Traction's Softball camps provide all children, ages 5-11 the opportunity to learn the game while having fun. Our camps are welcome to the first time player as well as the experienced travel ball player. We form our training groups and teams according to age level and skill level of each camper. Our state of the art facility has 12 fields (10 of them artificial turf) and 12 covered batting cages.

At the beginning of each day, all campers will go through an abbreviated Traction workout to teach the fundamentals of speed/agility & power. OUR CAMP IS DIVIDED INTO 3 SEPARATE ACTIVITIES:

  • FUNDAMENTAL TRAINING: During this segment of training, the campers rotate through a series of training stations that cover skills that are required by all players regardless of the defensive positions in which they play. Some examples of fundamental training groups are: base running, sliding, bunting, cut offs & relays, run down plays and many more.
  • POSITION INSTRUCTION: During this segment of training, the campers will be given the opportunity to train at the following positions: Pitching, Infield and Outfield. Campers will also participate in a hitting class during this segment.
  • TEAM GAMES: We play team games with some modifications to increase the learning aspect of the game of softball. The coaches are instructed to stop the games when mistakes are made so that our team games become a learning experience.

Below is an example of a typical day of camp:
