2020 Winter Hitting & Defense Clinics
The Spartan winter hitting and defense clinic will focus on fine-tuning and improving upon players softball skills. All players will have the opportunity to work alongside the UNCG coaching staff and current student-athletes for both individual and group instruction.
The defensive portion will cover specific fundamentals and drills relating to correct throwing mechanics, glove work, footwork, and game strategy. The in-depth and advanced training will provide the players with key components to becoming the best defensive player they can be. Pitching and catching will also be covered in this clinic for players to increase skill and knowledge of their position. Pitchers and catchers will focus on learning their role in the “battery.” Pitchers will learn techniques and drills that focus on maximum velocity, movement on pitches, and situational pitching. Catchers will learn advanced techniques on blocking, framing, throwing, situational decisions, etc.
Instruction and drills for each position will be taking place at the same time, so those that play multiple positions will need to choose a position they want to participate the most in during the session.
The Spartan hitting session of camp is designed to improve players’ offensive game with the focus on proper and efficient mental preparation, effective mechanics, timing, and pitch recognition. Hitters will participate in drills that demonstrate fundamental techniques and are key components of an elite hitter. Video analysis and review will be used to help players see the proper technique and positioning throughout the swing. This clinic will mentally and physically prepare you for the upcoming season!
