LEGENDS HITTING CAMP: (Ages 12-15) 
Utilizing our state of the art batting cage facility, combined with hands-on instruction from professional hitting coaches, hitters can expect to improve their swings while increasing their bat speed and exit velocity.  Each day will begin with a 20-minute instruction session.  Following the instruction session, campers will be placed into small groups, and they will then rotate through hitting circuits which address different parts of the swing.  Coaches instruct on all aspects of building an efficient, powerful swing, including stance/setup, lower body rotation and sequencing, hand path, contact points, pitch recognition, approach and off-speed hitting.  Campers can expect to get over 150 quality swings each day.  The pace of this camp is quick and intensive, with very little standing around time.  We have a ratio of 1 coach for every 4 participants.
 
LEGENDS DEFENSIVE CAMP: (Ages 12-15) 
Open to CATCHERS, INFIELDERS, and OUTFIELDERS, the Defensive Camp is a 3-day clinic with detailed instruction on many of the most  important aspects of defense.  Utilizing the Legends Fungoman Automated Practice Machine, this camp will be intense, and your child will get tons of quality repetitions.  This offering is for the serious baseball player who is driven to learn specific details of his position, in order to compete at the high school level and beyond.

Special emphasis will be given to reinforcing proper pitching and arm mechanices, arm care, stretching, and arm strength development are reinforced.  The first day we will ease into things so that we do not have any sore arms.  in order to teach the boys to compete on the mound, we will be placing them in fun, game-like scenarios, so they learn how to attack hitters.  Ratio is 1 coach for every 6 pitchers.
