Softball Announces Summer Camp Dates
May 21, 2012
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The East Carolina softball program will host three skills camps this summer, according to an announcement by the team Monday. Each session will be conducted inside the ECU Softball Stadium and feature instruction provided by the Pirate coaching staff as well as selected current and former players.
The first camp is scheduled for July 17-19 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and is designed for players entering, or already in, high school. The All Skills Camp will focus on fine tuning and advancing the skills of the game - hitting, defense, base running, strategy and more.
From July 24-26, the Pint Size Pirate Camp (9:00 - 11:00 a.m.) and Intermediate Camp (1:00 - 5:00 p.m.) will take place. The morning session is available for children between the ages of five and eight. No previous softball experience is required. The camp is designed to introduce basic softball skills and improve the fundamentals of throwing, receiving, hitting and footwork. In the afternoon, players age nine through those entering eighth grade will be introduced to more advanced drill work for offense, defense and base running.
Leading the events will be head coach Tracey Kee and associate head coach Natalie Kozlowski. The pair has received the last two National Fastpitch Coaches Association Mideast Region Coaches-of-the-Year honors.
Individuals interested in participating should fill out the attached form and return it to the softball office prior to July 11. For more information, please contact Kozlowski either by phone at (252) 737-1434 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
