Norfolk State University will hold three summer baseball camps. The first camp will run from June 29-July 2 and the second from July 20-23. Both are open to boys and girls ages 6-12 and cost $125 per camp, or $220 total if you register for both.
The youth camps will run from 9 a.m. to noon daily and include base running and throwing instruction plus position-specific drills and games based on age groups. NSU baseball coaches, current and former Spartan players and local high school coaches will serve as the camp clinicians. A free campus tour will also be offered following the last day of each camp for those interested.
The third and final camp of the summer is the High School and Junior College Showcase on Aug. 14-15, open to rising ninth through 12th graders and all current junior college players. The showcase runs from 5:30-9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14 and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15.
Day 1 will consist of a pro-style workout scouting combine. Each individual will have an opportunity to run the 60-yard dash, participate in drills at a primary and secondary position, hit (if position is primary) and record velocities. Following the workout, there will be a 30-minute question-and-answer forum for all campers and parents with the college coaches.
Day 2 will give campers the ability to showcase their talents in a game setting. Each camper will be assigned a team and a game time where they will showcase their ability in their primary position as a priority. After each team completes their game, the coaches will provide them with an individual evaluation.
The cost for the showcase is $100 if registered by Aug. 1, or $125 after Aug. 1. The cost includes a T-shirt and individual written evaluation.
