Now offering "Early Bird Registration" of $200 per week.
The Perfect Pitch and Swing Baseball Camp provides summer instruction for children age 8-12* at V.E. Macy Park, 900 Saw MIll River Road, Ardsley, NY. Children will attend a full-day program from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Perfect Pitch and Swing Baseball Camp utilizes unique and innovative training methods that combine traditional baseball skill development with disciplines from other sports. Campers increase their knowledge of the game and develop their skills at various teaching stations, and use their new skills in game situations.
The key to the Perfect Pitch and Swing program is in its teaching approach: allowing the body to work effectively and in a biomechanically sound way. The program will include:
• Drills and programs that have been proven effective through years of training and analysis
• Hitting instruction focusing on lower body use that allows averagesize players to be as powerful as bigger players
• Proper footwork and handwork in fielding
• Focus on lower body for strength and injury prevention in throwing/pitching
• Innovative and progressive teaching methods
• Incorporating training methods from other sports like golf and martial arts
• Video Evaluation and analysis
We will utilize additional instructors/counselors such as ex-professional players, school coaches and college and high school players.
