Thanksgiving Baseball Camp

Saturday 24th of November, 2018.

​A big thank you to all the Families that attended! 
80 Players to 20 Coaches,
It was a fun learning environment for the day. 

The Morning Session was a station-to-station progression that started with:

  • Team stretch and activation

  • Base-running. Leads, Stealing and how to effectively run/ round the bases. 

  • Introduction to higher level 'arm care' plus 'cues' that are important in regards to effectively throwing a baseball. 

  • Throwing Program with Target Practice challenge 

  • Outfield play. How to use the 'pro-step' in transferring the baseball from catching to throwing. 

  • Infield play. Fundamental Progression with our hands into footwork around the baseball, finishing up with effectively turning Double plays.


The Afternoon Session was all about Offense:
For the younger group, we took a 'pro-style' batting practice that involved. 

  • Live Batting Practice

  • Live Defense Stations 

  • Live Baserunning Stations (Reading the ball and getting as many repetitions on the base paths as possible)

  • Then we finished the day with a Wiffle Ball Tournament -


For the Older Group, we started in the batting cages focusing on: 

  • Bunting (finer points and different types)

  • Introduction to Ballistic training by executing hitting progressions with weighted-balls 

  • Tee Drills. Learning the subtleties of your swing

  • Off the Machine - Executing consistent timing and rhythm, from on deck to in the box​-


Which prepared us for: 

  • Live Batting Practice

  • Live Defense Stations 

  • Live Baserunning Stations (Reading the ball and getting as many repetitions on the base paths as possible).
