Registration for the event will begin at 11 a.m. Participants will begin warming up at 11:30 with the current Herkimer Softball team and the event begins sharply at 12 noon. Players may wear molded cleats, turf shoes, or sneakers. Game-ready softball attire is recommended including softball pants, softball socks and a t-shirt will be provided for all those that are pre-registered. All participants must bring their own equipment.
The showcase will be open to high school level players in the graduating classes of 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. The clinic is designed to be a combined clinic-style showcase where athletes will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their individual skills in all facets of their game to college coaches in attendance. Participants will receive on-the-field instruction from some of the best coaches in the nation.
Player skill measurements will be determined, including home to first, home to home, and agility shuttle run speeds. Players will have their overhand throw measured by the JUGS gun from both the outfield and infield, depending on position. Catchers will participate in a series of drills ranging from blocking to agility as well as having their POP time gauged. Pitchers will be provided the opportunity to showcase their pitching repertoire as well as having all of their pitches gunned. Hitters will take batting practice on the field and will be graded on skills such as contact, bat speed, ball exit speed and power.
Following the skills portion of the clinic, the event will break for rest and a meal. The Accelerate concession stand will be open for players to buy dinner. After the break players who choose to do so will showcase their talent in a game setting. The Herkimer College coaching staff will conduct all drills and coach the teams in the evening games. For colleges not represented at the combine and clinic, results will be emailed to coaches of the colleges in which players have indicated an interest on the registration form. All players are encouraged to contact coaches of colleges in which they are interested to encourage them to attend.
Players are encouraged to pre-register, for the benefit of the student-athlete, by completing a registration form and the first page of the online waiver form. Send completed forms via email or mail to Head Coach PJ Anadio (addresses below). Walk-ins are welcome, but player information will not be included in the booklet provided to college coaches in attendance. There will be many players in attendance from New York State, as well as from the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest.
The cost of the event is $75 for the skills/clinic portion of the camp or $100 for both the skills/clinic portion and to play in the evening games.
