George Fox University Nike Softball Camp

Nike Softball Campers will train at the Curtis and Margaret Morse Athletic Field Complex, home to the George Fox University baseball and softball teams. 

Located across from the Wheeler Sports Center on Fulton Street and Villa Road on the northeast corner of the campus, the complex was renovated using a major donation from Curtis and Margaret Morse, avid supporters of Bruin athletics. The Morse family has had a long association with George Fox, with four generations of the family having attended the Newberg school.

All three Morse fields are natural-grass surfaces. The baseball field has temporary bleachers for 250 and a full-scale electronic scoreboard in right field, while the softball field has seating for 100 fans and a small electronic scoreboard on top of the third base dugout.

    She learned so many valuable skills for the future.

    August 07, 2018: It was a fun environment that encouraged meeting new people. The camp had tons of skill development opportunities (tiring, but worth it). The college players have great relationships with each other, and created something I hope my daughter will emulate with current and future teammates.

    My daughter really enjoyed the mix of training and social time

    August 9, 2017: My daughter enjoyed the staff, meeting new friends, and the food. She liked being on a college campus (a beautiful one at that) and having a good mix of training, learning, and free time. The staff made nice accommodations for the excessive heat. I appreciate that the staff/counselors are current GF players- great role models for my daughter.

    I hope to come back every year!

    Great experience learning from college players

    Great opportunity to spend some time on your own at a great facility while pushing yourself to get better at softball with other players of your level and interest. I really appreciated the pitching help from Coach Hollen hearing from someone who actually pitched in college is really neat.

    The hitting and individual position work definitely helped me

    I thought it was great that we all got to know the coaches and understand what they would tell us, the hitting drills and individual position work definitely improved my playing. I hope to be back next year.
