In the big spaces and under the big sky of Anchorage, Alaska, Triple Crown Sports is ready to deliver a ground-breaking fastpitch event.
Slated for August 2-4, 2019, the Great Alaska Showcase will be a college-coach fueled camp/clinic featuring three days of instruction in the morning and controlled scrimmages in the afternoon. For players of recruitable age, it’s a chance to sharpen skills with college coaches on site, and thus not requiring a long trip to the Lower 48 to be recruited.
For younger players, it’s a learning opportunity done at the tempo and with the tenacity expected of players as they grow in the sport. Triple Crown pioneered the coach-driven clinic back in the late 1990s and has a vast list of contacts throughout the college softball world.
The Great Alaska Showcase is done in partnership with Mike Jolin of the AK Krush fastpitch club, which has teams at 10u, 12u, 14u and 16u. The camp is essentially the next evolution for area fastpitch, a sport that has enjoyed remarkable growth – Krush teams at the older ages make multiple trips southward for recruiting purposes.
“This event will allow them and all other Alaska fastpitch players an opportunity to be seen in our hometown without spending thousands of dollars to travel,” Jolin said. “I'm hopeful we can make this a huge success and do it annually. I'm also hopeful families on the West Coast that always wanted to travel to Alaska will come up for the camp and then vacation.”
Triple Crown’s other dedicated Showcase events are held in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. For more information on these sessions and the Great Alaska Showcase, click here: TCS Fastpitch Showcase
