Softball Announces Winter Clinic
GW elite youth camp set for Feb. 4, 2018
WASHINGTON - George Washington softball has announced plans to host an elite youth clinic on Feb. 4, 2018.
Head Coach James DeFeo and his staff, as well as current GW softball student-athletes, will provide the instruction at GW Softball Field on the Mount Vernon Campus and Lloyd Gymnasium for campers ages 12-18. The day starts at 8:30 a.m. and will be broken into four 90-minute sessions.
The pitching clinic -- limited to the first 24 pitchers and catchers -- will focus on proper mechanics, pitch movement and increasing velocity, as well as the mental aspects of pitching. Pitching participants must bring their own catcher, who will be able to attend the session free of charge. Catchers will learn the proper way to receive, frame and block a pitch, while also training in throwing mechanics, footwork and pitch calling.
The hitting and slapping session is limited to 30 registrants and emphasizes fundamental mechanics, including increasing power, bat speed, proper balance and footwork, and the mental side of hitting.
The defensive session is open to 25 infielders and 25 outfielders interested in working on positional breakdown, proper mechanics and footwork, angles, glove work, throwing and situational instruction.
The day finishes with a game simulation showcase (limited to the first 30 registrants) in which campers will be divided into teams for live action.
The cost for a single session is $75 with discounts for multiple sessions purchased. Space is limited. (Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited by age, gender and numbers.)
To register before Jan. 26, complete the registration form and mail, along with payment, to George Washington University Softball, Attn: James DeFeo, 600 22nd St. NW, Washington D.C., 20052.
After Jan. 26, email assistant coach Hallie Blackney at firstname.lastname@example.org stating which sessions you plan to attend.
For more information, contact DeFeo (email@example.com) or Blackney via email.
