UCSB Youth Camps offer an opportunity for players to receive valuable instruction on the fundamental skills of baseball. Our staff will focus on teaching efficient mechanics for throwing, hitting, fielding, base running and the mental aspects of the game.
Campers will be made aware of the characteristics that define successful baseball players. Organized games between campers will provide a competitive outlet after specific drills have been practiced. Contests built into drills capture the learner's attention, which results in attentive practice.
Drill progressions will be aimed towards recognizing and developing good habits in all aspects of the game. General courtesy, respect for teammates and opponents and the importance of hard work will be taught to the campers through example by the Gaucho coaching staff. Drills, skill contests, and games make this a camp kids will remember.
