Here is a rundown of our morning drill activities for a typical week:

Monday – Evaluations

Campers go through a series of baseball drills so coaches can get a sense of skill and experience level. These include infield/outfield work, batting practice, base running and pitching and catching. Based on these evaluations, campers are placed in the correct division for their skill and age at lunchtime Monday.

 

Tuesday – Station Drills

Campers are broken up into small groups by skill and age and go through a rotation of different stations such as batting practice, infield, outfield, base running, bullpen work and conditioning. Each camper participates in each station with personal coach attention

 

Wednesday – Team Practices and Position Drills

Campers go with their teammates and coaches from that week and the coach designs a team practice to address any weaknesses seen in the team that week. This is designed not only to help the team in the afternoon games, but also gives campers a chance to further bond with their assigned teammates and coaches.  In addition, before lunch campers will go thorough our new position work drills.  Each camper will pick two favorite positions and go through drills in a small group with coaches at those specific positions.

 

Thursday – Camp Wide Color War

The camp is divided into two halves, a blue and white team, with one team from each division on each half. The teams then compete in baseball events such as home run derby, outfield accuracy throw, speed base running and infield defense. Points are calculated for each team during the morning with the final Color War winner being announced at the end of the day.

 

Friday – World Series Doubleheader

Games in the morning and afternoon on Friday offer a fun, competitive conclusion to the camp week. Many times the week long series comes down to the games Friday. Parents are welcome to observe the afternoon games Friday which are then followed at the end of the day by a weekly camp wide awards ceremony recognizing campers who excelled in the program that week.
