2016 Diamond Dog Baseball Camp

Dates - June 14th and June 16th
Cost - $40 per day
Time - 9:00am - 4:00pm

Camp Information
Both days of camp will be similar and will include hitting drills, stations, and situations. Also, throwing and fielding mechanics as well as specific defensive positions (pitchers, catchers, infielders, and outfielders) will be emphasized. In addition, this year there will be a new feature as there will be a session emphasizing athleticism, strength, and agility for young players. As for the defensive positions, participants will be able to rotate to different defensive positions to learn more than one. In the afternoon, there will be game situations and competitions toward the end of the day as time allows.
Diamond Dog camp will take place on the Gardner-Webb campus at John Henry Moss Stadium/Bill Masters Field. Gatorade will be provided for participants at no cost.

Staff will include Gardner-Webb coaches and local high school and middle school coaches.

There is no pre-registration form or pre-payment necessary for camp this year. However, you must notify us by email (rstroupe@gardner-webb.edu) or by phone (704-406-4421) in advance in order to participate. Please indicate name and grade completed and the dates you are planning to attend. CAMPERS WILL BE DIVIDED INTO AGE APPROPRIATE GROUPS DURING CAMP. For those who are in middle school, you will mainly be with other players your age. Campers should bring baseball shoes as well as flat turf shoes or tennis shoes, for use in the indoor batting cages. Bring a glove and a hat and wear what you would normally wear for a baseball game. If you bring a bat, please have it clearly marked with your name on it to prevent confusion. Water will be available but campers are welcomed to bring water bottles and Gatorade, etc. if they wish.
