Elite Winter Hitting & Pitching Camp
Hosted by Maxx Faspitch
This advanced level softball hitting clinic will be led by the Frostburg State University coaching staff.
This clinic is open to softball players graduating in grades 7-12.
*PLEASE NOTE - This is an instructional camp.
This clinic will have a limited number of spots per session, so please register early!
There will be NO walk-up registrations accepted. Be sure to register early!
The Frostburg coaching staff has substantial experience training athletes and an interest in the application of advanced concepts including biomechanics, functional anatomy, motor learning, and motor control. The staff has spent hundreds of hours studying video of elite baseball and softball hitters and applies this knowledge on the field with hitters of all ages and levels. Hitters attending this clinic will be learning the swing that is being taught at the top levels of college softball!
In addition to the unique philosophies and drills that we will be incorporating into this clinic, we will also use provide video analysis and measurements of each player's swing. We will be measuring hand speed, barrel speed, exit velocity, launch angle, and distance.
The schedule will be broken down as follows:
Intro to hitting philosophy
Hitting skill work
Hitting cage work; measurement & analysis
Live hitting off pitchers
In the advanced Pitching session, Coach Shock will focus on fastballs and change-ups for the first part of of the session. Drills will be geared toward pitching mechanics, speed, and location.
The second part of the session will be devoted to developing other pitches including drop, rise, curve, screw. Pitchers will focus on developing the pitches that best match their level of ability.
The final portion of the camp will focus on drills and exercises specifically geared toward developing overall pitching strength and power.
If pitchers stay for the hitting session, they will also throw live to batters.
At the end of the camp, participants will receive an evaluation sheet with drills to help them maintain what they’ve worked on.
Pitchers do not need to bring a catcher.
In the advanced catching session, Coach Vasko will focus on receiving, footwork, transfers, arm slots, and blocking.

All clinics are open to any and all female entrants limited only by age. Some clinics may have limited spots available—early registration is encouraged to reserve a spot.
No discounts are provided for our clinics.
All summer clinics will be held regardless of weather. Indoor facilities will be reserved in cases of inclement weather.
If inclement weather is predicted during winter clinics, please check the front page of this website for any postponements or cancellations. If you are traveling a long distance, please email or call our staff prior to departing. All efforts will be made to operate clinics during times of inclement weather, unless a state of emergency is declared by the local government.
No refunds or credit will be available if clinic is held but the participant is unable to attend due to weather.
If a clinic is canceled due to weather, participants will have their choice of credit toward a future clinic, or the re-scheduled clinic, for the full amount paid, or a refund minus an administrative fee of 20% of the registration cost (this fee covers our website/registration costs + a non-refundable deposit on facilities).
MAXX Fastpitch will issue refunds for cancellations that occur any time up to 5 days prior to the posted start time of clinic. Refunds will be issued in full, less an administration fee of 12% of the registration cost.
Any cancellations made inside the period of 5 days prior to the posted start time of the clinic will not be eligible for a refund. We will, however, offer a credit to a future event. Refunds are not given within the 5 day period prior to the camp because each camp is limited in the number of participants. All of our expenses are pre-determined for each camp based upon the number of participants. It is difficult for us to fill an open spot in less than 5 days prior to a camp. The no refund period begins exactly 5 days prior to the posted start time of the camp (for example: for a Saturday camp scheduled to start at 8am, no refunds will be provided beginning at 8am the Monday prior to camp). THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS REFUND POLICY.
There may be times when a college coach scheduled to instruct is unable to attend due to travel, illness, or personal reasons. We will make every effort to replace the coach with another college coach. Sometimes these incidents are beyond our control. There will be no refunds issued due to any changes of the instructing staff that occur within 14 days of the camp. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS REFUND POLICY.
Please see our weather policy for information regarding weather-related refunds.
