These one day camps will put players through a standard tryout process with timed running, infield and outfield stations, batting practice and hitting stations, catching work, and bullpens, so that they know what to expect on tryout day. Our professional coaching staff will also be providing campers with information and feedback about what coaches look for in a player, how to improve their skills before tryouts, and how to stand out in a positive way. This camp is a must for any baseball or softball players that plan on attending select and club team tryouts at the end of the season.
