Elite Next Level Pitcher / Catcher Camp: Come get a FULL day of training with our amazing staff. This year's staff might just me one of the best in years. Pitchers will learn the specifics of throwing pitches by UNC Pitching Coach Chelsey Barclay and a staff of experienced pitching coaches. Master drills to take home that will help develop or improve your pitches and overall mental and physical preparation for game situations. It is recommended that pitchers have a strong base and understanding of pitching mechanics prior to attending. Catchers will learn advanced techniques for blocking, throwing, framing, calling pitches and the mental side of the game. Leave this camp with the confidence to lead your team from on the mound and behind the plate. The fee includes tuition, lunch, and attention from a certified athletic trainer if needed, and a Nike Camp T-Shirt. Enroll in the Elite Next Level Special and stay July 10th-12th. Compete on teams with other position players, learn other positional skills, hitting, baserunning and mental training.
**You no longer need to provide your own catcher—only registered campers will be allowed to participate in pitching AND catching.**
