Re: George Mason University Winter Baseball Camps (Youth and High School)

My son has done several of these youth camps and had a great time but I feel the need to point out that there was very little instruction. Most of the coaches are on the college team and all they do is walk around and throw BP.

Yes, the coaches at these camps are the players and staff from the university. However with that being said, the instruction on the drill or drills take place at the start of each station and then repetition of the drill follows. If there needs to be more instruction during the drill the coach or coaches will explain what needs to be done to try and help improve what they are working on.

From my exp. they will go through some drills, maybe a session on NCAA recruiting rules, warm up and get 15-20 pitches, fastball and any off-speed pitches he has. Most of the time they give you a schedule of what they are going to cover. Most of these are MM for the schools.

Are College Camps Wort It?

Hey guys, had a quick question about a pretty gray area, college camps. I'm a high school pitcher, and one of my top schools emailed my coach. A few days later, I get an email to an 'Elite Prospect' camp for the same school, pretty expensive. However, if it has a legitimate value, or say recruitment chances, I will be more than glad to invest in it. Are these camps a revenue outlet, or do they actually have some recruiting value? Would my situation make it any different? There are less...

Best Camp that don't give catchers short shrift?

HitRunThrowCatch ·
15 yo, only been playing ball for four years, catching for two. He's a wall behind the plate, coachable, and as a bonus, can hit. Since he was a late-comer to baseball, he attended a few camps. He did learn quite a bit. Now that he's primarily a catcher, he'd like to do a camp that concentrates more on those position-specific skills. HS coaches aren't much good on instucting, and son needs a better throw. Florida Baseball Camp has been recommended, but perhaps y'all have other thoughts?

Swagg: Welcome to the site. From your profile I see you are a 2021 RHP. It's early in the recruiting game, unless you are in the small % that the P5 are looking at. I would have a better vibe if the college had CALLED, not e-mailed your HS coach. At your stage I would look to find a third party (PG or UA) or an inexpensive showcase that can get your measurables (MPH , primarily) for pitching. I think "school specific" camps are good, later on. After attending $$ showcases, tournaments , etc,...

Did your son attend this fielding camp after the school/coach had expressed serious interest? I ask because often when my son emails a school, he gets an email response that is really just a form camp invitation. I assume going to a camp in that case is unlikely to generate real interest from a school, unless a player really offers something pretty extraordinary?

Welcome to the site! My player is also a 2021, and I can tell you that lots of D1 schools are actively recruiting rising sophomores right now (especially pitchers). We were at a big 15u tournament last week that had dozens of colleges scouting the games, including P5 and mid-level schools. So it is possible that this school is interested in you specifically since they emailed your coach. That being said, it is also true that many college "prospect camps" are money makers. You should ask your...

Chico: Son was on the radar with school and had e-mail communication (probably at least once every 6 or so weeks) with the coach. He had become a "high follow" with coach once he ran fastest 60 at a Showball showcase with 225 players in December. Coach sent son nice personalized e-mail which really changed him from "camper" to prospect. The camp was during President's Day or MLK weekend, and a hitting camp the day before (same coach) was full. Unlike previous meetings with this specific...

Camps are tricky. You could go to most team's camp and see 100 kids with that one group of 5-6 players grouped together. That group will be the "recruits". The challenge is to know whether you are being considered for that group. Typically the "emails" are marketing to get $$. My 2015's experience was if a RC said to him that they liked his play and wanted all the coaches to see him then the camp was considered. This camp was also used as our unofficial visit opportunity and would go to the...

Swagg - Welcome to the site. I agree with Ripken and the other posters to find some inexpensive camps to "get your feet wet" and get some measurable's first unless you know that the school has you on their board already. I would also suggest multi-school camps to increase your exposure to many coaches at a cheaper price. I believe that once a school has shown legit interest in you then the individual school camp makes good sense, but not until you have had some sort of dialog with the...

Swagg, You mentioned your "coach" in your post. I assume this is either your high school or travel coach. Have you asked him as you are getting started on this recruiting journey? We all have to start somewhere. For us, it was son's national travel coach who opened some doors and showed us the ropes until we were able to zero in on what exactly son wanted, and what schools were looking for someone like him. His travel coach was a great sounding board as he had been through this countless...

Great point. I recommended he ask his HS coach in my original post because I thought that’s who the school had emailed. I should’ve said to speak with whichever coach they emailed. Like FenwaySouth, our travel coach has been the main point of contact for all 5 of the kids who have committed from our team so far.

Swagg, personally, I wouldn't recommend attending any college camp without speaking to one of the coaches beforehand. As a rising sophomore, college coaches are not permitted to call you directly, but they can talk to you if you call them. That kind of phone call is typically arranged by your travel or high school coach. If you can get the coach on the phone, there's a decent chance that he's serious about recruiting you. Once on the phone you can ask him if he thinks your talent level plays...

It really depends on the school. My son has been to three college camps without talking to the coaches or being identified first. Two of the camps he was asked to stay and tour the facilities (pre new rules) and began conversations with them after the coaches followed up with my son’s coach. The 3rd camp was a waste of time and they didn’t even look at him. My son sent some video the next day and they called his coach...they didn’t even know he was at the camp.
