Summer Baseball Camps
The Minnesota Baseball Instructional School Summer Camps are multiple day camps designed to teach the fundamentals of the game of baseball. Each camp will be adequately staffed by current Golden Gopher coaching staff members, players, and some of the finest high school coaches in the Minneapolis area. Our goal with each camp is for every player to walk away with a renewed sense of energy for the game of baseball.

This is an intensive learning experience for the camper that has a sincere desire to concentrate on developing their skills as a pitcher, catcher, and hitter. Campers will be instructed on the fundamentals that relate to being a pitcher or catcher, with extensive teaching and training on the skill of hitting. Examples of some areas to be covered: Pitchers: mechanics, grips, drills to improve delivery, pick-offs, pitch selection and developing a game plan, a daily throwing routine and the use of the bullpen between starts. Catchers: stance, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding, tags, pop-ups and developing a relationship with the pitching staff. Camp runs from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Wednesday with lunch served from 11:45-12:45 in the fresh food cafeteria located in the 17th Avenue Dormitory.

Staff:
Our instructional staff is the very best in the country. In addition to the coaches from the University of Minnesota baseball program we have coaches representing the finest high school and college programs in the nation. Each week we will have a staff of 25›35 coaches to provide an extraordinary level of instruction. Frequently, the coach/player ratio is 1 coach for every 8 players. A certified athletic trainer will also be on hand at all times. Our camps are open to all ability levels.
