FORT MYERS, Fla. – Coming off a 2013 season that included a 36-18 record while finishing in third place in the Atlantic Sun  during the regular season, FGCU softball head coach David Deiros and assistant coach Alycia Bachkora have opened registration for their 2013 FGCU summer softball camp.

Along with coaches Deiros and Bachkora, FGCU softball players will be part of the camp staff. Aspects of the camp will include advanced hitting, defensive and pitching sessions for those ages 13 and older. The camp will begin on Monday, June 24 and will conclude on Wednesday, June 26 with the different camp aspects having staggered dates.

Hitting camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball player the correct mechanics and mental approach necessary to be a successful batter, slapper, bunter, and base runner. This clinic is designed for the advanced hitter who will be evaluated using a variety of techniques. We will incorporate hitting drills designed to accelerate skill levels. 

Defensive camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball player the necessary fundamentals to become a solid reliable defender. Campers will develop proper mechanics in throwing, receiving, and fielding. Advanced individual work at a player’s specific position (including Catcher) will be incorporated with the skills utilized at these positions

Pitching camp objectives include teaching the experienced softball pitcher the fundamentals required to throw a pitch correctly, with the spin and velocity as on target as possible. Will work on locating all pitches as well as finding the pitch each player throws best. Catcher not required.
