Come on out...have some fun...and improve your skills!
The Softball Camp will focus on fundamental softball skills, including throwing, catching, batting, bunting and fielding. In addition there will be emphasis on strategy and game situations. Girls 5 to 13 of all skill levels are welcome. A portion of the camp will be devoted to developing pitching skills with one-on-one training with Clyde Bennett, one of the area’s finest mentors of fast pitch softball. The girls will work hard to learn the skills and although fun, there will NOT be time to goof off. Every player will be able to field a ground ball, catch a fly ball, tag a runner out, slide into a base, swing well and bunt within the 5 days. They will understand the fundamentals of the game and how every defender moves on every pitch.
Clyde Bennett is the men’s fast pitch softball guru of Santa Barbara. A member of the Santa Barbara Softball Clubs hall of fame, Clyde has competed, coached and umpired at the national level for over 40 years. In addition he is a certificated Elementary teacher with many years of teaching experience in the classroom and in the field of Physical Education. For over 4 years Clyde has coached softball camp and we are excited for him to come back for another year.

All-Star Qualifications: Given that we are a new league, the following All-Star rule is of common concern to both the Santa Barbara and Goleta girls softball associations.
A player who wants to play all-stars will play for the league they are registered in. The SBGSA boundaries include the Santa Barbara School District, Montecito Union School District, and the Cold Springs School District. The GVGSA boundaries are the Goleta Union School and Hope School Districts. If a player lives within the Santa Barbara bounderies, and has played previous seasons with the GVGSA, she is able to register with the GVGSA and play all-stars with the GVGSA. We plan to offer an all-star opportunity for girls in the SBGSA.
