During the last few weeks, over 180 athletes participated in our 5-Tool Summer Camps. Seven camps took place (week-long and single-day camps) in six locations around the province, Ste Anne, Altona, Selkirk, Hamiota, Souris, and Winnipeg.
Our 5-Tool Summer Camps focus on the 5 tools that are imperative to success in baseball: Hitting, Throwing, Fielding, Running and Game Strategy. The camps are designed using principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) and the knowledge of some of Manitoba's most experienced camp clinicians!
