What Are Softball Camps?

Published on: Jan 09, 2019

In the beginning, softball camps were for kids looking to spend their summer days outside having fun. Today, softball camps go way beyond youth recreation—they’re for everyone.

Camps are an integral part of the softball world. Whether you’re a kid looking to get started, a mid-level athlete trying to get better, or a high schooler wanting to get noticed by a college coach — there’s a softball camp for you.

Types of Softball Camps

No matter your age or skill level, you can find a softball camp that meets your needs. Types of softball camps include:

  • Youth camp: Introduces kids to softball and gets them excited to play. 
  • Instructional or specialty camp: Focuses on a specific skill or set of fundamental skills such as pitching, catching, hitting or defense.
  • Team camp: While less popular in softball than other sports, team camps are for high school teams to attend together and compete as a unit.
  • Prospect or ID camp: Gives high school aged players an opportunity to get noticed by college coaches and compete for a college scholarship, at a school they’re hoping to play for.

Why Attend a Softball Camp

Softball camps offer a wide range of benefits. Players learn teamwork, gain leadership traits, and become better communicators while improving their overall physical and mental health. Additionally, participants build lasting relationships in a fun and structured environment.

 Beyond those, the softball-specific benefits include:

  • Learning and fine-tuning fundamentals and critical skills
  • Attracting college offers and potentially landing scholarships
  • Developing weaknesses into strengths
  • Receiving personalized critiques and advice
  • Learning drills to improve performance
  • Competing outside of the season
  • Gaining critical knowledge from top level coaches
