Junior Dons Thanksgiving Skills Development Camp
Location: Benedetti Diamond – San Francisco, CA
Monday, November 20, 2017 to Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Starts: 9:00am / Ends: 12:00pm
Bring your players to a 3-day youth skills Camp! Throughout the course of the camp we will cover defensive, offensive, pitching and catching lead-ups and drills that our college players work on everyday to master their craft. We believe that the formula we use with the college level players will benefit your player and get them better prepared for seasons to come and a better understanding of the game. The clinics will be run by Assistant Coach, Aritz Garcia and Director of Operations, Elliott Waterman. Along with Aritz and Elliott, there will be current Dons players and alumni who are continuing to play professionally as part of the coaching staff. Our coaching staff is dedicated to the development of your player and his skills. They will receive top rate baseball instruction while being coached through avenues of character. It has been and will always be our goal to provide your children with positive role models, people that they can be proud to look up to.
