2023 Winter Skills Camp

The West End Waves Fastpitch Softball teams, along with other young softball players, have just completed their 2023 Winter Skills Camp at J.R. Tucker High School in Henrico, Virginia. The camp was designed to provide the players with an opportunity to refine their skills, build teamwork, and gain valuable experience. The players worked tirelessly under the guidance of experienced coaches, honing their abilities in hitting, fielding, and pitching. The indoor facilities at J.R. Tucker High School provided the perfect environment for the players to develop their talents and reach their full potential.

During the winter of 2023, the players are putting in extra effort to improve their skills and build teamwork.
