As you diligently work your way through the college selection /recruiting process, has the thought ever crossed your mind, "I wonder what life is like as a college baseball player?"
The coaching staff at the University of San Francisco would like to answer that question for you through "A Day in the Life" Campus Experience.
Whether you've previously been to a college camp or showcase or not, USF offers a truly unique opportunity. As the end of the weekend you will walk away with a comprehensive understanding of what it's like to be a student-athlete on the Hilltop.
At "A Day in the Life" you will have the opportunity to:
-get a glimpse of what being a student is like at USF through a class room session with Associate Head Coach Troy Nakamura
-work hands on with the coaching staff and players on sharpening the mental and physical side of your game
-experience strength and conditioning the Dons way through a lecture and workout in the Moran Strength Center with one of our strength coaches
-and of course compete like a Don at Benedetti Diamond
- From one busy day of experiencing the demanding schedule learn the difference between those who are admissible, ready to survive or ready to thrive as a student-athlete.
Our goal at the end of the experience is for you to walk away with an understanding that it takes a balance of challenge and support to reach your full potential as a student, athlete and person. Your development in these areas is 100% dependent upon the people that you will ultimately be surrounded by and the culture that they work toward building everyday through hard work and having fun.
We invite you to experience "A Day in the Life" and look forward to seeing you on the Hilltop.
