CARBONDALE -- The Southern Illinois University softball program has set dates for its 2019 Winter Pitching Academy.

The pitching academy is open to seventh through 12th graders and will consist of four weekly sessions to run throughout the month of December. Just one session, from 7-8:15 p.m., will be offered.

The sessions will be held at the Garden Grove Event Center in the indoor workout facility. Participants must provide their own glove and turf or tennis shoes (no cleats).

The cost is $200, payable in cash or by check to SIU. Credit cards are not accepted.

There is a limit of five participants, so it is imperative that interested attendees act quickly to ensure a spot.

Assistant coach Kenzi Tate will lead each session and questions are to be directed to her by email at

Prospective attendees may email Tate to reserve a spot, but payment must be made immediately to keep that spot or it will be released to the next name on the list.
