Crusaders to Host Summer Softball Camps

The Valparaiso softball program will be hosting a pair of softball camps this summer.  The Crusaders will host a camp for youths ages 13 and up on June 18-20, and will host another camp for children ages 12 and under on July 16-18.  Both camps will be held on the Valpo campus at the Valparaiso University Softball Field.

Both camps will include defensive and offensive skill work followed by scrimmages on the final day.  Skill work for pitchers and catchers will also be held.  This will allow participants to learn new drills and put their new skills to work during live action, so the Valparaiso University camp instructors can continue to help participants improve on the field.

Both camps will be held from 9am-noon on each of the three dates.  The cost of the camp is $100 for pre-registration (June 5 for 13 and up; July 3 for 12 and under) and $115 for late registration and walk-ins.  For more information on the camp, contact the softball office at 219-464-5047 or e-mail assistant coach Leslie Malerich at  Interested parties can also visit the camp’s online website at, which also has a link for online registration.
