Steve Woodard will be bringing several former major league baseball players to assist in the camp.
The baseball camp will run for 4 days, with 1 camp running each day. Kids will have the opportunity to attend all 4 days if they so choose as well. The first camp will cost $100 and adding a second camp will only be $50.
The first day of the 2-day camp focuses on the defensive aspect of the game. We teach your kids the correct way to throw and pitch (girls have a softball pitching instructor) and all players are taught proper defensive techniques as well, which includes proper fielding and defensive positioning. The second day focuses on offense and includes hitting, bunting, and running.
