Youth Baseball, Softball Clinics To Be Held at RSU

Rogers State University will be hosting baseball and softball clinics in April to help area youngsters learn and develop skills necessary for playing the sports.

Both camps will be taught by Ron Bradley, RSU's physical education coordinator who was recently inducted into the Oklahoma High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame. Bradley is a former head baseball coach who led teams to four state championships while at Claremore, Jenks and West Fork (Ark.) high schools. He has directed numerous camps and clinics for baseball and softball coaches and players throughout Oklahoma and surrounding states.

On April 14-16, RSU will host the Camp of Champs, which is designed to develop and hone proper techniques in throwing, fielding (ground balls and fly balls), hitting and base running. The Camp of Champs is open to players ages 8 to 13 from throughout the area.

The Camp of Champs will be held 5-7:30 p.m. on April 14-16 at the RSU athletic field and stadium on the Claremore campus. Cost per player is $50 in advance, or $60 if registering at the camp. A camp t-shirt will be provided to the players.

For younger softball and baseball players who are just being introduced to the sports, RSU will host two Buddy Camps on April 18. The Buddy Camps are designed for a parent, grandparent, or a buddy (over 18 years of age) to actively participate with a child to learn more about baseball or softball. The camp is open to children ages 5-7, and participation by the adult is required.

Separate baseball and softball camps will be held Sunday, April 18, at the RSU athletic field. The baseball camp will be held 1:30-3:30 p.m., while the softball camp will be held 4-6 p.m. The cost is $30 per adult/child pair, which includes a t-shirt for both the adult and the child.
