All players play an active role in camp and are continually involved in drills of all aspects. Participants will generally play in their own age group or grade level. However, we reserve the right to move a camper up in age groups, depending on his ability and skill. The older players in camp (grades 7-8) will focus on baseball fundamentals to help the player prepare for the transition to high school baseball. Emphasis will be on individual position play, hitting fundamentals and game play experience.
