MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin softball team will host its annual winter exposure and skills clinic December 28-29. The two-day camp will utilize a new format and begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 28 and end at 8 p.m. The camp will start again at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 29 and conclude at 2 p.m. All activities will be hosted in the Tom and Kathleen Elam Center on the UT Martin campus.
UT Martin head softball coach Donley Canary and assistant coaches Sarah Daws and Ashley Archer will serve as camp directors. In addition to the coaches, several past and present UT Martin players will serve as camp instructors. The coaches’ main emphasis will be development of the individual player skills in hitting, fielding and throwing plus identifying players that can play at the next level.
“Our softball camp will focus on developing the proper work ethic as well as creating the proper mental attitude to participate in softball at the next level. Participating in this camp is an opportunity to be identified as a potential intercollegiate player whether it is at the junior college, NAIA or NCAA level. Last year over 200 high school age prospects attended the camp and it was a great benefit to evaluate them up close and personal,” Canary said.
The cost of the camp is $100 per camper, which includes both days, if registered before December 16. Registration after December 16 and up until the day of the camp or at the door will be $125. The cost includes camp insurance, t-shirt and lunch/supper both days for the camper. Campers will be grouped by age and ability for individual and group instruction.
