SOUTH KINGSTOWN- On a beautiful summer day under the bright sun at Old Mountain Field, young girls hustled to field groundballs during the Ocean State Waves summer softball camp.
Last Monday, groups of youth softball players practiced and learned different techniques to improve their skills,which helped them strive to become the next better players in the area.
In comparison to the Waves Menâ€™s Baseball Camp, the NECBL team sponsored a fast pitch softball camp for softball players all-around Southern Rhode Island. The camp is in the middle of its second session this week, and will also host a third starting on July 28. The camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon Monday to Thursday, and players from ages 7 to 14 are coached by former experienced softball players and coaches from the Wavesâ€™ softball program.
During the camp, players will have the opportunity to work on nearly every facet of their game, including: hitting, pitching, and fielding. This is a great position for players to focus closely on softball improvement by working under the supervision of talented instructors.
Coaches place high emphasis on improving the playersâ€™ overall game. Leader of the camp and former Rhode Island College Softball Coach Maria Morin understands the camp is about much more than physical training.
