This camp is a great way to get your child started in softball. No previous experience is necessary.  This camp is targeted to players who have very little, if any, experience playing baseball. All basic offensive and defensive skills will be taught, including throwing, catching fielding (grounders & fly balls), hitting, basic base running skills, and position play.

Players will be divided by skill and age for the camp as much as possible during the camp. Number of separate groups depends on the number of players that register.

    The Indoor Softball Facility at The Edge in Fort Collins

    A Full-size Indoor Diamond is the centerpiece of The Edge when it is configured for baseball and softball. A floor-to-ceiling, heavy duty vinyl divider curtain creates a 120' x 122' -area for the full-size diamond. Standard bases, available on site, are anchored into sleeves at whatever distance is needed for the team using the field, from 50' to 90'. There is plenty of room to 'play behind the base' no matter what base length is used. A standard pitcher's plate, also anchored into a sleeve, is set at the required distance.

    The foul lines and batter's boxes/catcher area are permanently inlaid in the turf. Dugouts with benches and bat racks are provided along the first and third baselines. Seating for spectators is provided behind chain link in 'center field.'

    On the other side of the divider curtain, three 51' drop-down tunnels, fully netted, are available for live-hitting or throwing. Four additional 75' throwing lanes are also available as a bull pen area or for 'long toss. Each lane can be setup with a portable pitching platform if desired. In a separate area next to the field, there are 4 permanent batting cages equipped with brand new pitching machines. Altogether, a total of 11 individual practice areas are available for hitting or throwing in addition to the full-sized infield.

    Coach Turtle Thomas, Pitching Coach and Recruiting Coordinator at Arizona State University, a perennial NCAA baseball power, has given several sessions of hitting clinics at The Edge over the past four years. His comment on the facility is: "Of all the indoor baseball facilities I've used for my clinic, this is the best in the country!"
