Getting Dirty: What to Expect at Rob Deer Baseball Camps
In each city we offer a morning session for youth baseball players ages 7 up to 13. Depending on sign ups, we break down into groups of ten from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm each, then rotate the groups between soft toss, tee drills, fielding, base running, and the oft-forgotten aspect of the game, proper bunting!
With a four station set up, we start the morning with Rob addressing campers, taking questions, and then we break into our groups. Rob takes two groups to the cages, and other former Pro baseball players will take the other two groups to the field for fielding and base running. We constantly rotate groups so that all campers are kept moving and engaged. Most importantly, each individual camper has a lot of one on one time with Rob to perfect his or her swing.
The same approach is taken for the teen group (ages 13-17) in the afternoon session from 1:15 pm to 5:15 pm.
