Our goal is to teach players of any age the correct way to play baseball. Many of our campers come with habits that limit their baseball ability. We work to change those habits. Others come with a great baseball background and we will extend their knowledge and step their game up to the next level. Those with little or no experience will learn the basics. Not only will our players learn baseball, they will understand the game of baseball.
These sessions are designed for players at any level who would like to improve their ability to the next level. All aspects of the game will be covered. Players will be broken into groups according to age and playing ability so every player can get coached at their appropriate level.
Pitchers and Catchers
This session is designed for players who are or wish to become pitcher and/or catchers. This session will include drills on technique, as well as the mental aspect of those positions. This session will also teach campers how to strengthen and take care of your arm.
This session is designed to teach players all aspects of the offensive part of the game. This session will include drills on hitting to all parts of the field, bunting, base running and the mental aspect of offense.
