Elite Catching Camp at NC Baseball Academy is a position specific camp that is highly instructional and is designed to enhance and accelerate the catcher’s knowledge and overall skill level for ages 9-18. Learn all the proper mechanics and techniques of Receiving, Blocking, Footwork and Throwing to make yourself an elite catcher. Video analysis will help each catcher see what their strengths and weaknesses are at arguably the most important position on the field of play. Daily advanced drill work and quality reps will take your skills to the next level. The Elite Catching Camp has been attended by many elite  young catchers over the years and most notably 1st round draft pick Patrick Bailey of the SF Giants.

Elite Catching Camp staff is headlined by NC Baseball Academy Assistant Director Jeff Guerrie and a supporting cast of college level players. The Elite Catching Camp is structured to allow each camper time with a multitude of coaches as they rotate around our camp work stations working on the finer points of catching.

Camp begins at 9:00 am and concludes at 12:00 each day except for the All Day Summer Camp which ends at 3:00 each day. Tuition includes all instruction and a camp tee shirt.
