The camp will begin with a unique experience not usually seen at a prospect camp.
The event will start Saturday, August 12th at 4:00pm in one of the classrooms at USF. The day will begin with registration and an introduction to the Dons staff and culture. After the afternoon meet and greet, players will go on a tour of campus, and will hold a player's forum with current USF Dons.
On Sunday August 13th, the players will arrive at 8:30am. The players will be lead in the same warm-up routine as the Dons by coaches and players currently at USF. They will then go through a workout on the field where they will receive instruction from Coach Nino Giarratano, Coach Troy Nakamura, Coach Matt Hiserman and Coach Steve Domecus. Later the afternoon portion on Sunday, August 13th, players will be divided up into teams and compete in games.
Along with the games and workout, player will also receive instruction on the mental side of the game with our Diamond U. This will focus on education, information and developmental aspect of our program. Baseball is more than just between the lines and at the University of San Francisco we focus on the complete person. Our Prospect Elite Thanksgiving Showcase will help develop your skills and insight as a baseball player, but also as a person.
Overall, the goal of the camp is to give the participants an inside look into what it is like to be a USF Don Baseball player and supply them with the tools it will take to be successful at this level.
