Who Should Attend Summer School?

Summer School is open to any and all pitchers and catchers who want to improve their physical skills and mindset!

Athletes will be put into small groups with others of a similar age and/or skill level so that instruction can be provided for pitchers/catchers that are beginners, intermediate or advanced!

The athlete to instructor ratio will be 8/1 or lower so that each pitcher and catcher will get feedback specific to her needs from coaches during camp!
