The NPSA has also announced that its annual Summer Softball Camp is currently underway at the park. The camp is slated to run for six weeks by instructors who were recently certified when Softball Canada was in town to conduct a coaching clinic.
There will be positioning skills, offensive and defensive drills and a short teaching session each week. The camp ends on August 22.
