Camp Description


The baseball day camp is a great experience for the younger player. The fundamentals of baseball (hitting, throwing, catching, fielding and running), the rules of the game, sportsmanship, and many contests, events, and games will be covered.

This camp is about elevating your game with professional coaching in working on skills. We will include more individual skill work, baseball instincts development, and the details of a successful player. An ideal situation tune up for the all-star or travel team with the season right around the corner. Teams are invited! Safety is a major concern in the day camp, and of course fun, enthusiasm, and positive reinforcement.
