Softball to Host Fall Clinics
Summer clinics postponed to fall
WASHINGTON - The George Washington softball program will host fall clinics on to-be-determined dates, head coach James DeFeo announced. The fall clinics will be held in lieu of the previously scheduled clinics on June 26 and June 27 which have been postponed. Fall dates will be posted in the near future.
Each day will feature sessions focusing on a different facet of the game for campers ages 12-18. Sessions will be geared toward pitching or catching, followed by hitting and slapping, defense and a game simulation showcase to close the day.
A pitching clinic will teach proper mechanics and pitch movement while increasing velocity and working on the mental aspect of the game. Pitchers must bring their own catchers to the session - catchers will not have to pay to attend the pitching clinic.
The catching clinic will include the mechanics of receiving, framing, blocking, transitions, throwing, footwork and pitch calling.
A hitting and slapping clinic will cover all aspects of fundamental mechanics to increase power and bat speed while instilling proper balance and footwork.
The defensive session will be geared toward both infielders and outfielders and include positional breakdowns, mechanics and footwork, glove work, throwing and situational instruction.
The final session of each day will feature a game simulation showcase, where participants will be put on teams to play a game full speed. Spots will be limited for the showcase session.
Check the GW Softball page often for future announcements regarding fall clinics, as space will be limited (camps are open to any and all entrants limited by age, gender and numbers).
