The Camp & The Showcase:
Junior Day is ONLY for 2013 and 2014 high school graduates. This event is designed solely for players who just finished their junior year (2013 grads) or are just beginning their junior year (2014 grads). The event is for those players who are focused on becoming collegiate student-athletes. The camp will feature games, a pro style workout with radar gun evaluations, 60 yard dash and instruction from active college coaches from various levels of college baseball. The camp is open to all 2013 & 2014 high school graduates and is strictly limited to the first 64 players players who complete their registration. The camp will remain in compliance with all NCAA rules.
Each players will receive a written evaluation from the different levels of college baseball represented at the camp. Coaches will evaluate each player based on their experiences at their level of college baseball. This will allow each participating baseball player the opportunity to get a much clearer idea of where their skills may fit at the college level.
Why is it a camp and a showcase?
Well, because it's the best of both worlds. Players want to showcase their skills to coaches but they should also want to learn from the coaches. Coaches want to evaluate players and their skills so they can teach them appropriately, just like they do with their own players. Coaches also want to see how players react to new instruction, new techniques and how they socialize with peers and other coaches.
JUNIOR DAY IS RUN BY CURRENT COLLEGE COACHES
The College Baseball Education Seminar:
The College Baseball Education Seminar is not only for the baseball player but also for his parents/family. The seminar will be held on the evening of the first day of camp. The seminar will last approximately two hours and will cover many topics including: The NCAA Recruiting Rules, How to Promote Yourself, What Coaches Look For, The Best Way to Make a Video, What to Expect Playing College Baseball and How to Talk to College Coaches. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will come out of the event having a much better idea of What College Baseball is All About.
