South Georgia State Softball announces summer day camp for students in 1st – 8th grades

The South Georgia State College (SGSC) Hawks softball program will offer a softball day camp for campers in first through eighth grades Monday, June 4 – Friday, June 8, 2018. The camp will be held at the Hawks’ Nest softball field on the Douglas campus of SGSC located at 100 West College Park Drive in Douglas, Georgia.

Camp begins at 8:00 am each day and ends at 12:30 pm.  Campers should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to camp and will be dismissed promptly at 12:30 pm for pick-up.

The staff is committed to teaching fundamental skills and tactics to players of all ages and abilities in a positive and fun environment. Training sessions are conducted by current Hawks’ coaching staff and players whose goal is to provide quality individual and group instruction while emphasizing character and sportsmanship.

Campers should have comfortable clothes for working out. Cleats are not required, but attendees should have a glove, a batting helmet, a bat and a water bottle with their name on it.

If it is raining when you drop your camper off, we will begin camp at our covered hitting facility.  If there is lightning during camp, all campers will be moved to safety and once it stops, we will continue camp.  Players must bring appropriate footwear for any indoor activities, i.e. sneakers or turf shoes.

South Georgia State Softball camps and clinics are open to any and all entrants within the age specifications listed, on a first come first served basis. For camp information and to register, go to
