TAKE YOUR GAME TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
America's Baseball Camps and the University of California San Diego have teamed up to bring you our 16th annual San Diego Pro Baseball Camp. In 2010, the UCSD baseball team won a second consecutive NCAA West Regional Championship. We are excited to welcome 2012 CCAA Coach of the Year, Eric Newman along with other professional instructors for this amazing week of baseball.
Players will train daily at the beautiful Triton Ballpark, home of the UC San Diego Tritons. Don't expect to stand around! Just as in college baseball, we spend our training time on drills, skills and games. Players will spend up to 20 hours with our professional staff while receiving verbal assessment of their skills throughout the week. The goal for our staff is to provide the tools you need to take your game to the next level and beyond!
Campers will be broken into groups by age and ability levels. General age divisions are: 8-11, 12-13, 14-16 and 16+.
Professional Pitching Mechanics, Swing Video Analysis or Fielding Analysis
Players will be evaluated personally with Video Analysis software and have the chance to have their swing and/or their pitching mechanics and/or fielding techniques broken down by a Professional Instructor. Professional Instructors will provide an evaluation of feedback, changes and recommend drills to help fix or improve your swing, pitching mechanics or fielding techniques.
Check out our One Day Hitting Camp!
We will be conducting an extensive Hitting Camp on July 8th from 2:00pm-6:00pm. This camp will cover every aspect of hitting and is a great way to "kick off" the week.
