Diamond Hawk Showcase Camp
Diamond Hawk Showcase Camp
Huntingdon College will be hosting their annual Diamond Hawk Showcase Camp on Saturday November 2nd, 2019. The showcase camp is constructed to target all interested Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. This camp will give all prospective players the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities in front of numerous Junior College, NAIA, and NCAA coaches. This event will allow participates to also receive collegiate coaching instruction throughout the day. It will be an all day camp filled with demonstrations on arm strength, fielding, offensive production and power. This workout will be more individualized for each participant guaranteeing more repetitions during the camp sessions as well as numerous opportunities to demonstrate skills during the multiple games. Instruction will be given on each component of the game: infield, outfield, catching, hitting, and pitching. Previous players from this camp have gone on to play at numerous colleges across the southeast. Also, time will be allotted for parents to meet and ask questions to the different collegiate coaches. Unfortunately, registration will be cut off after the first 80 players to sign up. This is a great opportunity for all players who are looking to play college baseball to attend. Whether you’re a graduating senior who is still uncommitted or you are an underclassmen who is trying to get onto college coaches “follow list”, this is a great event to showcase your abilities.
