CHICKASHA – Area softball players will have the opportunity to receive professional instruction from Drover softball coaches and players in a two-day long camp at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

During the camp, athletes will focus on fundamentals and mechanics of all aspects of the game. This includes hitting, fielding, pitching, catching, base running as well as the mental part of softball.

The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an hour break for lunch, on July 22 and 23 at USAO’s Bill Smith Ballpark.

Instructors, including USAO Head Coach Jadyn Wallis, Assistant Coach Ken Richardson and current and former members of USAO’s softball team, will work individually with each camper to help her achieve greatness.

Additionally, an athletic trainer will be on site both days of the camp.

The registration for the camp, open to athletes ages 8 to 18, is $70, with team discounts available. Early registration will ensure a place in this year’s camp.

Campers should plan to bring a sack lunch, a glove and a batting helmet; a bat is an optional choice. They should wear proper softball attire, including a t-shirt, ball pants or shorts and cleats.

In her second season at USAO, Wallis led the Drovers to a 37-24 record, the best record since 2006. In the Sooner Athletic Conference, one of the toughest leagues in the NAIA, she had nine players named All-Conference, including the SAC Newcomer of the Year.

Wallis is a former pitcher for University of Oklahoma, the 2013 NCAA Softball National Champions.
