We are very excited to announce that THE NEW ENGLAND CATCHING CAMP will be returning to the Lone Star State! We have partnered with the Texas Patriots organization and The Competitive Edge Sports indoor training center to conduct a catching camp and clinics Dec 15th–16th 2012 at the Patriots’ field located at 29327 South Plum Creek Dr. Spring, TX 77386 and the Competitive Edge facility located at 2733 Rayford Rd. Spring, TX. Jay and Kevin Weaver, the Director and Senior Instructor of the camp, will conduct clinics, for both baseball and fast pitch softball, ages 8-18.
Because of the incredible response we received last year, we will be offering a couple 2-day, 3-session (2-hrs each session) camps this year! One for the younger catchers and another for the older catchers. The 6-hour camps will be cumulative and will cover every aspect of the catching position including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (arm motion and mechanics on throws to the bases) and all fielding skills. Each catcher will be held to a standard that parallels their skill level. Coach Jay Weaver and his staff will have the ability to challenge the older catchers throughout the weekend with higher velocities (85+ MPH for the guys, 65+ MPH out of a windmill for the girls).
The 2.5-hour clinics on Saturday and Sunday will consist of instruction on all aspects of catching skills including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (mostly mechanics on throws to the bases) and some fielding skills.
