At Kevin Leighton Baseball Camps, the mentors of today help the players of tomorrow lay the foundation for their future fast balls and game-winning homers. Led by the coaching staff of Fordham University, the weeklong camps pair kids in 1st-9th grades with D-I coaches and players, who impart fundamentals and skills through pro-grade drills. Read on to see what an average day at camp looks like:
- Stretches and throwing mechanics: Campers keep muscles healthy and throws hot with warm-ups designed to stretch muscles and ensure proper throwing mechanics.
- Station work: Players take batting practice, learn the ins and outs of positions, and practice base-running before a recap with coaches.
- Lunch: Baseball is hungry work.
- Rule of the Day: Before afternoon station work, coaches impart wisdom and life lessons through motivational speeches tied to the game itself.
- Games: The highlight of any camp day, practice games allow campers to show off their new-found skills in friendly competitions with their fellow players.
