Dear Takoma Sportscamps Families,

I have been delaying my decision about opening camp to hopefully get some good news. But, it seems that nothing is changing with regards to the regulations that need to be followed in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Public Schools are currently not renting out their facilities. The MCPS Physical Education Guidelines are that there is no sharing of equipment (baseballs, basketballs, softballs, etc). The maximum number of people for indoor space is twenty-five, outdoor space is fifty, both with social distancing. Bathroom and lunch guidelines are still very strict and not conducive to our camp logistics.

I am sorry to say that I will not be able to hold camp this year. We will be back next year. I want to extend the ages for next summer so that the highest age groups can have one more year of camp. Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing everyone in Summer 2022.

Softball Camp Daily Schedule

Morning Camp Talk:

Daily overview by Coach Hoelman, of skils, stations, contests, game schedule, and daily reminders about sportsmanship, safety, and dealing with the heat.

Warm Up:

Campers participate in a whole camp softball warm-up, to prepare them for the day.

Morning Stations:

Campers participate in four to six stations each day, working on all the skills invovled in softball.


Campers eat lunch in an air conditioned cafeteria. Campers bring their own lunch, except on Wednesdays (pizza day). A small snack bar is also available for campers to purchase drinks and snacks.

Cool Down:

Campers relax before their afternoon games, in an air conditioned gym. A short portion of a baseball movie (League of Their Own) is shown, "stump the coach" is played, and the "play of the day" award is presented.

Afternoon Games:

Campers participate in a week long tournament, which allows them to work on their new skills in game situations to maximize improvement.


Campers participate in morning Olympic stations, where campers compete at eight skills stations as a culminating activity for skill development. In the afternoon, campers play in their championship or consolation activity, followed by a brief awards ceremony in the auxiliary gym.
