The Valparaiso University baseball program has announced dates for its annual Youth Camp, which will take place from July 17-19 at Emory G. Bauer Field.
The camp will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m. each day. The camp is open to ages 6-13. The cost is $235 to attend all three days.
Early drop off and late pick up (8 a.m. and 4 p.m.) is available to help accommodate work schedules for parents for an additional fee ($300 for camp and early drop off/ late pick up accommodation).
All campers will be given a Valpo Baseball Camp T-Shirt. Campers will be responsible for packing their own lunch to eat during the daily lunch break from noon to 12:30 p.m. Concessions will also be available at that time.
Players will be broken into age-appropriate groups for the morning portion of the camp in which they will participate in fundamental instruction on pitching, hitting, defense and baserunning. After lunch, player will participate in team-conception instruction (run downs, bunt defense, pop-fly communication) before applying said instruction in a game-type setting.
The camp will be run by the Valparaiso University baseball staff as well as local high school coaches, former Valpo baseball players and other baseball professionals.
