Junior Day is designed for 2018 and 2019 high school graduates. This event is designed for players who just finished their junior year (2018 grads) or are just beginning their junior year (2019 grads). The event is for those players who are focused on becoming college baseball student-athletes. The camp will feature quality instruction from active college coaches in uniform, evaluations provided by the coaching staff through the instructional process, a Discussion on College Athletics for both players and parents. The camp is open to all 2018 and 2019 high school graduates and is restricted in enrollment. Players who graduate high school in 2020 are eligible to register but must understand the prospect event is designed for the older players. The player-to-coach ratio will not exceed 8:1. The camp is in compliance with all NCAA rules.

  • The Pitching / Catching Session will run from 8:00 AM until 11:00 AM.
  • The Infield / Outfield Session will run from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
  • The Hitting Session will run from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

All campers and their parents from every session should attend the Discussion on College Athletics held at 11:00 AM.

Each Session will consist of instruction in the following areas; skill work, strength work, mental training, and education about the recruitment process. All skill work is in small groups and one-on-one and will be age specific. The cost of the camp will be $175 for one session, $275 for two sessions or $325 for three sessions. Space is limited. These sessions are expected to fill quickly.

Our goal for a player-to-coach ratio is 6:1 but will not exceed 8:1.

ALL PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE

  • Instruction from all coaches attending the event.
  • Opportunities to ask questions about their skills and get to know the college coaches.
  • One-on-one and small group instruction.
  • An open discussion about the NCAA recruiting process, rules, and regulations (parents are encouraged to either stay or come back for this segment. Questions are encouraged as to help answer questions and bust myths about the recruiting process).

EVALUATION
Each player will receive verbal feedback from the different levels of college baseball represented at the camp. Coaches will evaluate each player based on their experiences at their level of college baseball and give feedback when appropriate. This will allow each participating baseball player the opportunity to get a much clearer idea of where their skills may fit at the college level. Because we want full interaction between coaches and players we do not provide written evaluations. We ask our staff to be fully engaged in the teaching and evaluating process and not be lost in a form.  For this reason, we highly encourage players to ask questions of the staff and obtain any and all information they would like to know. The evaluation is designed to be informative but not restrictive. Each Junior Day Regional can differ slightly when it comes to the feedback given but generally speaking players will be evaluated in areas of the game such as: arm speed (velocity), ball exit speed off of bat, 60 yard dash, home to first base, and throwing accuracy. Players will also be instructed in improving the skills areas that they are having evaluated. Through dialogue with the coach’s players will be provided with information that they can use to compare and contrast where they stand with current college baseball players.

WHY IS IT A CAMP AND A SHOWCASE?
Well, because it's the best of both worlds. Players want to showcase their skills to coaches but they should also want to learn from the coaches. Coaches want to evaluate players and their skills so they can teach them appropriately, just like they do with their own players. Coaches also want to see how players react to new instruction, new techniques and how they socialize with peers and other coaches.

THE COLLEGE COACHES AT JUNIOR DAY ARE ON THE FIELD ALL DAY
JUST LIKE THEY ARE FOR THEIR OWN PRACTICES & GAMES

DISCUSSION ON COLLEGE ATHLETICS
The College Athletics Education Seminar will be held during camp and is for all members of the family. The seminar will last approximately a 45-60 minutes. The discussion will cover topics like: The NCAA Recruiting Rules, How to Promote Yourself, What Coaches Look For, The Best Way to Make a Video, What to Expect Playing College Athletics and How to Talk to College Coaches. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will come out of the event having a much better idea of What College Athletics is All About. Parents and players are encouraged to ask questions during the discussion.

JUNIOR DAY IS RUN BY CURRENT COLLEGE COACHES
