Elite Catching Camp #2 Summer 2023 | NC Baseball Academy
The NC Baseball Academy Elite Catching Camps are position specific camps that are highly instructional and are designed to enhance and accelerate the catcher’s knowledge and overall skill level for ages 8-18. 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 drill work and quality reps will take your skills to the next level.
The 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 multiple coaches as they rotate around our camp work stations working on the finer points of catching..
