Our camp is designed to instruct in all facets of softball play. We believe that learning the correct way is the only way to develop. We stress skills that each girl will need to learn in order to participate and enjoy the fun that softball has to offer. Our camp is staffed by coaches and former players from Smithtown who are familiar with our tradition of softball excellence, and who are excited about teaching the game.
