Our Camp is divided into 3 separate activities:
- During this segment of training, the campers rotate through a series of training stations that cover skills that are required by all players regardless of the defensive position that they chose to play. Some examples of fundamental training groups are: base running, sliding, throwing mechanics, bunting, cut offs & relays, run down plays and many more.
- During the segment of training, the campers will be given the opportunity to train at their two favorite positions. Pitching, Catcher, Middle Infield, Corner Infield and Outfield play will all be offered. Campers will also participate in an intense hitting class during this segment.
- All campers are grouped by age and skill level and we form teams. We play team games with some modifications to increase the learning aspect of the game of baseball. The coaches are instructed to stop the games when mistakes are made so that our team games become a major learning experience.
Unique to the Mark Cresse School of Baseball, all parents fill out a Coaches Card, which are computer generated to every staff member, to better help us with your child’s individual needs and concerns. Coaches Cards include past playing experience, positions desired to play or learn, and health or personal information that better helps us create a positive camp experience for your child.
Ballplayers with little or no baseball experience
There is no better opportunity to learn the fundamentals and begin to develop self confidence than in a non-competitive learning atmosphere. The Mark Cresse School of Baseball removes the competitive “winning” aspect of the game and focuses on teaching fundamentals.
