Learning the fundamentals is a crucial aspect to the success of any player. Players will learn individual skills, baseball fundamentals, and team strategy. The Academy will teach through the areas of Outfield, Infield, Pitching, Catching, Rundowns, and Baserunning.
The Games Camp is designed to be taken in addition to the Kid's Academy and is an opportunity to utilize the baseball skills learned in the morning session in a competitive games environment.
