Each day of the camp is broken out into sessions of Instruction, Game Time and Supervised Recreation. Instruction includes drills, positional work, chalk talk and video analysis. Each afternoon the players compete in throwing, running, hitting, bunting and fielding segments. Teams compete throughout the week in games, and also earn points for good sportsmanship and behavior, culminating in an awards ceremony at the end of the camp.

All players leave with individual written evaluations from their instructors.

Heart of the Okanagan

 

The Okanagan Softball Camp is located in Oliver, B.C., the heart of the sunny Okanagan Valley and “The Wine Capital of Canada”. The area is surrounded by lakes, mountains, orchards, vineyards, and golf courses, and offers many other outdoor activities for families to enjoy during their stay. The climate, dry and hot, is ideal for softball camps as well as vacationing.
