We are excited to announce that THE NEW ENGLAND CATCHING CAMP will be returning to the Lone Star State once again this year! We have partnered with the Backyard Dugout indoor training center, located at 2400 Justin Rd. Highland Village, TX, to conduct a catching camp and clinics Feb 23rd-24th 2013.
Jay and Kevin Weaver, the Director and Senior Instructor of the camp, will conduct clinics, for both baseball and fast pitch softball, ages 8-18. Because of the incredible response we received last year, we will again be offering a two-day, 3-session (two-hours each session) camp!
The 6-hour camp will be cumulative and will cover every aspect of the catching position including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (arm motion and mechanics on throws to the bases) and all fielding skills. Each catcher will be held to a standard that parallels their skill level and catchers will be separated by age group when going through drills. Coach Jay Weaver and his staff will have the ability to challenge the older catchers throughout the weekend with higher velocities (85+ MPH for the guys, 60+ MPH out of a windmill for the girls).
