The Colleges of St. Scholastica in Duluth and St. Benedict in St. Joseph, along with The Danes travel softball program are collaborating to conduct a softball camp on March 2-3, which will be hosted by the Osakis Softball Program.
The Softball Tune Up camp will include a variety of sessions. Saturday, March 2 opens up with Pitching and Catching sessions for girls in grades 7-9 at 2:30 and grades 10-12 at 4:15. In the evening there will be a Coaches Clinic beginning at 6pm. On Sunday, March 3 the skills session will begin at noon and run until 5pm for grades 7-12.
Jen Walter, a 1981 graduate of Wadena High School, is in her 14th season at The College of St. Scholastica. This is the third straight year that St. Scholastica has traveled to Central Minnesota and second consecutive year they have been in Osakis. The first year they were in Wadena. Also joining Walter will be Rachel Click, who is in her first season at The College of St. Benedict and Tim Husted coach of The Danes for 17 years.
“I’m excited Coach Walter invited me to join her camp staff. It’s an excellent opportunity for me to work with Central Minnesota athletes, learn from great coaches and promote the College of Saint Benedict and Blazer softball,” said Click, a former All-American shortstop at Gustavus Adolphus.
Husted added, "Considering the success of many high school softball programs and the strong base of skills in the Central MN area, I'm enthusiastic about the opportunity to bring both fundamental and advanced pitching content to the clinic to help them continue to improve and achieve tremendous success".
“We’ve had great turnouts the last two years and we are excited to be back,” said Walter. “This is a very unique opportunity for softball players in the Central Minnesota area. With Rachael and Tim joining us they will each bring a different perspective that I think will only enhance the camp.”
The camp and coaches clinic will take place at Osakis Public School.
