Tomah Baseball Youth Camps
Online enrollment is available and preferred for planning purposes. We will accept registrations the day of the camp. Payment is due the day of the camp. All athletes will receive a shirt identical to those the high school players wear for practice. Every effort will be made to meet the size requested. Late registrants may need to receive their shirt after camp dates if sizes are not available.
Our youth camps are intended to provide training for anyone in grades K-8 interested in developing baseball skills. Players will receive instruction from current Tomah coaches and players. Campers will develop and enhance important skills in hitting, defense, throwing, and base running. Parents are welcome to observe and ask questions.

Athletes in grades K-4 will learn a variety of skills. After a short warmup, we will discuss the importance of proper throwing technique. Campers are then divided into groups by age and taken through a variety of stations covering fielding, throwing, and hitting. If time, we will finish with baserunning.
The second week starts with a review of the basic skills, reinforcing the major techniques in each area. A player can attend either session or both. The first session is not a requirement for session 2.
The first session on March 18 will focus on pitching and catching. We will introduce fundamentals required for each position. Specific drills will be used to show how to improve skill development. Each player will be recorded. Parents will receive an email shortly after the camp. Parents will be able to view and download video recorded of their child during the camp. Techniques taught and practiced at the high school level will be introduced.
The camp on April 1 will focus entirely on hitting. Techniques taught and practiced at the high school level will be introduced. Our intention is to use a variety of technology devices to measure athlete performance. Each participant will be recorded. One station will allow high school players and staff to review video with each participant to provide feedback on swing mechanics. Parents will receive an email shortly after the camp. A link will be included in the email to view and download video recorded or their child during the camp.
