FORT MYERS, Fla. – The FGCU Softball team will host an all-skills camp for girls age 8-13, July 14-16 at the FGCU Softball Complex. 

The camp will be led by FGCU head coach David Deiros, with assistant coach Alycia Bachkora and members of the 2014 squad assisting with instruction.  No previous softball experience is necessary to attend the camp.

The camp will provide well-rounded instruction of the game with an enjoyable and rewarding experience for each camper. The camper-to-instructor ratio will be kept low in order to provide the best possible instruction and attention to each camper.

The all-skills camp will teach the fundamentals of all aspects of the game: throwing, catching, hitting, slapping, bunting, baserunning, etc.  The camp will develop proper mechanics as well as situational thinking and will work at each player’s specific position.

The cost of the camp is $180 for three hours of instruction for three days.  The registration deadline for camp is July 9th, with a $10 fee for late registration.  A 10 percent discount will apply to any team attending with four or more players and for any siblings attending together. 

For more information on FGCU softball camps, please contact assistant coach Alycia Bachkora at (239) 590-7062 or abachkora@fgcu.edu.
