The Duke Baseball Prospect Camp represents a great opportunity for prospective student-athletes, who are committed to playing at the next level to showcase their abilities to top academic college programs, in a camp setting that provides an opportunity to improve and refine their talents.
This camp is designed for the high school player who has aspirations of playing baseball at the highest level (College or Pro).
We hire other college/high school coaches to work our camps in addition to our Duke Coaches. Other coaches that have worked previous camps have come from the following schools: Harvard, Dartmouth, Columbia, Bucknell, Swarthmore, Davidson, UNCW, Gardner-Webb, Milligan, E. Tennessee St, Bard, Catawba, Pfeiffer, and Belmont Abbey.
The intensive three-day format will emphasize individual position play, hitting fundamentals, and live game experience. If you are a prospective student-athlete who wants to play college baseball at a highly academic institution, this is the camp for you! Enrollment is limited to ensure personal attention in each and every aspect of the game, so sign up soon! Previous Prospect Camps have sold out in advance!
