Session 1: Pitching and Catching
In this session, pitchers will continue to develop proper fundamentals to be successful pitchers with Head Coach, Britt Stewart and the current Gustavus pitching staff. We will work on powerline fundamentals as we warm up in our pitching routine. Pitchers will learn new leg drills to help increase power. We will also continue to provide helpful drills and strategies to improve accuracy. Pitchers will have the opportunity to work on different pitches with Gustie pitchers that specialize in certain pitches. We will also discuss the mental game of pitching and different strategies that improve success on the mound.
Session 2: Offense and Defense
Session two will consist of both offense and defensive work. We will teach athletes our hitting progression and philosophy. Then, current Gusties will work with athletes on different hitting drills through stations. We will also discuss our hitting mentalities and work on the mental approach at the plate. Hitters will learn new drills, new approaches, and a new mentality to help them improve their offensive game.
In addition to getting to improve their offensive skills, campers will also have an opportunity to expand their defensive knowledge. We will touch on the fundamentals and work through drills to help each athlete improve their throwing and fielding mechanics both in the outfield and infield. We will also use this time to work on agility and communication on the field. Our hope is that all athletes learn one new thing in this afternoon filled with softball.
Note: Dinner will be provided. Pizzas will be ordered for campers attending Session 2.
