WCC Hitting Camp returns for year 26

By on June 1, 2010

Boys and girls ages 8 through 14 are invited to the 26th annual Hitting Camp, hosted by Waubonsee Community College. The Hitting Camp runs from Monday, June 14, through Thursday, June 17, for baseball and fast-pitch softball.

Instruction begins each day at 12:30 p.m. and continues until 2:30 p.m. on Waubonsee’s Sugar Grove Campus.

The head instructors for the camp, Waubonsee’s Dave Randall and Naperville North’s Mark Lindo, will teach the fundamentals and techniques of hitting with the emphasis on the basic mechanics necessary to excel at baseball and softball. Station work, group drills and individualized instruction are used to teach each player those skills. The cost is $70 for each participant and $50 for each additional family member. Each participant receives a “Hitting Camp” T-shirt. Brochures are available at Kirhofer’s Sports in Aurora, Tri-Cities Sports in Batavia or by contacting Dave Randall at (630)466-2527. Registration is on line at www.waubonseetickets.com.
