CLICK HERE: Winter Exposure Camp

MARTIN, Tenn. –
The University of Tennessee at Martin softball team will host its annual winter exposure and skills clinic January 6-7, 2018. The two-day camp will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 6 and end at 8 p.m. The camp will start again at 9 a.m. on Sunday, January 7 and conclude at 2 p.m. All activities will be hosted in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center on the UT Martin campus.

UT Martin head softball coach Donley Canary and assistant coaches Sarah Daws, Tori Reed and Tanner Wessling will serve as camp directors along with college coaches from across the area. In addition to the coaches, several past and present UT Martin players will serve as camp instructors. The coaches’ main emphasis will be development of the individual player skills in hitting, fielding and throwing plus identifying players that can play at the next level.

“Our softball camp will focus on developing the proper work ethic as well as creating the proper mental attitude to participate in softball at the next level,” said Canary. “Participating in this camp is an opportunity to be identified as a potential intercollegiate player whether it is at the junior college, NAIA or NCAA level.”

“Last year over 170 high school age prospects attended the camp and it was a great benefit to evaluate them up close and personal. However, enrollment will be limited to 150 campers in the future. We put an emphasis on putting on a quality camp and numbers must be limited to do so.”

The cost of the camp is $125 per camper, which includes both days, if registered before Jan. 2. Registration after Jan. 2 and up until the day of the camp or at the door will be $175 (pending available space). The cost includes camp, t-shirt and lunch/supper both days for camper. Campers will be grouped by age and ability for individual and group instruction.
