Nevada softball to offer summer youth camps
RENO, Nev. – The Nevada softball program is set to host its annual summer camps, which is scheduled to begin with its youth session for 14U players from June 12-14. The Wolf Pack will then hold its second set of three-day camps for competitive 18U players from June 19-21.
“We’re really excited to be putting on another great couple of weeks for everyone looking to hone their softball skills,” Nevada head coach Josh Taylor said. “These camps serve as a great learning opportunity for kids of all ages to not only become more talented players but to learn about the ins and outs of the game itself and see what it’s like to play softball at a high level.”
With the first week of camps serving as an instructional session for the youth, campers will learn the most important fundamentals of the game from current members of the Nevada softball team as well as the coaching staff. This camp provides not only one-on-one instruction, but it also consists of a unique way for kids to learn how to slide on the base paths by teaching them the proper sliding methods using a slip-and-slide.
The second week of camps comprises of campers receiving a more in-depth perspective of the game for players looking to sharpen their skills and learn about team concepts that are necessary to compete at the next level. After morning sessions that teach strategy and situational concepts that come with playing softball at the Division I level, campers will then apply the lessons they learn to the real-life scrimmages they compete in.
