This is a week long (five day) camp designed for kids age 5 to middle school age. Kids will be grouped based on their age and skill level. Camp begins at 8:30 and ends at 3:00. The cost of the camp is $150. Lunch and snacks are included in camp fee. A camp t-shirt is guaranteed for all who register by July 1st.
Here players will learn basic and advance fundamentals like, directional movement and agility, concentration, confidence, and decision making. We will also focus on what to do before you compete (preparation, hydration, etc...). More importantly the participants will learn leadership skills that will also help them outside of the game (verbal and non verbal communication with team fundamentals while developing relationships for the future).
In addition, campers will learn the proper approach to hitting, base running, differences between primary and secondary leads, stealing, and sliding. Campers will learn different methods of pre-pitch preparation, fielding mechanics, footwork, arm angle, and throwing techniques. Campers will also learn positioning for cut-offs and relays, run down techniques, pop fly communication and much, much more......
