In this three-day camp, infielders, outfielders, catchers and pitchers will experience the same drills and instructions used to enable the Furman Paladin softball team to perennially compete at a high level. Working towards the goal of competing at a high level, players will learn fundamentals of the game and will be taught skills that will enable them to improve immediately as a player. Campers will build their softball knowledge to maximize development and performance. Hitting instruction will focus on increasing bat speed and power, while incorporating bunting, situational hitting and strategies for hitting specific pitches and pitch locations. Defensive drills will cover all facets of the game through position specific instruction designed to increase reaction time and improve overall play. On top of getting to play and learn about the game we all love, campers will get to see how beautiful Furman University is. We will walk from the softball field to the dining hall for lunch two out of the three days of camp. This will be a small look at the Furman student-athletes life.

Additional Information:
The Furman coaching staff and Paladin players will be on hand to instruct participants of all skill levels. Emphasis will be placed on the techniques of the game - hitting, bunting, catching, infield and outfield play, base running, pitching, and game competition. Individual skill development will be challenged. It is a great experience to develop as a softball player as well as an athlete.

  • Campers will commute each day.
  • Campers are advised to bring their own water bottles, snacks, equipment, (bat, glove, helmet, etc.).
