2013 Catching Instructional Camp
We will be hosting a one-day, three-hour Catching Instructional Camp for catcher's looking to improve their defensive skills in all areas of the game. Good catching is at a premium and good catching instruction is even harder to find. You will get valuable catching tips and drills you can take with you the rest of your career. You will also have a chance to enhance your skills with other catchers your age.
Ages 8 - High School Seniors

(Please Arrive by 8:30 am for Check-In)
$60 (Online Registration)
$70 (Walk-Ups on the Day of Camp)
UC-San Diego is one of the few programs in the country with the luxury of having three former catchers on the coaching staff, all from different areas in the country. Assistant coach Cory Burleson was a four-year starting catcher at the University of Nebraska. Assistant coaches Rob Avila and Jonathan Johnston caught in professional baseball for the Phillies and A's organizations after superb college careers at Master's College and the Naval Academy. Catchers from our current team will also be on the camp staff. Our catchers posted some of the best numbers in our conference a year ago, and we expect more of the same in the upcoming season.
If you have your own catching gear, or access to gear, please bring it with you. All participants will be required to wear a protective cup at all times during the camp.
