U.S. Olympian, UT legend Cat Osterman to coach Round Rock Express softball camp

The camp will be available to kids ages six to 14.

ROUND ROCK, Texas — The Round Rock Express announced that two-time Olympian Cat Osterman will join the Express Camps team as a coach for the upcoming softball camp at Dell Diamond from Aug. 3 to Aug. 6. 

According to the Round Rock Express, the four-day camp will run from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. The camp will be available to kids ages six to 14. 

“Summer camps play such an instrumental role in growing the game of softball and I am honored to be able to share my experiences with kids right here in Central Texas,” Osterman said. “I am so thankful for the Round Rock Express and their commitment to teaching baseball and softball to our next generation through summer camps.”

The first three days of the softball camp will feature drills that touch on hitting, throwing and fielding to develop campers both mentally and physically, according to the Round Rock Express. The final day will focus on applying those skills to game situations. There will also be a private awards ceremony for the campers prior to the conclusion of the camp.

“We are so excited to welcome Cat to our group of knowledgeable, experienced and passionate coaches this summer,” Express Camps Director Chase Almendarez said. “We pride ourselves on providing big-league-caliber instruction in our baseball and softball camps, and having someone with Cat’s unparalleled resume join our team further enhances that mission.”
