Session 1: Pitchers

Pitching
In this session, athletes will have the opportunity to work with the Gustavus Head Coach and pitching coach, Britt Stewart and current pitchers on proper fundamentals necessary for success on the mound. We will develop better form through emphasis on the powerline, leg drive, spin, arm circle and timing. Athletes will also learn new drills to help them improve their pitching on a daily basis to start building muscle memory and a pitching routine. This hour and a half will fly by as we learn new drills, mechanics and games to help increase accuracy, power and control.

Session 2: Offense and Defense

Session two will consist of both offense and defensive work. We will teach athletes proper hitting mechanics and drills to help their individual swings. Coaches and current Gustie softball players will work with athletes on different hitting drills through stations with motivation and engagement.

In addition to improving their offensive skills, campers will also have an opportunity to expand their defensive knowledge. We will help develop athlete’s fundamentals 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 morning of fun!
