More Important Camp Details
The Day Camp is open to ages 9-13 and is open to players of all ability levels.
The Evening Camp is open to ages 14-17 and is geared towards high school players.
Top quality instruction is provided during both sessions by Head Coach Laura Ann Lane and her staff. Activities include skill building drills, small game tactics, lectures, demostrations, and full scrimmages. Training groups are based on ability level after a skill evaluation on the first day. The goal of this program is to create an environment for players to improve their technique, develop a better understanding of the game, increase self-confidence, and make new friends. Campers are trained individually in all of the major fundamental areas of the game: hitting, 1v1 elimination skills, passing, scoring and defensive skills.
