Time: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. (See also "Nighttime Hitting & Pitching Clinic Add-On" below)
Ages: 8-18
Cost: $285

Hitting camp will consist of skill work in the morning and LIVE-AT-BATS off of pitchers in the afternoon. The skill work will focus on contact points, vision, pitch recognition, bat speed and launch angle, and more. Hitters will have the opportunity to transfer the skills learned in the morning session to live-at-bats off of the pitchers in Tiger Park. During the afternoon session, hitters will take an in-depth look at the mental side of hitting, study keys to situational hitting, and learn different approaches for different pitchers and pitches. This camp gives athletes the unique chance to take their game to a higher level with more advanced information.

Pitching camp will consist of learning drills specifically targeted for each age/ability level during the morning and throwing to live hitters in the afternoon. During the morning session, pitchers will learn skills to improve spin, accuracy, and power. Pitchers will have the opportunity to transfer these skills directly into live play during the Live At-Bat afternoon session. Live At-Bats against hitters will offer pitchers a chance to learn how to set up a hitter up during an at bat, the “Ins & Outs” of controlling the strike zone, and the mental side of being in the circle. This camp opens a great learning environment as it offers a unique opportunity to face live hitters without the stress of consequences, wins or losses.

* All groups will be split by age & ability to ensure the best learning environment possible 
* Pitchers will NOT need to provide a catcher

You can expect January Elite Camp to educate, motivate, and transform athletes and coaches by current LSU softball staff, current & former LSU athletes, National Pro Fastpitch players, professional clinicians, and top college coaches from across the country. Our goal is to spread as much skill instruction and fundamental drills as possible in the two days of working together for a unique experience.

Hitting sessions will offer drills and philosophies aimed at creating power, recognizing pitches, improving plate approach (contact points & vision) while working on the mental game.

Defensive sessions will be broken up by position and will cover proper footwork, angles, range, overhand throwing techniques in order to prevent injury, and other skills that will mimic an LSU Softball Team practice.

Pitching sessions will be broken up by specific pitch and focus on the entire fundamental base of each pitch. From there advanced skills and spin will be taught through spin drills, body position, & live throwing. Strength and core will also be a major focus for the upper age groups in order to work on creating speed and power. In the afternoon, pitchers will throw to catchers with the aim of transferring the skills to full pitching.

* All groups will be split by age & ability to ensure the best learning environment possible 
* Pitchers will NOT need to provide a catcher
