Baseball PEI is excited to announce that we will be running six camps over the winter of 2020/2021, at the EBA Complex (85 Maple Hills Avenue, Charlottetown, PE), in the areas of hitting, pitching, infielding and catching.
Each camp will run over five weeks and will feature five ninety-minute sessions. The cost will be $125. To register, go to https://www.rampregistrations.com/login?v3=fd798ce6. It will be first-come, first-serve in terms of registration. There will be a maximum of twenty players permitted in each camp, and there will be a waiting list as well.
Cole MacLaren and Logan MacDougall will be the co-head instructors of the hitting, infielding and catching clinics. Tyler Johnston will be the head instructor of the pitching clinics. Other top coaches from across the province will be also assisting with these camps.
While these camps are open to any young baseball player looking to improve their skills and knowledge of the game, they will focus on improving not just the fundamentals of the skill, but teach the certain skill at a higher level. This will leed to a noticeable improvement in the skill, whether it be hitting, pitching, infielding or catcher. As well, our lead instructors have all played the game at a higher level, are well-versed in the latest developments of each skill, and have demonstrated an ability to teach and coach at a high level.
