Frequently asked Questions
Why Inside? The main reason we decided to move our camp to Premiere is to get out of the rain. There is no way we can reschedule a complete rain out. Also, we have the ability to host more players, bathrooms are closer, we can have tables for snacks, easier access to water, quicker setup and cleanup, more options for defense and hitting stations.
Which camp should I register in? Our Tuesday camp is for Travel girls ages 9-12. Our Thursday camp is for Travel girls ages 12-16. We ask that you be on a travel team to register for camp. You must be on a 14u or a 16u Travel softball team or be known to hit 55mph off machine at HH to register for Thu camp. You must be on a 12u or 10u Travel softball team to register for Tue camp. Well above average 12u players will be considered for Thu 16u camp on a case by case basis.
What is this camp about? This Camp is for the serious player looking to improve their skills and knowledge of the game. The defensive skills portion of the practice will be scripted and focus on specific skills either individual or team. The hitting events will be specific stations moving from one place to another.
