Each camper, parent, and their coaches will leave with a working knowledge of how to drill the skills needed to be a successful catcher. We encourage parents and coaches to attend and learn with their campers. You may video drills if you wish. It’s not just what campers do while they are at camp that will make them better, but what campers do on a routine basis on their own. Each camper receives a camp t-shirt and tons of confidence to go play the position with pride and passion.
Youth campers age 8 - 12 receive 6 hours of instruction over two days. We start with stance and build from there. We will cover stances, receiving, blocking, throwing mechanics, throwing to all bases, plays at the plate, bunt plays, pop flies, and how to lead the team.
High school campers age 13 - HS will receive 8 hours of instruction and evaluation over the two days. In addition to the fundamental instructional review, this camp includes a showcase environment. College coaches will be present at camps on college campuses, working and evaluating campers as the camp progresses. We will cover stances, receiving, blocking, proper throwing mechanics, throwing to all bases,plays at the plate, bunt plays, pop flies, and wild pitch recovery. The high school campers will be evaluated on their receiving and throwing skills. We will get a pop time on each camper and radar their throws. This information is available to each camper for use, at their discretion during the recruiting process.
