UST Baseball Prospect Camp

Designed for players in grades 8-12, the UST baseball prospect camps work with the athlete over the four weeks in January, allowing for the individual to retain information and see measurable results over the course of the program.  Our goal is to educate you on all aspects of the game & provide you with an understanding of your own mechanics so you can be your own best coach! This is not a combine camp, you will receive real instruction from our staff and although we will evaluate each camper we are concerned with the individual having a good experience and hopefully gain a great deal of knowledge about baseball and their individual game.
