Registration is open for Winter Clinics

Registration for 2021 winter baseball training is OPEN!  

Several camp and training offerings begin in January of 2021, and all camps regardless of age will be led by EPHS Baseball Head Coach John Buteyn alongside his paid staff of coaches and EPHS players.  Please see each of the camp descriptions below and visit the link to register for the right camp for you!

*In 2019 and 2020, we accepted single-day walkup registrations for Intro to Pitching, 4th-5th Grade, 6th-7thGrade, and 8th-9th Grade Camps. The COVID-19 pandemic and associated precautions required by the Minnesota Department of Health and Eden Prairie Schools make this difficult to do in a safe and orderly fashion. As a result, we are currently only able to commit to admitting full-camp registrants into our camps this winter. It is possible that as plans are refined or as MDH precautions/restrictions are relaxed, that this could change, allowing for walkup participation again this year. Due to this uncertainty, you are encouraged to register as a full camp participant for any camp in which you would like to be guaranteed the opportunity to participate.

 

Intro to Pitching Camp

Purpose: This camp is specially designed for players who are two years or less into their pitching experience, and is open to 3rd-5th graders.  Instruction will focus on basic quality pitching mechanics, emphasizing and building on a pitcher’s natural strengths, improving both control and velocity, fielding the pitcher’s position, and developing the mentality of a successful pitcher.

Schedule: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Fridays from January 22 – February 26, 2021 (six 1 hour sessions) at EPHS Dome

Cost: $150.00 for full camp registration (all full-camp registrants will receive an EPHS Baseball Camps t-shirt)

 

4th - 5th Grade Camp

Purpose: Our 4th – 5th grade camp is focused on building a well-rounded, fundamental ballplayer with a complete set of skills appropriate for 4th-5th grade.  Participants will receive instruction in hitting and baserunning in addition to throwing fundamentals, infield, outfield and catcher defense.  This camp seeks to prepare participants for travel tryouts, but will also help players who are planning on playing in community leagues improve their skills.

Schedule: 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Fridays from January 22 – February 26, 2021 (six 1 hour sessions) at EPHS Dome

Cost: $150.00 for full camp registration (all full-camp registrants will receive an EPHS Baseball Camps t-shirt)

 

6th - 7th Grade Camp

Purpose: Our 6th – 7th grade camp is focused on continuing to build the player’s fundamental skill set but also to help take that skill set to the next level.  In addition to fundamental skill work at the plate, on the bases and in the field (including pitching and catching), this camp will have an increased focus on arm strength development as well as the game’s finer points as players move in to a more sophisticated level of baseball.  This camp seeks to prepare participants for travel tryouts, but will also help players who are planning on playing in community leagues improve their skills.

Schedule: 2:00-4:00 p.m. on Sundays from January 3 – February 28, 2021 (eight 2 hour sessions) at EPHS Dome

*NO CAMP on February 7 (Super Bowl Sunday)

Cost: $200 for full-camp registration (all full-camp registrants will receive an EPHS Baseball camps t-shirt)

 

High School Prep Camp

Purpose: This camp, specifically for 8th and 9th graders, is designed to prepare the athlete for participation in the EPHS Baseball program.  Age-appropriate fundamental individual skill development in every area is at the core of this camp.  However, players will also be exposed to EPHS program philosophies in higher level aspects of team baseball in areas like base running, cuts and relays, and 1st and 3rd plays.  This camp also provides an opportunity for participants to interact with closely and continue to develop further relationships with the EPHS coaching staff before entering the program in the near future.

 

Schedule: 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Sundays from January 3 – February 28, 2021 (eight 2 hour sessions) at EPHS Dome

*NO CAMP on February 7 (Super Bowl Sunday)

Cost: $200 for full-camp registration (all full-camp registrants will receive an EPHS Baseball camps t-shirt)

 

Hitting Development Camp

Overview: Our Hitting Development Camp offers 6th-9th graders an opportunity to develop swing fundamentals and offensive approaches using the help of cutting edge technology.  Participants in the Hitting Development Camp will be divided by grade level.  Each grade level will be limited to 10 participants in order to maximize instructor-to-participant ratios and provide as much individualized instruction and development as possible.

Purpose: Participants will work directly with members of the EPHS coaching staff to develop bat speed, increase frequencies of hard contact, hit more line drives, improve pitch selection, and much more.  Using the Rapsodo 2.0, which measures exit velocity, launch angle, and projected distance among other critical analytics, players will receive data every week to help measure their progress, competing weekly against themselves and alongside other participants.  Participants will work with coaches to develop an offensive approach tailored to their strengths and needs in order to become a better hitter.

Schedule: 7:00-9:00 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays from January 5 through February 25, 2021 (eight one-hour sessions in total). All sessions will be held in the cages in the EPHS wrestling room. Participants will be met by coaches at the EPHS Student Activities doors for their first session in order to be walked down to the wrestling room facility.

6th Grade: 7-8 pm on Tuesdays

7th Grade: 7-8 pm on Thursdays

8th Grade: 8-9 pm on Tuesdays

9th Grade: 8-9 pm on Thursdays

Cost: $200 for a full-camp registration.  Registration is limited to 10 participants per grade level, so register as soon as possible!
