At U.S. Baseball Academy, young players can enjoy a real Spring Training experience.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the addition of Newton High School to its lineup for the coming winter and spring.

U.S. Baseball Academy’s Spring Training 2015 provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs with instruction by the area’s top coaches at the area’s top facilities. Players who choose multiple skills qualify for discounted session prices.

U.S. Baseball Academy’s 2015 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 220 sites across the United States. The session in Covington runs January 4-February 8 at Newton High School.

With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area’s best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it’s the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can’t get in a summer league.

Since 1988, U.S. Baseball Academy has run hundreds of camps and clinics for thousands of players nationwide. Each week, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including indoor batting cages, with each drill designed to teach a different aspect of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and specialized stations used by top high school and college programs. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher’s speed and control. Our catcher’s camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers.

Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year’s camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited.
