This Nationally renowned camp is geared towards the development of catchers, both BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL, at all skill levels. Each year we host over 200 catchers from all over the world, including 48 of the 50 states, Australia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Canada.
The camp covers every aspect of the catching position including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (arm motion and mechanics on throws to the bases), all fielding skills and proper stretching and conditioning. Each catcher will be held to a standard that parallels their skill level.
Coach Jay Weaver and his staff (We maintain a less than a 5:1 student to instructor ratio at our Summer Camps!) will have the ability to challenge the older catchers throughout the week with higher velocities.
Due to the growth of the program, and our desire to deliver an unparalleled experience for our students, we will be running this year's Summer Camp program in a new venue! We have certainly enjoyed running our camp at Lions' Field in Hudson, NH for the last 16 years, and as many memories as we have made there, as much history as we have there, it is time to take this Nationally renowned camp to the next level.
We will be running this year's camps at Gill Stadium in Manchester, NH. It is professional baseball's second oldest ballpark (next to Fenway Park) and a great deal of baseball history has been made there over the years. Hall of Fame catcher Roy Campanella of the Brooklyn Dodgers once played there as a member of the Nashua Dodgers! (the Brooklyn Dodgers New England Baseball League affiliate)
If you have a catcher in the family and are looking for some elite position specific instruction then The Catching Camp Summer Camp program is for you!
