2019 NFCA EXCEL Camp

We are pleased to announce that an NFCA EXCEL Camp is coming to Columbus again on Thursday July 8, 2021 at:

The Fortress 
2050 Recreation Trail 
Obetz, OH 43207

The Ohio Stingrays Showcase will follow on Friday July 9, 2021 at OSU Fred Beekman Park and at Hilliard Municipal Park which is located 20 minutes west of the Ohio State campus area.

The NFCA camp registration form must be completed online. Registration will stay open until the camp is full. Please go to to complete the registration form. Athletes must have completed the 7th grade. Eligible HS graduation years are 2024-2019.


Participation in this NFCA EXCEL Camp is an outstanding way to showcase softball talent to a large cross-section of college coaches. In a camp setting, coaches get to see lots of repetitions at the defensive position and double digit swings at the plate. It guarantees that coaches see athletes field, throw, and hit, in case these opportunities don't present themselves in a game situation.

Athletes will be provided both hitting and defensive instruction by college coaches. Defensively, athletes will select their position of choice for this intense, unique learning opportunity. From there, they will rotate to hitting and base running. In the afternoon session, ALL athletes will compete in games coaches by the college coaches working the camp. The list of colleges that will be participating in the on-field portion of this camp is:

To Be Determined

The camp schedule is as follows:
Warm-up (to be completed on your own): 8:00 am to 8:45 am
College Coach Instruction (Hitting, Base Running, Position Play): 9:00 am to noon
Competitive Games and Educational Q&A: 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Athletes do not have to be playing in the Ohio Stingrays Showcase to be able to participate in the NFCA EXCEL camp.

Please remember that this NFCA EXCEL Camp is administered by the NFCA, not the Ohio Stingrays Showcase staff.
