White Sox FastPitch Pitching, Hitting, and Slapping Camp in Glen Ellyn
LISLE, IL – The Chicago Bulls/Chicago White Sox
Academy announced that it is hosting a series of Summer Fastpitch Softball Camps at their Glen Ellyn facility, located at the Ackerman Sports and Fitness Center, 800 St. Charles Road in Glen Ellyn.
The camps in Glen Ellyn run June 13th through July 11th, with no session on July 4th. The camps will meet once a week on Wednesdays. The Fastpitch Pitching Camp goes from 10:00am-11:30am, the Fastpitch Hitting Camp goes from 11:30am-1:00pm, and the Fastpitch Slapping(Drag Bunting) Camp runs from 1:00pm-2:30pm. Registration is open to girls ages 9-14. The camps can be signed up for individually, and the cost of each camp is $99.
Our Fastpitch Hitting Club will focus on teaching the “absolutes” of hitting. Every great hitter follows some basic fundamentals to maximize power throughout the swing. A strong focus on stance, linear movements, rotation, contact point, extension, and follow through is sure to make your daughter a more confident hitter.
Our Fastpitch Pitching Club is perfect if you are a pitcher looking to keep your skills sharp during the season. This specialized camp will teach your daughter the proper pitching mechanics including grip, motion, arm circle, release, leg-drive, and follow through to throw harder and have better control. Pitchers must bring their own catcher.
The White Sox Training Centers have improved the fundamentals of more than 50,000 players. This summer, it’s your turn to step up to the plate and train with the best! With programs for boys and girls at every age and ability level, our professional coaching staff will teach many training skills used by the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox summer camps are in over 175 neighborhoods throughout the Chicago area. Every participant in the summer camp program receives six free White Sox tickets, an Academy hat, t-shirt, graduation certificate, and an exclusive tour of U.S. Cellular Field with one guest. Restrictions apply to ticket vouchers. All athletes seven and older will also have their abilities tested in some of the same skills that pro scouts use to evaluate talent. The Top 30 qualifiers in each age group will compete in the finals at U.S. Cellular Field in September at our Champions Day event.
The Chicago Bulls/Sox Training Academy opened in 2001 in Lisle, Illinois and runs extensive training programs for boys and girls from beginner to professional. There are additional satellite White Sox Academies in Glen Ellyn, LaGrange, and Schererville, IN. For more information or to register for a summer camp, go to
