UPDATE - May 15
New Camp Dates
Pitching/Catching Camp - July 16-17, 2020
Elite Camp - July 20-21, 2020
We reserve the right to combine both camps into one on July 20-21 if registration is low. You will be notified in advance.
UPDATE - May 14
We received word late last night that the NCAA has extended the Dead Period until June 30 so regardless of our previous decision to postpone we would have had to anyway.
At this time there are constantly changing regulations and protocols that we must follow. Three of the main issues among many other issues,
1. We do not know if Virginia will be open for youth activities by then.
2. It is not clear whether our insurance will cover us in the event of a lawsuit resulting from someone contracting the virus due to camp.
3. And MOST importantly we do not want anyone to contract the virus as a direct result of attending camp.
If your schedule does not allow you to attend the new dates you will have 2 options:
1. You can opt for a camp credit for a future Liberty Softball Camp.
2. You can receive a full refund.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.
Please be advised, we do not know if and when hotels in the Lynchburg area will begin booking rooms again. That will be your responsibility to know if you have a place to stay.
Also, if you are considering flying to town please check with the airlines before paying for the camp as many flights are being cancelled even at the last minute.

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY SOFTBALL CAMPS
Summer Pitching & Catching Camp
9:00am - 4:00pm
The purpose of this camp is to provide instruction and feedback on the basic fundamentals needed for every pitcher and catcher at every level of the game. We will be introducing video analysis for both pitchers and catchers as a teaching aid during camp. The pitching portion of camp will provide lectures on the basics of each pitch as well as provide drills and demonstrations by the Liberty Softball pitching staff. Our goal is for each camper to leave camp with new drills to use at home and valuable feedback to help in her development. The catching portion of camp will provide lectures on the 3 basic skill sets of catching: Receiving, Blocking/Picking, and Throwing, and how these skill sets "save runs". We will also teach catchers the importance of cuts/relays, short game, and communication. Our goal is to teach catchers softball IQ and provide feedback on where she can improve most.
Open to All Ages
2020 Fall Prospect Camp
9:00am - 4:00pm
This camp will focus on live rep’s, situations, and softball IQ. This will be a fast-paced environment where our goal is to replicate the pace and pressure of a Division I practice. It will also include a performance evaluation where campers will receive feedback on hitting metrics, defensive measurements, and speed. All metrics will be shared with the athlete and instructors will explain (in a classroom session) how we can use data to identify areas of skill that need improvement and areas of strength. The goal is to provide parents, coaches, and campers with more insight into the skill set needed to perform at the highest level.
Summer Elite Camp
9:00am - 4:00pm
The purpose of this camp is to teach the various skills needed to perform at an elite level both offensively and defensively. This camp is one of our favorites because it allows our staff to work with developing athletes in all areas and test their hard work in fast paced live situations. Day One of camp will focus on the individual's development in her primary position and ways to improve her offensive tools. It's our goal to provide specific instruction and feedback to every camper during Day One. Day Two of the camp will focus on the individual's development in live team situations which includes the ability to execute in defensive situations (cuts/relays, short game, and with the pressure of base runners) and, how to contribute to a team's offensive production. This camp will also include a tour of the Liberty University campus and softball stadium. This camp is for the ELITE softball player. Please do not sign up if you are not considered a higher level player.
