WEST JEFFERSON — It’s that time of year for the annual Diamond Stars Softball Camp at Ashe County High School.

The camp will take place this Tuesday through Thursday at the high school each day from 9 a.m. until noon.

The camp will be directed by varsity softball head coach Bill Key. Coach Key has been the Lady Huskies’ head coach for 17 years and has spent 27 years coaching in the Ashe County school system. Key will have help from current and former players teaching the basic fundamentals of softball and improving their individual skills.

The cost for this year’s camp is $50 and is open to rising third through ninth grade girls.

Campers should be prepared to bring their own equipment including a bat, glove and cleats. Campers may also want to bring money for concessions that will be sold during the day.

If you have any questions, please call Bill Key at 336-846-2906 or 336-977-0563.
