The Minnesota Baseball Instructional School Catching Academy is a 4 week camp (one day per week) that will focus on the fundamentals of playing the catcher position. This will be an all-encompassing catching camp that will cover every aspect of the position including proper throwing technique, receiving stances, receiving glove work, blocking, and agility drills. Campers will be placed in small groups (no larger than 4-5 per group) on Wednesday nights and camp times will be 6:00, 7:00, or 8:00 PM depending on your age group. Gopher Baseball Programs are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level, and/or gender.
