Central’s Wares Teaches Beyond the Diamond in Softball Camp

Dozens of high school and junior high girls are in Pella this week for Central College’s annual Championship Softball Camp.

Many camps have become game-only tournament-style camps that lack instruction and information, and Dutch head coach George Wares says that’s one thing that makes this one unique. While the on-field activity is important for campers, he says that they’re getting just as much from off-the-field activities.

Wares says that it’s an intense week of softball, and they really challenge the girls in many different facets. He says that it gives them a taste of what collegiate softball is about, and helps many girls decide whether it’s really what they’re looking for.
