This four day camp is designed to help players take their game to the next level.
This camp will cover all aspects of the game and the goal is to improve the players basic fundamentals of the game while having fun. Instruction will include the proper techniques of hitting, pitching, catching, infield, outfield baserunning and team defense. We use a positive coaching approach to help the ballplayer raise his confidence and level of play. We take pride in making baseball fun and want to help every Little Leaguer play like a Big Leaguer. The camp is run by members of the coaching staff, current and former professional ballplayers, and current and former Trojans.
Designed for boys and girls from ages 6-12, sessions will emphasize individual skills, fundamentals, and team strategy. Areas covered include everything from outfield and infield play to base-running, sliding and much more in this dynamic youth baseball camp.
The camp is facilitated by USC assistant coach Vinny Lopez. Lopez enters his first year as a member of the Trojans staff after spending the last three seasons as a minor league coach for the Texas Rangers Organization, working for single A affiliates, Hickory Crawdads and the Spokane Indians. Lopez played collegiately at Cal Lutheran University, played professionally for the Savigny Sur Orge Liones in Europe and earned his Masters degree in Education from USC in 2011. Our goal is to keep the camp to a low ballplayer to coach ratio therefore other members of the USC staff will assist if necessary.
Youth baseball camps are open to any and all players 6-12.
Every camper in attendance will be given a camp t-shirt.
After-care available: 3:00 - 5:30 PM ($50.00 extra)
Clothing and Equipment:
Each camper must bring his own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, cleats/spikes, running shoes or turf shoes, hat, and any other equipment they feel is necessary to compete. Catchers must bring their own gear. Helmets will be provided.
