By Staff | Apr 8, 2013

Coming off a 2012 season that included a 38-24 record while boasting Atlantic Sun regular season and tournament championships, FGCU softball coach David Deiros and assistant Alycia Bachkora have opened registration for their 2013 FGCU summer softball camp.

FGCU softball players also will be part of the camp staff. Aspects of the camp include advanced hitting, defensive and pitching sessions for those ages 13 and older. The camp begins on Monday, June 24, and concludes on Wednesday, June 26.

Hitting camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball player the correct mechanics and mental approach necessary to be a successful batter, slapper, bunter, and base runner. This clinic is designed for the advanced hitter who will be evaluated using a variety of techniques. We will incorporate hitting drills designed to accelerate skill levels.

Defensive camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball player the necessary fundamentals to become a solid reliable defender. Campers will develop proper mechanics in throwing, receiving, and fielding. Advanced individual work at a player’s specific position (including catcher) is incorporated with the skills utilized at these positions

Pitching camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball pitcher the fundamentals required to throw a pitch correctly, with the spin and velocity as on target as possible. Will work on locating all pitches as well as finding the pitch each player throws best. Catcher not required.
