The Camp & The Showcase:
Junior Day is designed for 2016 and 2017 high school graduates. This event is designed for players who just finished their junior year (2016 grads) or are just beginning their junior year (2017 grads). The event is for those players who are focused on becoming college baseball student-athletes. The camp will feature quality instruction from active college coaches in uniform, written evalutions provided by the coaching staff, a Discussion on College Athletics for both players and parents. The camp is open to all 2016 and 2017 high school graduates and is restricted in enrollment. Players who graduate high school in 2018 are eligible to register but must understand the prospect event is designed for the older players. The player-to-coach ratio will not exceed 8:1. The camp is in compliance with all NCAA rules.
The college coaches at Junior Day are on the field and in uniform
Just like they are for their own practices and games
ALL PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE:
Instruction from coaches attending the event.
A written evaluation to take home with them at the end of the event.
Opportunities to ask questions and get to know the college coaches.
One-on-one and small group instruction.
An open discussion about the NCAA recruiting process, rules, and regulations (parents are encouraged to either stay or come back for this segment. Questions are encouraged as to help answer questions and bust myths about the recruiting process).
Each player will receive a written evaluation as well as a verbal evaluation from the different levels of college baseball represented at the camp. Coaches will evaluate each player based on their experiences at their level of college baseball and give immediate feedback. This will allow each participating baseball player the opportunity to get a much clearer idea of where their skills may fit at the college level. The evaluation is designed to be informative but not restrictive. Each Junior Day Regional can differ slightly when it comes to the written evaluation but generally speaking players will be evaluated in areas of the game such as: arm speed (velocity), ball exit speed off of bat, running speed, and throwing accuracy. Players will also be instructed in improving the skills areas that they are having evaluated. Players will be provided with information that they can use to compare and contrast where they stand with current college baseball players. Players will be either be handed their evaluation before leaving Junior Day or it will be emailed to them in pdf format.
Why is it a camp and a showcase?
Well, because it's the best of both worlds. Players want to showcase their skills to coaches but they should also want to learn from the coaches. Coaches want to evaluate players and their skills so they can teach them appropriately, just like they do with their own players. Coaches also want to see how players react to new instruction, new techniques and how they socialize with peers and other coaches.
JUNIOR DAY IS RUN BY CURRENT COLLEGE COACHES
The College Athletics Education Seminar:
The College Athletics Education Seminar will be held during camp and is for all members of the family. The seminar will last approximately a 45-60 minutes. The discussion will cover topics like: The NCAA Recruiting Rules, How to Promote Yourself, What Coaches Look For, The Best Way to Make a Video, What to Expect Playing College Athletics and How to Talk to College Coaches. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will come out of the event having a much better idea of What College Athletics is All About. Parents and players are encouraged to ask questions during the discussion.
