COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — The dates that Tennessee Tech softball coach Tory Acheson will host his two-day Mini Camp have changed. The veteran Golden Eagle coach will host the camp at the Tech Softball Field on Tuesday, June 15 and Wednesday, June 16.

For serious softball players, this Mini Camp is designed to give campers a concentrated dose of softball instruction, including a college prep seminar to learn about the recruiting process, plus pitching and catching clinics. The pace will be quick, and all aspects of the game will be covered.

The Mini Camp will feature Tech head coach Tory Acheson along with current and former team members. A nationally known speaker and clinician with appearances at the NCAA Yes Clinic, National Sport Clinics, Nike Camps, Championship Softball Camps, and many state and local events, Acheson has been the director of Championship Softball Camps at Tech for the past nine years.

The Mini Camp is a part of the instructional program designed to allow players of all skill levels to gain valuable knowledge and experience. Instruction will feature individual and small group work to develop skills for athletes of all ages. Athletes will be grouped according to age and ability level throughout the course of the Mini Camp.

General instruction will be given in all fundamental areas including hitting, bunting, base running, and defense. Special emphasis will be given to individual position instruction, which will include pitching and catching instruction.

The cost of the camp is $80. Participants should bring a glove, cleats, tennis shoes, a bat (optional), water bottle, lunch and enthusiasm. Family and team discounts are available, and each camper will receive a T-shirt.

The camp will run from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on June 15, and 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on June 16.
