Winter Catching Camp

NLB offers a catching camp grouped by age. Younger plays (12 and under) are separated from the older players (13 and up). At the catching camp players can expect to be coached and drilled on many skills. Foremost will be receiving, blocking, throwing, and the footwork that goes with it. NLB has also added a classroom component to the program this year for their older players that will include: pitch calling, film of their practice sessions, video on proper technique, discussions on game situations, and other aspects of the game.

Frequently Asked Questions

---How many sessions per week is this?

It is two sessions per week. Twenty sessions total. Parents choose a single weeknight option and everyone goes to their age groups Saturday morning session.

---Has anything changed this year from last?

NLB has added a second session on Wednesday nights to further help separate by age. NLB has also added a classroom component for their older players. We feel this is needed and will help many of our catchers realize the importance of the position and the potential they have much quicker.

---How flexible is it for a makeup if I need to miss a session?

We are typically very flexible with makeups. It is hard to makeup the Saturday session but if you need to miss a Monday or a Wednesday we should be able to accommodate that as long as you communicate beforehand.

---If Saturdays don't work can I just go to the two weeknight sessions?

This may be worked out by arrangement but the player would be missing the throwing portion of the program (we throw on Saturdays when we have the whole facility for catchers). The older players would also miss the classroom portion which we are stressing a very strong addition to the program. We would recommend this only be in the case of missing a weekend or two as opposed to your whole catching camp experience.
