Over the past four years, we've run our Winter Vacation Camp in NH, and every year people have asked us if we would ever consider running it somewhere warm...well, we are doing just that!
This year we will be running our Winter Vacation Camp Dec. 28-30, 2012 @ the Baltimore Orioles Spring Training Facilities (Ed Smith Stadium Complex) in Sarasota, FL!
It will be a 3-day camp with 4 hours of instruction per day (12 hours total instruction) and will cover all aspects of the catching position, including proper receiving and blocking techniques, efficient throwing patterns and catcher throwing mechanics, as well as all fielding skills.
Each catcher will be held to a standard that parallels their skill level. Coach Jay Weaver and his staff will have the ability to challenge the older catchers throughout the camp with higher velocities (85+ MPH for the guys, 60+ MPH out of a windmill for the girls).
Schedule (Dec. 28, 29 & 30):
8am-12pm: ages 8-12 (Baseball guys who are playing on any field other than the 90-foot diamond, and Fast Pitch girls who will be playing U10 or under this upcoming Spring should attend this morning session).
1pm-5pm: Baseball players ages 13-18 (or 12's who will be playing on big field this Spring) and Fast Pitch girls who played U12-U18 this past Summer should attend this session.
Cost per player: $300.00
