2018 Harvard Softball Season Recap:

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.

Crimson Softball Summer Small Clinic Sessions

08/07/2018 ~ Tuesday Registration Ends: 08/07/2018$75.00 - $150.00 | Soldiers Field - Harvard University 65 N Harvard St Boston, MA 02163

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.
