The Quesnel Girls Softball Association (QGSA) held a training camp at the Quesnel Indoor Sports Centre March 12 – 13, which was instructed by coaches from Beyond the White Lines Softball Academy. There was a total of 50 girls participating with 46 from Quesnel and four from Prince George.

The camp offered girls from 6-17 years of age an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of softball, which are batting, throwing, back catching, and pitching. Organizer, Debbie Bautista says a camp like this is great for the girls.

“It’s a really good warm-up to our season because a lot of the girls don’t have the opportunity to practice softball, until they actually get onto the field,” Bautista said.
