Are training camps effective for kids still in Middle school?

Tuesday, February 09, 2010 by Dori Watts

My son is doing a persuasive essay on baseball camps. He is having difficulty finding info on if training camps are effective for kids still in Middle school?? What is your opinion or any actual facts/stats? Also would attending training camps in Middle school prepare you to play High School baseball?

It is unlikely to find any accurate/documented facts concerning training camps. Sometimes it's up to you to find a trusted source for info regarding these camps. Ask the camp director HOW their instruction is different? What drills will they cover that will be based on the tryout evaluation at YOUR SON'S particular high school? High school tryouts are based HEAVILY on sound fundamentals and mechanics.
