2016 & 2017 Denver Baseball Camps – Practice with the Pros

Single-day fall baseball camps taught by professional baseball players.  Serving Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Centennial, Parker, Greenwood Village, Cherry Creek, Aurora, & surrounding areas of Denver, CO.

Toronto Blue Jays Ryan Lavarnway & Texas Rangers Doug Bernier are offering a day of pro instruction for hard-working young baseball players ages 9 to 14 years.

  • Work with pro players to improve key baseball skills
  • Competitive, fun learning environment
  • Hitting, Defense, and Catching instruction
  • 8 to 1 player-to-instructor ratio ( or less )
  • Individual assessments with personalized feedback
  • Using technology for objective swing analysis
  • Pro baseball camps (instructors are current or former professional baseball players)
  • Currently registering for Oct 23rd at Cherry Creek High School (Greenwood Village).

Our camp instructors bring a combined 24 years of professional playing experience. That means learning what DOES work, and what doesn’t. And they are PASSIONATE about helping your player.

We get it… the emotions, the struggles, the passion to compete. We are players too! That means the goal of each Practice with the Pros instructor is to help YOUR player improve – to get the most out of his natural talent, to achieve his goals in baseball, and ultimately, to LOVE PLAYING THE GAME.

Hitting

Every player wants to increase bat speed and consistency at the plate. From proper mechanics to mental approach, your player will leave with new practical insights, skills, drills and personalized feedback on what he is doing properly and what to work on for continuing improvement.

The best players in the game know that hitting is both an art and a science.

We will have objective evaluations using the Swing Tracker bat sensor to diagnose bat speed, swing path and angles.

Our pro baseball camps have experienced coaches who have not only played at the highest level of baseball, but are currently still playing. That means it’s not a distant memory, but something we eat, drink, sleep and breathe. Our coaches will relate to players not only what a swing should look like, but how it should feel and what to think… from experience!

Defense

The defensive instruction at this camp will be rigorous. Here are a few of the things we are going to work on:

  • Fielding footwork, increasing range, double play turns, receiving throws, tips for executing advanced plays
  • Improving throwing technique for better accuracy and power
  • Defensive awareness – Possibly one of the most important and under-taught qualities that can significantly improve your results in the field
  • Base running – Taking leads, stealing bases, making turns, proper lead distance, improving first-step jump, player’s ability to know if he should steal base

Catching

Catchers will receive top-notch instruction from Major League catcher Ryan Lavarnway:

  • Receiving. Get more strikes called and have influence over every pitch.
  • Blocking. Keeping the ball in front and not letting runners take extra bases.
  • Throwing. Proper footwork and athleticism for strong, accurate throws. Shut down the running game and be a leader on the field.

Keeping the fun in baseball

The final part of our fall baseball camps will be a series of friendly competitions, specifically chosen to reinforce the baseball skills, mechanics and strategy introduced during the camp.

Winners will take home prizes, ranging from practice nets and other practical baseball gear to signed MLB memorabilia.

Did you know that there are 4 million fewer 7 to 17 year olds playing baseball now than there were in 2002?  That’s more than a 40% decline!   It has been suggested this is happening because the atmosphere of baseball has become too tense, too slow, too difficult to teach… whatever the reason, we aim to teach kids how to play baseball the right way  while also having blast.
