"Catching is the most important position on the field. If it is you desire to improve your catching skill, JUST BLOCK IT CAMP led by Mike Gehrer is a must. You will be trained in every phase of catching. I have witnessed the immediate improvement of catchers from 8-18. Have a fun day and improve."

“The Just Block It Catching Camp is the most comprehensive, position specific camp I have ever been a part of. Young catchers will learn every aspect of the position from an enthusiastic staff who are passionate about the game of baseball and the catching position. This camp is a must for all catchers who aspire to take their game and their team to the next level!”

“I have been associated with Mike Gehrer’s “Just Block It” Baseball Catchers’ Camps for eighteen years and I am more impressed each year. Mike has directed the Johnny Bench Award Catcher’s Camp each year since our existence, in conjunction with Hall of Famer Johnny Bench. His organization, enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to teach the fundamentals of the catcher’s position are superior to any I have seen. Young catchers definitely benefit from his training, professionalism, ability to motivate and get the best out of each person. He has a love and special aptitude for helping young people; every boy or girl will come away improved and more enthused about the catcher’s position. I know, because I have observed over 2,500 young catchers attend these camps in the eighteen years."

Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission Founder of the Johnny Bench Award
"Coach Gehrer is the best youth instructor I have ever been around. His passion and energy for teaching the game of baseball, and more specifically catchers, is unmatched by anyone in the business. Catching is such a demanding and important position that requires specialized instruction for every skill level and the JBI camps provide just that. I guarantee that after attending a JBI camp your son or daughter will not only have learned a tremendous amount of new information but more importantly leave with a new excitement and passion about catching."

"My 2 sons recently attended the Just Block It Catcher's Camp. It was the best catcher's camp we have ever gone to!! My older son, 14U, plays on a USSSA AAA/Majors team. My younger son, 12U, plays on a AA team. They are both catchers. My sons have been to a number of catcher's camp in the past. None of them were close. Just Block It was the complete package. It had an awesome group of coaches, top of the line equipment, and a fast paced / positve environment. All of the coaches were knowledgeable/experienced, most having played professional baseball. Since my sons were in different sessions, I saw the staff teach to 2 different age groups. They were incredible!!! The coaches explained everything at an age appropriate level. This camp took place at the Michigan State University's indoor practice. The Spartan facilities were world class. They had enough training aids. The groups were split up into decent sizes. Everyone got lots of reps. The pitching machines were great. And for my Freshman, they were prepared for grading the players. The energy level of this camp was off the charts. The coaches were positive, encouraging, and enthusiastic. From the sidelines, it was apparent that all of the coaches enjoyed teaching these young catchers.
My sons and I will return next year. Just Block It is the best catcher's camp out there!!
Keep up the great work!"
