JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 5, 2014) - ETSU Softball will host its annual Winter Skills Camp Jan. 24 and 25 inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center. The camp will feature three separate sessions, and will include instruction from ETSU Head Coach Brad Irwin, the ETSU coaching staff, as well as ETSU players.

Two grade-specific sessions will be held, with an 8th-grade-and-higher all skills clinic ($90) taking place Saturday, Jan. 24 from 9:30 a.m., to 4:30 p.m.

Sunday, Jan. 25, a 7th-grade-and-lower all skills clinic ($40) will run from 1:00 p.m., to 5:00 p.m.

As part of the pitching and catching session, pitchers will receive detailed instruction of basic mechanics while learning drills to further perfect their movement pitch skills.
