Softball Camps

Grades 1-12

The foundational philosophy of Blugold Softball, as well as Blugold Softball Camps, is “compete and win.” At UW-Eau Claire, softball players and coaches approach competing differently. If we are working to be the very best version of ourselves every single day, no one will care who gets the credit when we succeed. At the same time, being the best version of ourselves will raise the level of play of our teammates.

“WIN” is an acronym in the softball program that may be familiar to some: What’s Important Now. Using the “WIN” approach helps our players and coaches stay focused on the present and the process, not overwhelming ourselves with the outcome.

During Blugold Softball Camps, participants will be challenged by the physical components of the game of softball as well as mental, emotional, and leadership components. Camps are directed by the coaching staff, and current and former players. Camper-to-coach ratio is kept very low due to the detailed nature of teaching the components of the game. It is our hope that participants will leave camp with increased knowledge, after enjoying the quick-paced, interactive, and competitive drills and situations presented.
