About Spalding Baseball Camp

Hitting Camp
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 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.
