The nationally ranked Cowley College softball team, winners of two of the past three conference titles, are host to the Tiger Strong Summer Camp on June 26-27 at Lady Tigers Field.

Ages 10 and younger will take part in the clinic from 9 to 11 a.m., while those ages 11-18 will participate from 1 to 3 p.m.

The cost is $40 per camper and includes instruction, a Cowley softball T-shirt, as well as drinks.

The camp is led by head coach Jenny Hoyt, who is assisted by returning players from the team.

Hoyt helped the Lady Tigers to a pair of conference titles and a 93-20 record as a player during the 2006 and 2007 seasons. She returned in 2011 and spent four seasons as an assistant coach prior to becoming only the fifth head coach in the history of the program.

Cowley is 181-95 in the past five seasons. The Lady Tigers have placed in the top seven at five of the past eight National tournaments.

The clinic is designed to cover skills needed to become a highly successful player.

The coaches will focus on teaching the fundamentals to help players become better offensively and defensively.

During the offensive session participants will work on hitting, bunting and slap hitting, as well as base running.

The defensive session will focus on teaching the fundamentals to help players to become better. There will be many drills to improve infielders and outfielders, proper throwing mechanics and fielding ground balls and fly balls.
