This advanced level softball hitting clinic will be led by the Frostburg State University coaching staff.

There will be NO walk-up registrations accepted. Be sure to register early!
The Frostburg coaching staff has substantial experience training athletes and an interest in the application of advanced concepts including biomechanics, functional anatomy, motor learning, and motor control. The staff has spent hundreds of hours studying video of elite baseball and softball hitters and applies this knowledge on the field with hitters of all ages and levels. Hitters attending this clinic will be learning the swing that is being taught at the top levels of college softball!
In addition to the unique philosophies and drills that we will be incorporating into this clinic, we will also use provide video analysis and measurements of each player's swing. We will be measuring hand speed, barrel speed, exit velocity, launch angle, and distance.
The schedule will be broken down as follows:
Intro to hitting philosophy
Hitting skill work
Hitting cage work; measurement & analysis
Live hitting off pitchers
In the advanced Pitching session, we will focus on fastballs and change-ups for the first part of of the session. Drills will be geared toward pitching mechanics, speed, and location.
The second part of the session will be devoted to developing other pitches including drop, rise, curve, screw. Pitchers will focus on developing the pitches that best match their level of ability.
The final portion of the camp will focus on drills and exercises specifically geared toward developing overall pitching strength and power.
If pitchers stay for the hitting session, they will also throw live to batters.
At the end of the camp, participants will receive an evaluation sheet with drills to help them maintain what they’ve worked on.
Pitchers do not need to bring a catcher.
In the advanced catching session, we will focus on receiving, footwork, transfers, arm slots, and blocking.
