The NC Baseball Academy Elite Summer Hitting Camps are position specific and all about HITTING! The Hitting Camps are Fun, Highly Instructional and designed to teach you all the common characteristics of the Major League Swing! The Elite Hitting Camps are for all skill levels and ages 8-18.

Live Arm Swings, along with advanced drill work, allow campers to work on all aspects of their swing plus learn a great hitting approach and situational hitting. Both Hitting Camps will feature video analysis and a side-by-side comparison with one of today’s top Major League Hitters.
