About Spalding Baseball Camp

Hitting Camps
The half-day Spalding Baseball Hitting Camp is an instructional setting focused on helping players develop proper swing mechanics and a sound offensive hitting approach. We will work on all phases of the swing with different drills ranging from body movement drills to on-field batting practice. Centered around lots of reps, this camp will provide the opportunity for players to take their offensive game to the next level! 

Youth Camp
The full-day Spalding Baseball Youth Camp is an opportunity for players to improve their current skills and develop new skills in a positive, fun environment. Campers receive daily instruction in all phases of the game from coaches with the single goal of helping them improve and enhance their love of baseball. A typical day of camp includes instruction in hitting, fielding, throwing, baserunning, pitching, and a daily baseball game for live reps. Campers will also participate in an activity designed to promote fun with a purpose like “slip and slide” to learn proper sliding technique, team handball to encourage teamwork, or a water balloon toss to focus on hand/eye coordination.

Infielders Camp
The half-day Spalding Infielders Camp is a great opportunity for players to develop their defensive game in an instructional setting. This camp focuses on infield play and will include drills, games, and development in throwing, footwork, hand/eye coordination, positioning, and the mentality of a great infielder! This camp is not only great for young players learning the fundamentals, but also for the competitive player looking to develop into a high-caliber infielder. 

Middle School/Prospect Camp
The Middle School Prospect Camp provides players the opportunity to work with the Spalding Coaching Staff, as well as current and former players, to learn how to play like a Cav! This camp will provide high-level instruction in all areas of the game including hitting, defense (position-specific stations offered daily), pitching, and baserunning. Games will be played daily to provide a competitive environment for live reps and the opportunity to to show off your skillset. This camp is a great opportunity to experience the expectations and caliber of play for future high school baseball players.
