Kersten’s Christmas Camps ($100 per athlete)
We are proud to present two different hitting camps for baseball players over Christmas Break led by former D-I and professional hitter, Chris Kersten. One camp is for 5th through 8th graders with another camp for high schoolers.
The camp for 5th – 8th graders will be December 30th through January 1st. We are offering two timeslots for you to choose from – the first is from 1-3pm and the second is from 4-6pm.
The camp for high schoolers will be January 1st – 3rd. On January 1st, the camp will run from 10am-noon and on January 2nd and 3rd it will run from 6-8pm.
These camps will be limited in size to provide ample opportunity for specialized instruction that will be customized to enhance each camper’s hitting ability. The camps will feature both the mechanical and mental side of hitting. Each player will be provided video analysis of their swing, plus ‘take away’ instruction to give them customized instruction heading into Spring practices. With space limited, we expect these camps to fill up quickly.
3rd & 4th Grader’s Christmas Camp ($75 per athlete)
For the younger ballplayer in the house, we are offering a 3-day skills camp from January 2nd to January 4th. Each session will run from 3pm – 5pm.
Chapman HS Head Baseball Coach, Judd Liebau, and his staff of players will lead the camp and will cover hitting, fielding and throwing instruction. The camp is for boys in 3rd and 4th grades and will be a lighthearted camp with fun as the focus, while building a strong fundamental foundation for the campers to build on as they develop. Space is limited and, given the response to previous camps for this age group, slots will fill fast. Sign up early to assure a spot.
Webster’s Winter Workout ($75 per athlete)
CHS Head Softball Coach, Eilleen Webster, will be conducting a softball mini-camp for girls currently in 5th through 9th grade. The camp will run from 11am-1pm on January 2nd – 4th.
The camp will cover all aspects of hitting including bunting and slap-hitting, as well as throwing and fielding technique and mechanics. Coach Webster and her staff of players will demonstrate and implement many of the drills that CHS uses for game preparation.
This is an excellent opportunity to dust off the bats and gloves and get some great instruction to prepare your young softball player for the coming season. Don’t miss this great opportunity to hone your daughter’s softball skills.
Pitching Clinics ($25 per session or a 5-pack for $95)
These small group pitching sessions are for boys 10-14 years of age. The sessions will be split into two levels:
Intro Level (Boys 10-12 years of age) – There will be two sessions offered on Tuesdays – one from 4:00 – 4:45pm and another from 5:00-5:45pm. There is one session offered on Thursdays from 4:00 – 4:45pm.
Advanced Level (Boys 12-14 years of age) – Saturdays from 4:00 – 4:45pm.
These 45 minutes sessions will focus on proper arm care and velocity development. Drills will be implemented to assist in young pitchers’ bodies becoming accustomed to the proper throwing mechanics that come with the high stress action of pitching a baseball. We will also work live off a flat ground and the mount as we develop proper throwing mechanics.
Each session is limited to 4 athletes in order to provide ample focus on, and instruction to, the participants. To purchase a 5-pack, after you log in to your DK account, you will click on the “Packages” tab at the top left-hand side of the page. Once you have purchased your 5-pack package, you can then use the camp credits to sign up for a particular session. It will give you the option to use your credits at checkout.
Off-Season Arm Development Programs ($200 per athlete)
Beginning in October 2019 and running through the first day of high school baseball practice, we will be administering an arm care and development program using many of the drills, exercises and programming utilized by today’s leading arm development experts, particularly Driveline Baseball. The off-season programming will be split into two sessions, both being 40 sessions lasting about one hour each. The program will typically require two to three sessions per week. The first program will run from October through late December and will consist of an on-ramping phase followed by a strategic velocity development training regimen. The second phase we offer, which can be done without completing the first phase, is designed to get our young pitchers ready for the grind of the upcoming baseball season. It will start the week after Christmas and run right up to the first day of high school baseball practice. In all, there are 80 sessions available and they are offered at 6:30am and 6:30pm. The cost of each 40-session program is $200. This works out to $5/session.
Saturday Morning Youth Mini-Camps
Every other Saturday from September 14 and running through December 21 from 10:00am to Noon, we will conduct baseball/softball skills mini-camps that will provide development opportunities for hitting, fielding, and throwing. Again, a multi-station approach will be used to provide for a fast-paced and fun learning environment. We will strive to keep the instructor to athlete ratio at 6:1 for these mini-camps, as well. The cost for the mini-camps is $20/session. You have the option to purchase a 5-pack for $60, which saves you 40%. You can sign up for as many or few of these sessions as you like. To sign up, log in to your DK account and click on the “Sign Up for Camp/Clinic” button in the middle of the page. To purchase a 5-pack, after you log in to your DK account, you will click on the “Packages” tab at the top left of the page. Once you have purchased your 5-pack package, you can then use the camp credits to sign up for a particular session. It will give you the option to use your credits at checkout.
