BYU Baseball Camps in Utah
Brigham Young University offers two baseball camps in Utah, a high school camp for players aged 15 to 18 and a skills camp for players aged 9 to 14. There will be two sessions for each camp.
The baseball skills camp is for players at a beginning or intermediate level. Here youâ€™ll get instruction from BYU Cougars coach John Vance, professional guest coaches and current members of the Cougars team. Youâ€™ll learn the fundamentals of batting stance, hitting and bunting; base running, speed development and sliding; pitching and throwing mechanics; fielding, pickoffs, tags, pivoting, cutoffs, relays, and double plays.
The high school camp, for more advanced players, will not only help you reach your highest potential in terms of skills, but will also give you an opportunity to showcase your abilities in front of the BYU coaching staff. Youâ€™ll use the BYU equipment, such as pitching machines and batting stations, and will receive a video analysis to help you pinpoint the skills you need to work on.
