The Catching Specialty Camp is a great and exciting way to learn about the specifics of the catching position.
The UTPA staff, along with former professional catcher Norberto Lopez, will provide instruction using advanced and creative teaching practices that will enhance the overall development of your catching ability.
Catchers will be taught the specifics of sign communication, set up techniques, footwork, receiving, throwing to bases, calling pitches, fielding ball in front of the plate, pop flies, and field communication. Additionally, with the demanding need for leadership at the catching position, catchers will receive instruction on how to increase their mental toughness behind the plate. The Catching Specialty Camp is a must for any player who wants to improve their overall catching ability.
$35.00 per session or $75.00 for all 3 sessions.
The purpose of our camp is to make every individual a better ball player. We successfully accomplish this by
building on strengths as well as recognizing and improving areas of weakness.
Please come dressed in practice attire with tennis shoes and baseball shoes, gloves and your bat.
All camps at the Manny Mantrana Baseball Academy are staffed with current Broncs coaches and players. We feel that working with people associated directly with our program helps the camper get a firm grasp on the principles and techniques taught to Broncs baseball players. On occasion, former Broncs players will join the camp as guest instructors.
The camper will have access to the same facilities as the UTPA players; Edinburg Baseball Stadium, Home of the Broncs.
