UNCW continued to be an offensive leader in the CAA, and nationally, in the 2012 season with the program. The Seahawks ranked in the nation's top-30 in eight categories, including batting average (22nd), runs (27th), hits (12th), doubles (23rd), home runs (11th) and stolen bases (12th).
In 2013 UNCW laid claim to two All-Americans in rising senior Ryan LaGrange and 23rd round pick of the Milwaukee Brewers Michael Bass. Both led a stellar offensive line up for a Seahawks team that reached a 21st ranking nationally and defeated a UNC team that was ranked #1 in every national poll. LaGrange finished with a .370 batting average with 78 hits, 14 doubles and 5 home runs; while Bass boasted a team high .380 average including 21 doubles, 81 base hits, 4 home runs and was 26-of-27 on stolen bases.
Right View Pro is a video analysis software used with our players, allowing us to go back and look at virtually every swing a player has had since the beginning of the year. We can slow down, pause, and even compare our players' swings side by side with almost any big leaguer. Right now our analysis system consists of three cameras, LF line, RF line and behind home plate. All analysis will be reviewed during camp in order to assure your understanding of what we are working on to improve your swing.
Each camper must bring his own baseball equipment. Players should be properly equipped; a glove, hat, bat, cleats, running shoes, baseball pants, belt, and socks. Helmets will be available for those of you that don't own one.
Please check your email regularly as this is our primary way we communicate. Any additional information that we need to convey as the camp draws closer will be passed on to you via the e-mail address that you supplied when you signed up for camp. Please make it a habit to check your e-mail, this will eliminate any confusion and or miscommunication.
Parents are welcome to stay and watch the camp from the stands.
The camp is open to any and all entrants. Limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
Check-In is at 8:00am (for group 1) and 1:00pm (for group 2) on each day of camp. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your session.

What if I have to cancel a camp?
We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection".
We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps.
Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
