Beginning on 6 January 2019, Baseball PEI will be running 13U player development camps in four different locations across Prince Edward Island: Hernewood Intermediate School in the Western region, Summerside Intermediate School in the East Prince/Mid-Isle region, the Norton-Diamond Indoor Soccer Complex for the Capital region, and Mount Stewart Consolidated School for the Eastern region.
The ten-week program will be compromised mainly for skill development with each session focussing on three different areas in an effort for each player to improve their game by learning and performing proper skills and concepts. The skill development will be at a higher level – the curriculum the instructors will be teaching will be formed based on latest elite baseball knowledge and teachings, with input and advice from both former and current Provincial team coaches. However, these camps are open to anybody regardless of their skill level.
Time and Locations for Camps:
The cost for the ten weeks is $75, which can be paid at the beginning of the first session. Anyone who will be turning 10, 11, 12 or 13 years old in 2019 is welcome to register. Each participant will be required to have a baseball glove, helmet, water bottle and indoor sneakers to wear (if you are a catcher and have your own catching gear, please bring that as well). We will only be registering 20 players per camp, so sign up ASAP (a waiting list will be created after 20 are registered for a camp). In order to register, please complete the Google Form for the appropriate camp below:

St. Peter’s Bay native Nathan Jones has signed a letter of intent to play Junior College baseball at Williston State College (https://wsctetons.com/index.aspx?path=baseball&&tab=0), starting in the fall of 2019.
Jones, who was a member of the 2018 PEI Youth Selects and 2017 PEI Canada Games team, is currently in his second year at Badlands Baseball Academy (http://www.badlandsbaseballacademy.com/) in Oyen, Alberta. The Grade 12 student has committed to play with the Williston State College Tetons, who play NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) baseball in the Mon-Dak Conference. Williston State is located in Williston, North Dakota.
Nathan Jones is an all-round player who has a big bat, is very sound in the infield, and has a great amount of potential as a pitcher. At the National level, Jones has excelled in the past. At the 2018 Baseball Canada Cup in Moncton, NB, Jones hit .364, and as a pitcher at the 2017 Canada Games, Jones pitched five innings, giving up no runs on two hits, walking two batters and striking out eight. As well, he was named a tournament all-star in the 2016 Ray Carter Cup (Baseball Canada National 15U Championships) in Summerside.
Baseball PEI congratulates Nathan and wishes him all the best in the remainder of the school year at Badlands and the upcoming year at Williston State College.
The 2019 PEI Youth Selects will be competing at the Baseball Canada Cup in Regina, SK, from 7 – 11 August 2019.
