: Make sure you bring or wear the following:
: Please have your catcher to the field approximately 15-30 minutes prior to the start of camp on day one for check in (Day one only). After that, Coach Todd and/or his staff typically arrive at least 30 minutes prior to camp. We will start camp at 8:00am sharp each day.
: Camp field sessions will conclude at 11:30 each day. Training will end around 11:15 and then Coach Todd will do one of his “Final Thought” talks until 11:30. Parents are encouraged to be there for Coach Todd’s post camp talks.
: It is not only allowed, it is encouraged. We love to have the parents observe during our camps and clinics. You are welcome to observe from the bleachers during the drills and training. If we can help the parents to gain more knowledge about the position so they can reinforce and pass along the information to the catchers, we’re all for it! We just ask that you please stay in the bleachers or on the “side lines” and not come actually on the field or in the training area. We don’t want anyone to get hit by a ball. Thanks for your understanding.
: There is A LOT of information out there about the position of catcher. Coach Todd is known for the ability to dissect the complex and present it in the simple. His ability to communicate the information in a manner that is relatable and understandable to catchers of all ages and experience levels is what sets him apart. Additionally, The Catching Guy events are not only designed to help develop the skills your catcher needs to succeed at the position, and in the game of baseball… there is also a large emphasis placed on building the confidence needed to succeed in the “game of life.”
