WINTER CAMP Indoor Instruction: The goal of the Missouri Southern State University Winter Softball Camp is to improve on offensive and pitching skills of participants when the weather does not want to cooperate.
Head Softball Coach, Bill Gray will be the lead instructor of both the hitting and pitching camps. Coach Gray will be assisted by members of the MSSU coaching staff and MSSU players. Hitting instruction will include tips on proper stance, the mechanics of the swing, and short game instruction including bunting and slapping.
Pitching instruction will include proper snaps and body position, practice techniques for each pitch, and game related pitching strategies.
Camp will be held in Young Gymnasium on campus unless we get unseasonably warm weather and it can held on the fields on campus.
Hitting camp will be broken down into basic and advanced instruction. All players will receive instruction on stance and swing mechanics.
Players will also be given instruction on topics from choosing the proper bat to game time adjustments. Players will need to bring batting gloves, bats, and helmets if they choose. Players will be hitting off of tees, soft toss, front toss and pitching machines.
Pitchers will work on the basic skills for each pitch focusing on spin, stride, and body position. Emphasis will be put on the fast ball, drop ball, rise ball and change up.
Pitchers will need their glove, a ball, if they use smaller than 11”, and if possible a catcher. Pitchers without a catcher will throw to each other when working on pitches.
Cost for Hitting Camp is $50. Cost for Pitching Camp is $60. If a player should attend both camps they will receive a $10 discount.
