My son is a college So. RHP. He is interested in a one or two day camp in late December put on by an outfit called SideArmNation.com. They advertise college and professional players and coaches as instructors. There would be 40 campers at an indoor facility. They obviously cater to sidearmers. Anyone ever hear of this group or know anything about them?

I followed sidearm Nation for a while. My son is also a college soph. For a while I kept track of his camps hoping that he'd come to our area. I believe the coach/former player is Canadian? My son was not interested. He is a self taught sidearm guy (most are I guess) and I I always thought he might benefit from some sidearm specific instruction.
Yeah we are thinking the same that there may be some benefit to some sidearm specific instruction. My son naturally throws very low 3/4. I’ll let you know if he goes what it’s like. Good luck to you and your son
High change, use the search function and type "sidarmnation". I didn't take the time to read through them again but there are a handful of threads where the owner (I think) contributed or started conversation. I recall some fairly detailed conversation. These may be helpful.
My son is a Fr. college pitcher. Converted to sidearm in rising Senior summer of HS because it felt better/healthier and gave him some new attention from colleges. He went to a Sidearm nation camp this past summer in Indianapolis. He said it was ok but wouldn't necessarily go if he knew how it was going to be. They really didn't do much of signficant value. Didn't even use video, let alone pitch design tech like Rapsodo or similar technology. That would have been valuable. I wouldn't suggest traveling a long distance for the camp, but might get something out of it for a relatively reasonable price if you're close by and have the time available.
Thanks for that input!
