Top 4 questions about softball combines  

What should you expect at a softball clinic? 

Clinics are offered as both one-on-one training and small group lessons. They provide a chance to sharpen your skills in preparation for playing in front of coaches. The format usually includes multiple stations focused on individual skills, such as base stealing, hitting, pitching, and catching. While colleges do offer clinics, athletes can also find clinics close to home for a low fee.  

Clinics are a great alternative to college camps because they are generally cheaper and offered locally. The only downside is, they don’t offer the same opportunity to get exposure.  

What are the different types of softball clinics? 

Athletes can find a clinic for any of the nine softball positions. Some of the most common clinics are for hitting, pitching, and catching. Clinics will focus the entire session on drills that will help athletes improve position-specific skills. 

Why should you attend softball clinics? 

The main goal of attending a softball clinic should be to improve position-specific skills to help your game and, in turn, your recruiting process. Athletes can implement the skills they develop in these sessions during competitions, camps and showcases when college coaches are present. 

What does it cost to attend a softball clinic? 

Clinics are offered as both private and group sessions, and typically cost between $30-$100. Athletes will also be able to find clinics offered in packages (i.e. 4 sessions for $60), giving you the most bang for your buck. 


Clinics offer small group training at a relatively low cost. Connect with college coaches across the country with a free NCSA Recruiting Profile. Create a free recruiting profile today.
