Nike Big League Baseball Camp at The Lawrenceville School Lawrenceville, New Jersey
Big League Baseball Camps has the same objective it has had for the past 65 years, to help every camper improve their skills.
The Lawrenceville School is located in central New Jersey, five miles south of Princeton, 55 miles south of New York City and 40 miles north of Philadelphia. Lawrenceville has 17 dormitories, 10 classroom buildings, and 7 other support buildings on 700 acres in a rural setting.
- Lectures - Lectures are given on the fundamentals of the game.
- Position Play - During the week all positions will be covered by our staff.
- Drills - Drills are used to teach campers the skills necessary to succeed and the notion of teamwork.
- Instructional Games - We want every moment of the week to be a learning experience for every camper. It is for this reason that during games, if a camper makes a mistake or does not execute properly, one of our coaches will show him what he did wrong and how to do it right.
- Individual Instructions - Our camp is known for offering that personal touch and giving the individual attention some campers may need to truly learn and understand the game more thoroughly.
- Teach To Understand - We want every camper to understand the reasoning behind the methods we use. It is for this reason that our coaches take the time to explain the reasoning behind why you execute a certain way.
At the Lawrenceville School, the outdoor facilities include two lighted artificial FieldTurf surfaces for Field hockey, Soccer, and Lacrosse, four baseball and softball fields, 12 combination Football, Field Hockey, Soccer, Lacrosse fields, one football game field, a nine-hole golf course, 12 tennis courts, a 400 meter all weather track, a state of the art ropes course, and a fitness trail.Meet your coaching staff
Director John Carlesi has been leading instruction for past 15 years. The current head baseball coach at Stuyvesant High School, John is a former Division II player and coach at St. Leo College (Fla.). John also served as Director of Staten Island YMCA baseball program.
We compile a highly qualified and professional staff each summer to teach at our camps. All of our coaches are adults who coach in their particular sport. These coaches are high school and college coaches, as well as, professional players and coaches.
We are lucky to have many of the same staff return each year which is important because we know the campers are receiving the very best instructions possible. Our counselors are often former campers who have gone on to college.
