After Completion of the camp your Lil Slugger will have improvements in the following areas:

 

 

Hitting – Players will be able to position themselves at the tee, with a proper stance, without assistance from a coach, and will be able to consistently make contact with the ball. This will also incorporate hip rotation for a more powerful swing.

Fielding – Players will be introduced to making time pressured fielding plays, with a focus to make a quick play while using good fundamentals. Players will also begin to work on catching balls in the air.

Throwing – Players will automatically resort to an overhand throw, and will have increased accuracy when throwing to a target. Incorporating a “crow hop” and discourage running with the ball.

Base Running and Recognition – By the end of the session, players should know and be able to identify the bases. A significant area of focus is gaining an understanding to stop at the bases after a play has been made.

Attentiveness and Game Awareness – Introduction of more advanced concepts and put more focus on teaching rather than entertaining.
