National Catcher's Association All-Star Catcher Camps ($495.00)

Scottsdale Stadium-Scottsdale,, Arizona

Ages: 8-24

Cost: $0.00

Introduction

All-Star Catcher's Camp: This is IPB's one of a kind annual instructional Catcher's Camp. This unique program breaks down the catching position. IPB features former Major League catcher's Matt Stark (Toronto Blue Jays/Chicago White Sox) and Jim McNamara (San Francisco Giants) and current agent with the Scott Boras Corporation as instructors.

IPB has been fortunate to add former professional catchers Ronnie Deck (Baltimore Orioles bullpen catcher) Mike Baker (former New York Yankee scout), Carl Nichols former major leaguer (Baltimore Orioles) and current (MLB- RBI Program instructor) and Jayson Brown (Former New York Yankee farmhand) as part of their catching staff. Additional former professional catchers will be part of staff. This 3 day camp targets the areas of receiving, defensive positioning, blocking balls, fielding bunts, passed balls, fundamentals, throwing mechanics, foot work and blocking the plate.

Also the event dives into working with a pitching staff, calling a game/pitch selection, detecting weaknesses in hitters, taking control of a game and communicating as a leader on the field. The final day of the event ends with the famous Catcher's Olympics which implements most of these areas in a fun formatted timed game. Little League, High School, College and Professional levels will be divided into groups. Ages normally range from mm 8-24.

** SPACE IS LIMITED TO 30 CATCHERS**
