NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Due to the overwhelming response to the since sold out University of Notre Dame Softball Elite Team Camp being offered in January 2017, Irish softball has added a pair of camp opportunities the following day to the winter clinic lineup. Elite Irish Practice and the Irish Hitting Institute are both scheduled to be held on Jan. 29 on the Notre Dame campus.

The first Elite Irish Practice is set for 8-11 a.m. on Jan. 29 inside the Loftus Sports Center. Participants in grades 4-12 are encouraged to register for this session, which will feature the same drills and instruction seen during a typical day of Notre Dame softball practice. The cost of the three-hour camp session is $200 per player, and is limited to the first 48 participants to register. This session is expected to sell out.

A separate afternoon session, the Irish Hitting Institute, will follow from 1-3 p.m. inside the indoor batting cages at Frank Eck Baseball Stadium. Registered participants in grades 4-12 will learn the ins and outs of how to be a successful collegiate hitter from the Notre Dame softball program, one of the top six national finishers in NCAA team batting average in each of the past three seasons. The cost of the two-hour camp session is $125 per player, and is limited to the first 30 participants to register. This session is also expected to sell out.

For additional registration information on both camp offerings, digital registration forms are available under the `Schedule’ tab at
