Baseball to Establish 'Diamond University' Life Skills Program

CSUN Elite Day in the Life Prospect Camp (Pitchers Only)

11/17/2018 - 11/18/2018 ~ Saturday - Sunday Registration Ends: 11/15/2018$250.00 | Matador Field Northridge, CA 91330

Grades 9-12 & JC Players


OPEN EVENT IN NEW WINDOW

Description

The Day in the Life Prospect Camp is a great way for high school aged as well as JC athletes to gain knowledge and experience for what it is like to play college baseball at the Division 1 level. This unique camp provides attendees a look inside the Day in the Life of a Matador baseball player. The camp will begin with a short "SPARQ" workout. Here we will work to gain speed, power, agility, reactions, and quickness. After SPARQ on day 1 we will walk over to the classroom to take part in a Diamond University life skills session. This is the corner stone to the value in our camps here at CSUN. This classroom session will connect the three aspects of life: athletics, academics, and social.

 

The afternoon on day 1 will consist of defensive evaluations. Each player will be given the opportunity to take reps at their positions. Once defense is complete, we will break into teams and play a game. Day 2 of camp will have a similar schedule in the morning as Day 1. This is the "Day in the Life" concept at work. In the afternoon each participant will get a chance to go through a batting practice rotation similar to a Matador game day BP. After BP, we will break into teams and play games. Each player will receive a minimum of three innings on the mound.

 

Times: 9:00am-3:00pm (may run longer depending on the length of the scrimmage)

 

Equipment
Each Player must bring his own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, cleats, running shoes/turf shoes, hat, helmets, and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete. Catchers must bring their own gear and all campers must bring their own baseball pants.
