CAMP GOALS: The instruction will emphasize the understanding and execution of proper hitting fundamentals in a simplistic form. A variety of aspects of the offensive game will be covered including swing fundamentals, bunting fundamentals, and other areas of the game. Proper drill-work will be shared over the two-day period. Campers will have their swings videoed and analyzed at camp for immediate feedback by our staff. Our camp will differentiate instruction based on skill and grade level by offering two different camp formats running simultaneously on our baseball and softball facilities. The younger ages (grades 2-6) will be on our softball facility, while our older ages (grades 7-12) will be utilizing our baseball facilities.
FACILITIES: The North Pitt High School baseball (grades 7-12) and softball facility (grades 2-6) will be used for this camp. The baseball field was named “Field of the Year” in 2014 and 2019 by the NCBCA. The facility also features 4 outdoor cages, an indoor batting facility, two turfed soft toss/tee drill areas, a bunting area, and a full size practice field. NPHS gym, auxiliary gym, and other location gyms and facilities are available in case of inclement weather.
