Camp Format

23rd Annual Winter Ball Camp – The Camp’s success has been attributed to our RMSB Staff who love to teach the game of Baseball. Our Camp to Staff ratio makes it possible for our Staff to teach ALL the Players. We cannot promise everyone who attends a scholarship but we will provide every player an opportunity to enhance their skills and passion for the game. The Camp is for boys and girls 1st through 12th grade and Players will be divided into Teams based on Grade. Teams who sign up as Teams will be together throughout the Camp. Players will have the opportunity to attend 3 Defense Stations and have their choice of Position. There will also be Hitting Stations daily along. One game (with umpire) will be played each day with on field instruction. Speed Training and Agility Stations will also be provided by TOSH. The Camp is provided for the team and individual player to improve their baseball skills and have fun in a warm climate. It is the Goal of RMSB that each Player leaves the Camp with a greater love and respect for Baseball.
