This summer, the Harker summer program will offer its first-ever softball camp for girls in grades 4-8. Open to players of all skill levels, the camp will cover offensive and defensive drills and simulate in-game situations to help players build confidence and improve their skills on the field.
The camp will also have students work on fundamental skills such as throwing, catching, fielding hitting and base-running, all in a fun, positive environment managed by trained and experienced coaches.
“This is the first year for our summer softball camp so we are excited and ready to get it going,” said softball coach Raul Rios, who led Harker’s upper school varsity softball team to its first CCS playoff appearance in 2011. “I am looking into getting some guest college players to help us with the program and also to speak to the girls about being student athletes at the college level.”
Harker’s summer softball camp will run June 24-28, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Harker’s middle school campus, located at 3800 Blackford Ave. in San Jose. Registration for the camp is at the The Harker Summer Sports Camps website.
