ETSU Baseball Head Coach Tony Skole and his staff released its 2014 summer camp information on Friday.
The first session will run from June 16-19 and the final session is set for July 14-17. Both camps will run from 9 a.m. until noon and are held at Thomas Stadium.
The Tony Skole Summer Camp is open to children ranging from ages 5-13, while the cost per child is $150. Space is limited and early registration is recommended.
“We are excited about another year of summer baseball camps,” said Skole. “Our coaching staff and players truly enjoy working with all the youth players from Johnson City and our surrounding communities. Once again, we anticipate both of weeks of our camp to be sold out. The youngsters we have at camp love being on the field at beautiful Thomas Stadium. It is a great experience for everyone involved.”
Each camper will receive instruction in basic fundamentals of hitting, base running, defense and the proper mental approach to the game. The campers will also be evaluated thoroughly and be given valuable information on ways to improve their game.
Along with Skole, instruction will be given by ETSU assistant coaches, Xan Barksdale, Kyle Bunn and Chris Gordon. Instruction will also be given by current and former ETSU and professional players.
Campers must bring his own glove and bat. Shorts or sweatpants, T-shirts, and tennis shoes are adequate attire, but baseball pants and cleats (no metal spikes) are recommended.
