Finding Sports Camps for Boys
There are sports camps for most sports. You won’t have a problem finding a camp for baseball, basketball, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, volleyball, or tennis. Camps for these sports can be general skills or specific position or skill-set camps. You’ll find there are specialized camps for kickers, quarterbacks, pitchers, goalies, forwards, and others. Whether you should choose a general skills camp or a focused camp depends on your skill level, age, and interest in college-level play.
Serious high school juniors and seniors should consider attending one or more recruiting camps. Colleges and universities host camps for scouting for their own programs called prospect camps. Some national organizations put their focus on a broader range of scouts and recruiters. These are called showcase camps and can be a great way for athletes to generate interest at several schools. This can give the athlete lots of choices, which can lead to better deals for scholarships.
Ideally, a serious athlete will attend general skills camps, focused skills camps and recruiting camps during their high school career, increasing their skills and generating recruiting interest. Private lessons are another way to augment your study and practice, and work well in conjunction with camps of all types.
