The Super Skills Academy is an exclusive week of baseball for a limited number (48) of rising juniors and seniors (2012, 2013 and 2014 graduates only). The Florida State coaching staff will teach fundamentals, drills, and strategies with a "hands on" approach.

The staff will utilize the latest teaching methods including the use of individual video taping, along with individual sessions evaluating form and mechanics on each aspect of a player's position, hitting, and base running. Each player will receive a detailed notebook for his use in chalk talks and note taking. Every participant will receive a personal DVD as well as detailed evaluation and feedback on his efforts during the weeklong academy.

The daily sessions for these participants will include: individual position instruction emphasizing fundamentals (pitcher, catcher, infield, and outfield); position play practice and critique; hitting instruction, individualized video taping, simulated game experience; base running instruction; bunting instruction and practice; as well as instruction on proper strength and conditioning specifically for baseball players.

Participants will have lockers assigned to them in the state-of-the-art Dick Howser Stadium Clubhouse. Each player will receive two pair of practice shorts and two T-shirts.
