Softball Winter Pitching Clinic

The Warhawk softball team is proud of the winning tradition that has become a habit at UW-Whitewater. Over the years, the Warhawks have won a league leading 14 WIAC Championships, including six titles in the past eight years.  The UWW softball team also leads the league with 10 WIAC Tournament Championships, including six consecutive titles from 2013-2018. The Warhawks have appeared in the NCAA tournament numerous times, while finishing the season as the NCAA Division III National Runner Up in 2008 and with a 3rd place finish in 2014.

Throughout the years, the Warhawks consistently find themselves among the leaders in many of the WIAC statistical categories. The 2023 season should prove to be another successful year for the Warhawks as they return the majority of their roster from 2022. Through our winter clinics, we provide an opportunity for all student athletes to become part of a successful and winning tradition. This camp is available to players in grades 3-12.

Kachel Fieldhouse

The 50,000 square foot space is an all-purpose facility that performs numerous functions for members of the campus and community. 

Converse Track is a 200 meter Beynon BSS 1000 synthetic surface (Hobart encapsulated), eight lanes in the straightaways and six in the turns, where ¼ inch pyramid spikes are used. There is a 130 foot long jump runway, with the pit ten feet from the board, and an unlimited triple jump runway with boards at 28, 32, 36, and 40 feet, and wood boards at 28 and 36 feet. The pole vault has a 120 foot runway, and there are two rings for throwing events, both with laser measuring. 

The fieldhouse also houses four multi-purpose courts for indoor tennis. That facility was redone in 2012 with a tennis friendly surface to slow the bounce down to a more true tennis bounce. Baseball and softball do some of their off-season work in the fieldhouse and indoor batting cages and mounds help out when inclement spring weather occurs. The Warhawk volleyball team also uses the fieldhouse, with tournaments occupying several courts in addition to Russell Arena. The fieldhouse can also set up four basketball courts for general recreation or intramurals.
