The 2011 College Softball Camp will be held January 8-9, 2011 at the Coquille Sports Complex, just off I-12 in Covington, LA. Covington is located north of New Orleans, in-between Slidell and Hammond, LA. This is an opportunity for high school players from the south to participate in workouts over two days with over 35 college coaches from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama & Texas. Players will rotate through various skills stations being instructed by the camp staff, as well as participate in live scrimmage & game action. Pitchers will work with Sherry Werner PhD, nationally noted biomechanics expert, author and researcher for windmill pitching. Campers will be introduced, instructed, and exposed to the college coach camp staff for 15 hours over the two days. A special FCA devotional led by college coaches will be held early Sunday morning for any campers and parents that would like to attend.
Registration for the two-day camp is $175. Don’t delay as the camp has sold out in its previous three years, and 2011 applications have already exceeded the number received at this time last year by 40%. Last year, 245 young ladies from 15 states attended the camp. You can find detailed information on the camp, lodging, directions, contact info, schedule, camp video, and bio’s of the college coach staff online. Registration forms and a camp flyer can also be printed from the camp website: www.collegesoftballcamp.com
