Softball Mini Camps

Our goal in running the winter mini camps to help each player become more skilled in softball. We are focusing on aspects of the game that are very detailed and that coaches sometimes just don't have the time to go over at practice. I am very excited and happy to off these min camps and look forward to working with all the players.

Camps are taught by former college softball players.

Camps will be held at Winnebago Elementary School in Bloomingdale.

Camps will be from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Ages 5 and up

Camps are free for all BBSA players. Non BBSA players fee is $10 per camp or $50 for all camps.

Players will receive helmet stickers for each camp they attend. If they attend all camps, they will receive a t-shirt and a special gift.

Please register for the camps that you are planning on attending. Walk ups are welcomed but we would like to know the number of players who are comng beforehand so that we can more efficiently plan.

Non BBSA players can pay at the door.

Please forward any questions to Jim Vargas or call/text 630-776-7045.
