Directors Note to Campers

"Our coaching staff each year is extremely motivated to work with the youth and HS players at our camps. Campers will receive professional-level instruction from coaches that have played and taught at the college and professional levels. We stress the importance of team building, individual mental and physical development in our structured drills and competitive games. Our goal is to provide mental/physical cues the players can take back with them when they complete camp. Our camp base is the future of the game of baseball. They will complete camp with an understanding of the basic baseball fundamentals, what it takes to play at the next level, and grasp the importance of playing the game with energy and passion in a team environment."
