Elite Baseball Academy

Premier Midwest Catchers Camp

Presented by the Elite Baseball Academy - Hosted by the Minnetonka Skippers Baseball Program
Academy Director: Darin Everson - Colorado Rockies, 20 Years in Pro Baseball & Ada, MN Native

The ELITE BASEBALL ACADEMY is proud to offer this instructional opportunity for catchers who are looking to lift their skills to the next level as they are trying to reach their potential.  This unique camp will incorporate on-site video analysis of professional catchers, classroom instructional time, baseball specific training and the newest concepts that apply to all of our skill progressions.  This is one of the few camps in the country that will focus 100% on catching and improving the skills of the leader on the baseball field.  Campers can expect specific progressions on proper throwing mechanics, blocking, receiving, pitch calling, fielding, plays at the plate, pop ups, leadership, communication and the relationship with the pitcher.  Another unique element that elevates this camp is that each camper will receive a detailed written evaluation directly from Everson sent via email and two video clips of their throwing action sent their email address.  Camp Option:  Online Video Throwing Lesson Option with video captured from the camp – Take advantage of $25 off regular “Voice-Over Level” Video Lesson.  Our voice-over capability allows Everson to speak to you through your computer while going through your throwing mechanics.  Once completed, this online video lesson is sent to your email address and then can be saved on your computer.  Each catcher will receive informational handouts sent to their email as well as T-shirt with their registration.

We will only accept the first 45 registrations for this unique CATCHER-ONLY camp!

Every catcher MUST BRING THEIR OWN GEAR (mask, chest protector, shin guards, catchers mitt and protective cup).  The campers will be separated by grade when working with other catchers. Bring your leadership attitude and your work ethic.
