2018 Harvard Softball Season Recap:
Ivy League Championship, All-Ivy Recognition and All-Region Team
Harvard softball finished the 2018 with a 24-16 record and captured its seventh Ivy League title after sweeping the championship series. The Crimson also claimed Ivy League Pitcher of the Year and had seven players earn All-Ivy recognition. Rounding out a great season, four members of the team were named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Northeast All-Region team.  
 
CoSID Academic All-District Team
Harvard softball had two team members named to the 2018 Google Cloud CoSIDA Academic All-District team. Academic All-America Awards require players to maintain a GPA of 3.30 or higher to be nominated. The two Crimson payers were part of 11 recognized in District I, comprised of New England softball programs. Harvard was the only Ivy League institution to land players on the All-District team.

Crimson Softball Clinics

Crimson Softball Clinics at Harvard University offer an opportunity for players to receive valuable instruction on the fundamental skills of softball. Players will be made aware of the characteristics that define successful softball players. General courtesy, respect for teammates and opponents and the importance of hard work will be taught to the players through example by the Crimson Coaches. Drill progressions will be aimed towards recognizing and developing good habits in all aspects of the game. Contests built into drills capture the learner’s attention, which results in attentive practice. Organized games between players will provide a competitive outlet after specific drills have been practiced.

 

Our Crimson Softball Clinics at Harvard University range in ages and we should have a program to fit your needs. If you do not see a date that works for you at this time please check back to the site as we add new sessions often.These clinics are open to any and all entrants.

OPEN EVENT IN NEW WINDOW

Description

This fastpitch clinic series is for girls of all ages and abilities who are interested in learning and developing the skill and proper technique of pitching, catching and/or hitting.  We have structured the clinic to accommodate athletes by age and ability.   We will make sure that each student is placed in the proper group. Space is limited to 30 space in each session.

 

Pitchers

Beginning pitchers will learn the proper technique of the fastpitch motion. Intermediate level pitchers will focus on control and speed development along with learning the change-up and curve pitches. Advanced pitchers will continue to work on pitches they currently throw, as well as learn new pitches.  Pitchers need to bring someone who can catch for them. ** NCAA Rules require us to charge a nominal fee ($10.00) for any pitcher who brings a high school -aged individual to act as their personal catcher. Please pay this fee during registration check-out on-line, or in person at the clinic.

 

Catchers

Catchers will work on improving their skills (including set-ups, blocking, and throwing to bases) through supervised drills and teaching sessions. It is highly encouraged that each catcher has their own catching gear for each clinic.

 

Hitters

Hitters will begin by working on the fundamentals of hitting, which will progress during the course of the clinic.
