Here's a chance for those young sluggers and pitchers of yours to take their games to a higher level.

And what better place to do that than the home of the state of Montana's only Division 1 softball program? A beautiful facility, with talented coaches and players looking forward to working with kids during two softball camps. But hurry! The camps are limited to the first 72 participants and the first one is next week!

The Griz Softball Elite Day Camp is July 17-19. This camp is open to girls entering grades 9-12, July 17 from 12:00 - 6:00, July 18 from 9:00 - 4:00 and July 19 from 8:00 - Noon. This camp will focus primarily on individual skills in individual, team and live game situations.

The Griz Softball General Day Camp is August 6-8 from 8:00 - Noon each day. It's open to girls entering grades 3-8 and will be devoted to helping improve overall softball skills, with some various competitions and games as well.

Both camps will be at the Griz Softball Field, Higgins and South Avenue in Missoula. The camps will be run by head softball coach Melanie Meuchel, along with assistant coaches and some of the Griz players from the 2017 team, so your kiddos will be in good hands. All the registration form and info you need is available here. Hey, maybe that next Griz softball super star is playing catch in the back yard right now!
