play). Wednesday will focus on pitching and catching (pitchers do not need to bring a catcher). All camp instruction by Lobo Head Coach Ty Singleton and his staff and current and former players. Camp structure includes lecture (25%) and participation in softball drills in small groups with instructors. Campers will learn the same skill techniques and drills used by the New Mexico Lobos softball team as they prepare for Mountain West Conference and NCAA D-1 competition. **The Day Skills camps are open to ages 8-21.
This is a highly competitive camp designed for advanced softball players from high school, club and junior college teams who wish to advance to college competition. Camp will feature a skills showcase on Monday, advanced skill instruction on Tuesday and Wednesday morning (including slap hitting, nutrition, pitching, catching, and more), and live team softball game competitions each afternoon and evening.
NOTE: Elite camp is designed to simulate the D-1 college softball experience and does include daily physical conditioning sessions. **The Elite Camp is open to ages 14-21.
