TIFTON — Higher Ground’s MVP Softball Camp returns to Tifton next month.
MVP, which stands for mental, visual and physical game skills, will be operated by Bobby Simpson at E.B. Hamilton Complex June 24-25. Camp will be from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. each day. Players ages 6-17 are invited and will need to bring a bat and glove.
Basic and advanced instruction will be available. Players will be divided into age groups and skill levels. Instruction will be for offense and defense, in addition to a focus on MVP skills.
Simpson’s assistants at camp will be Haley Howell and Nancy Mark. Howell played for Georgia College and made the 2019 Division II All-Southeast Region team. She finished sixth nationally in runs batted in while batting .355. Mark, who led Tift County to five state softball championships, is an instructor at the Dutch National Clinic.
Simpson’s coaching experience ranges from local to international. He has been head coach of the British Women’s Fastpitch National Team, coached at Florida State and for the Kansas City Royals’ baseball academy.
