The Fall Academy is designed to provide quality coaching to Northwestern’s local talent and to engage our community in Northwestern Softball. We will specifically target hitting and pitching instruction throughout the fall with help from our coaching staff, currents players, and alums. Instruction has a very good coach to player ratio and will cater to the specific needs of the individual in addition to fundamentals and drill work. We encourage you to register online, but we accept walk ups for academy sessions.

What To Bring:

  • A 2017 Northwestern Softball Camp Release Form
  • Any equipment you would use in a game for either hitting/pitching.
  • Turf or tennis shoes are appropriate for our indoor.
  • Pitchers must bring their own catcher. This can be a parent, sibling, friend, etc. Catchers who are girls 9th grade and up are required to pay the camp fee for the pitching session due to NCAA rules.
