Softball to host Hitting Camp


The Pitt-Bradford softball program is hosting its 2014 Hitting Camp each Sunday during the month of February from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The dates for the camp are Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23. The camp will be open to all students currently in grades four through 12.

The clinic will cover the fundamentals of hitting, hitting drills/stations, bunting/slapping and one-on-one instruction.

Registration is limited to the first 24 applicants in order to provide more individual attention. Pre-registration is required, and the registration deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 29. Registration will take place at the Richard E. and Ruth McDowell Sport and Fitness Center starting a half hour prior to each session. Each session will be held inside the field house.  

The clinics will be staffed by University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Head Coach Tina Phillips, assistant coach Jeff Kuleck and the 2014 Panthers. The Panthers have won four of the last eight Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference titles. They have made three trips to the NCAA Division III Tournament and two trips to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Tournament.

The cost of the four-week camp is $80. Checks are asked to be made payable to the University of Pittsburgh. All campers are asked to bring a bat, helmet, batting gloves and sneakers. No cleats please. A bat and helmet can be provided should the camper not have one.
