2022 WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM IDENTIFICATION CAMPS
Softball Canada will be holding three Women's National Team Identification Camps across Canada in May/June, 2022. Athletes born in 2004 or earlier are invited to register to attend any of the Identification Camps listed below. Athletes born in 2005 and 2006 may be able to participate but will need approval from Softball Canada before registering by contacting Kaleigh Rafter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Women’s National Team coaching staff will operate the Identification Camps with the help of local National Team players and/or Guest Coaches. Each player will be evaluated on speed, throwing, hitting, defensive play and general softball game play.
The registration fee is $100 per player to attend an Identification Camp. A Rawlings National Team camp shirt will be provided.
