Winter Baseball Camp at Mountain View Recreation

October 23, 2014


This winter, Mountain View Recreation is offering a Winter Baseball Training Camp.  The camp will begin on November 1st and run through the winter up to the start of the Spring Baseball season.  The goal of the camp is to help children learn proper form and techniques in throwing, batting and fielding in baseball.  The camp will be split into two age groups.  The first group will be for children that are now playing or will be playing machine pitch baseball in the coming spring.  The second group will be for kid pitch players.  Both groups will focus on the fundamentals of baseball and proper technique.  The older group will also include focus on pitching, catching, stealing bases, and sharpening the core skills.


 The camp is offered at no cost to players.



Age Groups/Camp Dates



Machine Pitch (Age 7-8)


Sundays from 2:00 - 3:30 PM beginning on November 2, 2014



Kid Pitch (Age 9-12)


Saturdays from 1:00 - 2:30 PM beginning on November 1, 2014




By the end of this camp, the expectation is that the boys will be coming into the spring baseball assessment ready to play and with an improved skill set and knowledge of the game.  It is very hard to get boys ready to play when there are so many on a team and so little time to get them ready for games.  Hopefully, this offseason camp can help teach where in the regular season time is limited.


Todd Jenkins will be heading up the machine pitch group and Andrew Lail will head up the kid pitch group. 



The camp will try to work around the winter sports so that everyone can take advantage of the camp.  If you miss a Saturday, we can work on some fundamentals on Sunday, or vice-versa.  Since it will be running for such a long span, anyone can come in at any point and we will work with them to get them up to speed.
