Registration for 2023 winter baseball training opens in October!  

 

Several camp and training offerings begin in January of 2023, and all camps regardless of age will be led by EPHS Baseball Head Coach John Buteyn, Legion Head Coach Mike O’Brien, and their 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!

 

3rd-4th Grade Skills Camp

Purpose: Our 3rd – 4th grade camp is focused on building a well-rounded, fundamental ballplayer with a complete set of skills appropriate for 3rd-4th grade.  Participants will receive instruction in hitting and baserunning in addition to throwing fundamentals, infield, and outfield defense.  This camp will seek to prepare 3rd graders for their first season of “kid pitch” baseball and will seek to prepare 4th graders for travel tryouts.

5th-6th Grade Skills Camp

Purpose: Our 5th – 6th grade camp is focused on building a well-rounded, fundamental ballplayer with a complete set of skills appropriate for 5th-6th grade.  Participants will receive instruction in hitting and baserunning in addition to throwing fundamentals, infield, and outfield defense.  This camp seeks to prepare participants for travel tryouts, but will also help players who are planning on playing in community leagues to improve their skills.

High School Prep Camp

Purpose: This camp, for 7th-9th graders, is designed to prepare the athlete for eventual or immediate 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 closely and continue to develop further relationships with the EPHS coaching staff before entering the program in the near future.

 

Schedule: 2:00-4:00 p.m. on Sundays from January 22 – February 26, 2023 and 4:00-6:00 pm on Sunday March 5, 2023 (six 2 hour sessions - no camp on Super Bowl Sunday, February 13) at EPHS Dome

 

Cost: $175 for full-camp registration (all full-camp registrants will receive an EPHS Baseball camps t-shirt)

Walk up, single-session registration on day of camp session: $35 per session

 

 

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 analytics, players will access to data regularly 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: See specific schedule below by grade level for Tuesday or Thursday sessions from January 17 through March 9, 2023 (eight one-hour sessions in total per grade level). All sessions will be held in the cages in the EPHS dome. 

 

6th Grade: 7-8 pm on Tuesdays

7th Grade: 8-9 pm on Tuesdays (7th grade section is FULL as of 11/6/2022)

8th Grade: 8-9 pm on Thursdays

9th Grade: 9-10 pm on Thursdays (9th grade section is FULL as of 11/6/2022)

 

Cost: $200 for a full-camp registration - no walk-up single-session participation. Registration is limited to 10 participants per grade level, so register as soon as possible!
