Attending college baseball camps can offer many benefits, including quality training, exposure to college coaches and possibly checking out a college that you may end up attending.
College baseball camps are an important part of the college recruiting process, but it can take a significant amount of research and preparation to find the right camp for you. That’s why we’ve put together a definitive list of every college NCAA Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA and junior college baseball camp in the country. You will also find the date, type and cost of each camp, potentially saving you hours of research time. Check it out here:
Not every college baseball camp invite is the same. If you’ve received a camp invite from a coach you’ve been communicating with, that’s a great sign and likely means that you’re on that coach’s radar. However, if an invite you’ve received looks generic, you’re probably not on that coach’s radar yet. You’ll get the most out of camp if coaches know who you are, so make an effort to build a relationship with coaches ahead of time.
First, do your research on the school and program before you register for camp. Attending a camp is a great opportunity to improve your skills and get recruiting exposure, but the decision to do so should be based on your family’s budget. If you have received a camp invite to a college on your list and your family can afford it, you should consider attending. If you’re working with a tight budget, focus on your target schools or look at who else will be in attendance at the camp in question. If coaches from other colleges will be present, especially ones from schools you are considering, it might be worth stretching your budget to attend. However, if you can’t afford a camp, make sure to still respond to your invite.
Make the most of your camp experience by following a few simple tips:
Maintaining communication with college coaches Is extremely important, so after camp, you’ll want to follow up with coaches and thank them for the opportunity. You can also ask them about which skills you need to improve. Afterward, whenever you have noteworthy updates to share, such as new video or verified stats, email them about your progress.
