FEATURING

Junior Day is designed for high school baseball players that want to work directly with college coaches in a on field environment. The event is for those players who are focused on becoming college baseball student-athletes or want to learn more about that process. The camp will feature quality instruction from active college coaches in uniform, evaluations provided by the coaching staff through the instructional process, and a Discussion on College Athletics for both players and parents. The Junior Day Prospect Camp and Showcase will feature measurements and instruction on the latest metrics in baseball such as exit bat velocity, throwing velocity, running times and others. The college coaches on site will not only provide these metrics but will also instruct the campers on how to improve them. The camp is open to all high school baseball players and is restricted in enrollment. The player-to-coach ratio will not exceed 8:1. These camps are in compliance with all NCAA rules.

ALL PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE

  • Instruction from all coaches attending the event.
  • Opportunities to ask questions about their skills and get to know the college coaches.
  • One-on-one and small group instruction.
  • An open discussion about the NCAA recruiting process, rules, and regulations (parents are encouraged to either stay or come back for this segment. Questions are encouraged as to help answer questions and bust myths about the recruiting process).
  • All campers will be numbered so the coaches can identify each player.

EVALUATION
Each player will receive verbal feedback from the different levels of college baseball represented at the camp. Coaches will evaluate each player based on their experiences at their level of college baseball and give feedback when appropriate. This will allow each participating baseball player the opportunity to get a much clearer idea of where their skills may fit at the college level. Because we want full interaction between coaches and players we do not provide written evaluations. We ask our staff to be fully engaged in the teaching and evaluating process and not be lost in a form. For this reason, we highly encourage players to ask questions of the staff and obtain any and all information they would like to know. The evaluation is designed to be informative but not restrictive. Each Junior Day Regional can differ slightly when it comes to the feedback given but generally speaking players will be evaluated in areas of the game such as: arm speed (velocity), ball exit speed off of bat, 60 yard dash, home to first base, and throwing accuracy. Players will also be instructed in improving the skills areas that they are having evaluated. Through dialogue with the coach’s players will be provided with information that they can use to compare and contrast where they stand with current college baseball players.

WHY IS IT A CAMP AND A SHOWCASE?
Well, because it's the best of both worlds. Players want to showcase their skills to coaches but they should also want to learn from the coaches. Coaches want to evaluate players and their skills so they can teach them appropriately, just like they do with their own players. Coaches also want to see how players react to new instruction, new techniques and how they socialize with peers and other coaches.

THE COLLEGE COACHES AT JUNIOR DAY ARE ON THE FIELD ALL DAY
JUST LIKE THEY ARE FOR THEIR OWN PRACTICES & GAMES

DISCUSSION ON COLLEGE ATHLETICS
The College Athletics Education Seminar will be held during camp and is for all members of the family. The seminar will last approximately a 45-60 minutes. The discussion will cover topics like: The NCAA Recruiting Rules, How to Promote Yourself, What Coaches Look For, The Best Way to Make a Video, What to Expect Playing College Athletics and How to Talk to College Coaches. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will come out of the event having a much better idea of What College Athletics is All About.  Parents and players are encouraged to ask questions during the discussion.

JUNIOR DAY IS RUN BY CURRENT COLLEGE COACHES
