Siena Baseball will be offering a pair of camps for aspiring baseball players this winter. The Saints are set to hold a Youth Instructional Camp for boys in Grades 1-8 on Jan. 20, and a High School Prospect Skills Camp for boys in Grades 9-12 on Feb. 3.
Siena Baseball Winter Camps teach aspiring players how to play baseball the "Siena Way." The camps will be held at Siena College's Marcelle Athletic Complex, and campers should bring with them turf/athletic shoes, glove, bat, catcher's gear (if needed), baseball pants (preferred), and a t-shirt. Cost to attend the Youth Instructional Camp is $50, while the High School Prospect Camp is $120 for two-way players, and $80 for just position players or pitchers.
The Youth Instructional Camp on Saturday, Jan. 20 begins with sign-in and registration from 12:30-1 p.m., and ends with pickup between 4-4:15 p.m. The camp covers the basics in all aspects of play - fielding, throwing, pitching, hitting, and base running. Campers will learn mental, physical, and mechanical techniques to improve their game, and how to work on these skills when they practice on their own.
The High School Prospect Skills Camp on Saturday, Feb. 3 begins with sign-in and registration from 8:30-9 a.m., and concludes at 1 p.m. The camp gives players the opportunity to learn the fundamental philosophies and techniques of the game used by the Siena Baseball program. Siena College coaches, with the assistance of current players, will teach these mental, physical, and mechanical techniques at camp.
