There's a reason Top96 is known as the best in the business. Our clinic format offers players (HS and JC age) the chance to work with and learn from some of the best college coaches in the country.

The coaches attending our Classic Camps come from schools with a broad range of entrance requirements including D1, D2, D3, JUCO and NAIA schools while most of the coaches we hire to work our Academic Camps come from schools that are rated by US News & World Reports as "MORE" or "MOST" Selective.

Our camps are open to any and all players, HS and JUCO age on a first come first served basis as long as space is available.

    The most important thing that players will take away from the camp is learning how you need to improve you game in order to play at the next level. All of our camp activities are focused on making you a better player. Listed below are the major activities of the camp:

    Orientation Session for Players and Parents

    This session is conducted by one of our college coaches and will provide an overview of all camp activities so you know what to expect. He will also discuss, in general terms, how college coaches expect their players to interact with coaches during practices and games so you can follow those rules not only during this camp but in all of your baseball activities.

    Position Specific Instruction Sessions

    Prior to any baseball activities, the players will be divided into groups and our college coaches will explain and demonstrate the proper mechanics/techniques for the “plays” normally associated with each position. This instruction covers 5 or 6 mechanics for each position Each player will receive a written eval card, prepared by one of our coaches based on the player’s defensive workout. This defensive workout will be designed to ensure each player has the opportunity to perform reps that show his mechanics. This information is available only for the players use and not disseminated to any other coaches and is meant to help the player identify the areas he needs to improve his game.

    Hitting Instruction Sessions

    Prior to any on field hitting the coaches will explain and demonstrate good fundamental hitting mechanics and point out flaws they regularly see in high school players. This instruction covers 5 or 6 mechanics. Each player will receive a written eval card, prepared by one of our coaches based on the player’s on field BP session. This information is available only for the players use and not disseminated to any other coaches and is meant to help the player identify the areas he needs to improve his game.

    Position Specific Clinic Sessions – Direct Instruction from College Coaches

    We have 13 different sessions: 3 pitching, 2 middle infield, 2 outfield, 2 first base, 2 third base and 2 catching sessions. In these sessions, our coaches will review the techniques/mechanics from the morning instruction sessions and then follow up with players actively participating in drills designed to perfect each skill. Each player will take part in three of these clinic sessions.

    Seminar for Parents

    While the players a going through their position specific clinic sessions our lead instructor(s) will conduct a seminar for the parents. This seminar will cover such things as NCAA clearinghouse, NCAA player contact guidelines, campus visits (official and unofficial), etiquette for contacting a coach by phone or email, what role players vs. parents should play in interaction with college coaches etc.

    Play One Game

    Each player will play in one simulated/choreographed game designed to maximize the types of defensive plays i.e. putting runners on first if necessary to try and see DP or base runners stealing. During the game the coaches will be coaching in the dugout, roving as instructors on the field or behind home plate.

    Playing time is balanced, to the extent possible for each position player and each hitter will get three at bats. Pitcher's Only will pitch 2 innings on the mound (4 batters per inning) and Primary Pitchers will get 1 inning on the mound (4 batters per inning). Secondary pitchers will pitch 1 inning on the mound, if space is available or a throw a bull pen session.

    1 Day Camps: Check-in time is 7:30 AM and camp will end at approximately 6:00 PM (depending on the number of players.)
    2 Day Camps: Check-in time on Day 1 is 7:30 AM and camp will end at approximately 6:00 PM (depending on the number of players.) Day 2 will be games only. Your game time will be assigned at approximately mid-day and posted at the field during Day 1.
    ***The final schedule for a 2 Day camp is determined by the number of players registered. For camps with 60 players or less we will condense the activities into 1 Day and play games in the afternoon of Day 1. With fewer than 60 player the total time to evaluate players is much less and we only need to play 1-2 games and can therefore fit all activities into 1 Day. Our 2-Day Camps generally have more than 60 players, so you should plan on spending two days. We will update the website with the schedule for the event as soon as it can be determined (Generally 8-10 days prior).
