Softball camp fires up Monday


WEST JEFFERSON — The annual Diamond Stars Softball Camp hosted by Ashe County High School will get underway on Monday.

The camp lasts from Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. until noon each day. The cost for this year’s camp is $40.

Varsity head coach Bill Key along with several current and former players will be on hand to teach the basic fundamentals of softball while also helping each youngster improve their individual skills. Coach Key has 26 years of coaching experience in the Ashe County school system.

Rising third grade through rising ninth grade girls are eligible to attend.

Each participant should bring their own equipment such as a bat, glove and cleats. Campers may also want to bring extra money for concessions that will be sold during breaks.

For any parents that choose to pay with a check, please make them payable to Bill Key.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, call Coach Key at 336-846-2906 or 336-977-0563.
