Published 9:18am Friday, July 5, 2013

SUFFOLK— Cover 3 Foundation will partner with the Galaxy Fast Pitch Softball Association to host the 8th Annual Galaxy Softball Camp on August first through third.

“It’s amazing that we are going to have Galaxy softball camp for the eighth straight year. Each year, young girls between the age of 7 and 12 show up excited, eyes wide open and end up completely enjoying the experience,” said Keith Biando, camp director.

The Galaxy Softball Camp will be held in Chuckatuck, Virginia, at the Galaxy Fast Pitch Complex. The camp will be open to girls ages 7 to 12 years old. Times of the camp will vary depending on the age of the girls. From 9 a.m. to noon the camp will be for girls 7 to 10 years old, and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the camp will be for girls ages 11 to 12. The cost for this camp will be $75 before July 15 and $85 after July 15. Registration includes a T-shirt and instruction.

It is no secret that Greg Scott has an undying passion to help the youth. Football is his passion; however he lends a hand to athletes from all sports and children from all walks of life.

“It is an honor to be in a position to help the Galaxy Softball Organization,” Scott said. “I think they are an awesome group of coaches, players and parents. I wish them the best moving forward.”

Managers and Coaches of the Galaxy’s Fast Pitch travel teams will host and direct the camp. Past Galaxy players and members of the older squads will be on hand to offer assistance to the girls as well. The camp will be limited to 40 girls per session to ensure individualized instruction.

When asked about the structure of the camp Coach Biando replied, “In addition to all of the drill stations and learning different softball skill sets that will help them be better ball players, the kids have lots of fun. Freeze pop breaks, water balloons, skills competition and a softball scrimmage are all events that the kids look forward to each year.”

C3’s Kid’s Meal will provide a healthy, balanced and free lunch and snack to all participants and to any child who is in attendance at the complex. To learn more about Cover 3 Foundation and C3’s Kid’s Meals, visit www.cover3foundation.org.
