OTTUMWA—Two softball skills camps have been scheduled for January at Indian Hills Community College. One is for youth in grades 4 through 7; the other is for those in grades 8 through 12.

The camp for the older players — those grades 8-12 — will be held on Sunday, Jan. 5, in the Tom Arnold Net Center on the Ottumwa campus. The second camp, for the younger players, will be the following Saturday, Jan. 11, also at the Net Center.

IHCC players will assist head coach Lindsay Diehl with the camp instruction. The focus will be on offense and especially on hitting including the mental approach at the plate, but there will be defensive drills as well.

In addition to the instruction all who attend will receive a special camp t-shirt.

The cost of each camp is $60. Registration is available at For camp updates you can text 81010 and use the message @812camp.
