CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Southern Illinois softball program will hold two summer camps in 2014, head coach Kerri Blaylock announced Tuesday. The hitting and defense camp will take place June 17-18 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Garden Grove Events Center behind the University Mall, and the pitching camp will take place on July 8-9 from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Student Recreation Center.
Students in grades 2-8 are eligible for the hitting and defense camps, and students in grades 1-12 can register for the pitching camp. Cost is $120 for the hitting and defense camp, $100 for the pitching camp or $200 for both camps. The coaching staff for the Salukis will serve as camp instructors for both camps, led by head coach Kerri Blaylock, who has won 543 games in her illustrious 15-year career as the head coach of the Salukis, including three MVC titles and six NCAA tournament appearances.
In the hitting and defense camp, players will receive personalized instruction at their defensive positions utilizing many drills. In addition, campers will be given hitting and bunting instruction and do station work with hitting.
In the pitching camp, campers will be given drill work as well as instruction on throwing specialized pitches. The Salukis softball camps have a one-to-five coach-to-camper ratio, allowing SIU's coaching staff to offer more individualized instruction.
To ensure your spot in the camps, register before May 26, 2014. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, and registrations will be accepted if spots are available until June 13 for the hitting and defense camp and July 13 for the pitching camp.
