Herkimer Softball to host 2017 Fall Camp

Herkimer, N.Y. - Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m.  Participants will begin warming up at 8:30 with the current Herkimer Softball team and the event begins at 9am sharp.  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 2018, 2019 2020 and 2021. 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 and home to home. 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. Campers are encouraged to bring a lunch.  After the break players will showcase their talent in a game setting. The Herkimer College coaching staff will conduct all drills and coach the teams in the afternoon games. 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 an attached registration form.  Send completed forms via email at anadiopr@herkimer.edu.  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.  You can access the registration form using this hyper link:  Showcase-Flyer-Softball-Clinic-2017.pdf
