Softball Day Camp For Ages 6 to 13

Play, learn and grow with our brand new Softball program. Softball is a popular sport played by both males and females in childhood and as adults. Softball activities focus on technique and game play to improve, correct and enhance enjoyment and abilities for all participants involved and foster skills for life-long fun and enjoyment.

Enrol your child in the Softball program if they are

  • 7 to 12 years old regardless of playing experience
  • 6 years old with playing experience and able to catch
  • 13 years old with limited playing experience
We encourage players of all abilities to attend our camps. Whether your child is brand new to the sport or an experienced veteran there is a place for them at Learn & Play Ball Academy.

For maximum learning we recommend you register your child for the full day program. However you may choose mornings only (focus on skill development) or afternoons (focus on game playing).
