Prospect Camp Carolinas #2| August 8th
The Diamond Direction Prospects Select Camp is designed to showcase your skills to a selection of DI, DII and DIII coaches. We will be allowing 125 maximum participates to attend this camp. Out of the 125 total participates allowed in this camp; we will be limited by position and graduation year. YOU choose if you want to showcase being a pitcher, catcher, or defensive athlete when your team rotates to primary position or defense. You can move around when you rotate to situational defense. The athletes will rotate through fields working on defensive footwork, skills, and receiving a lot of reps to show their defensive capabilities, offensive skills and mechanics, speed and baserunning skills, and pitchers/catchers will get to rotate through and show their strengths as well. This camp will also have live game play to showcase your skills in a game environment. This camp will leave your athlete tired and well watched from our incredible array of coaches present. Limited teaching will occur in this camp format, as we want your athlete to get a ton of reps in while showcasing their strengths!
