Boys Only, Ages 14-18, Grades 9-12
For those of you who are unfamiliar with our program, we are a four-year university located on the south side of Indianapolis, IN with an enrollment of about 6,000 students. UIndy is dedicated to quality education and seeing that our students graduate. The Greyhounds are a nationally ranked NCAA Division II baseball program. We have won more conference titles than any other school in the Great Lakes Valley Conference (past or present). The 2019 squad saw another 30 win season with 26 GLVC All-Academic honorees! Our 2012 team won the Great Lakes Valley Conference championship, Mid-West Region championship and went to the NCAA Div II College World Series in Cary, NC. We will be graduating many seniors from this year’s team at the end of the upcoming 2019 season.
You will participate in a college-style workout with several college coaches in attendance. In past years we had several kids signed from this camp, not only to our program but also to other programs as well. This camp is a great opportunity to show off your skills. You will be active the entire time! We will also be offering important information regarding NCAA rules. How our camp differs from others: Each player will take home a report card style evaluation that includes a detailed breakdown of what level of college baseball that would potentially be the best fit for the player. All evaluators will be members of the UIndy coaching staff. In addition to evaluating defense, hitting and pitching, each player will have an opportunity to go through several vision training stations and receive information regarding the importance of maximizing vision and how it relates to pitch recognition skills. The players will learn how to use concentration grids, have an opportunity to track velocity and we will show them how to drill using colored balls to improve vision and split-second decision making. The players will also learn the importance of grip strength and how it relates to exit velocity. They will be tested on their current grip strength and they will go through an extensive rice bucket routine designed to improve hand and forearm strength.
