Softball Canada will be hosting a pair of identification camps for its junior and senior women's fast pitch teams in Cloverdale this summer.

The Western Regional camp for the senior women will take place June 25-28 at Cloverdale Athletic Park, and is the second of two camps. The Easter Regional will be two weeks earlier in Brampton, Ontario.

The camp will be comprised of fitness testing, positional testing, small group training and intersquad games. Its purpose is to identify athletes to play for Canada at the International Softball Federation's Women's World Championships in Haarlem, Netherlands Aug. 15-24.

Following the two regional camps, the Senior Women's national team will play two tournaments in July – the U.S. World Cup of Softball in Irvine, California and the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship in Surrey.

Softball Canada will also be staging three regional camps for its junior national team, with Cloverdale Athletic Park the site of the second camp June 27-28.
