CCHS baseball program to host spring, summer camps

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS baseball program is excited to announce plans for two upcoming camps for area youth that will take place this spring and summer. 

The first is a two-day Spring Break Day Camp on Monday, April 1, and Tuesday, April 2.  The Spring Break Day Camp will run from 9 a.m.-noon each day and is open to all area youth ages 5 to eighth grade.  The cost for the camp is per camper if pre-registered by March 15 is $50.  Day of registration will be $60. 

Each camper will receive free admission to the SMHS game on April 1 at 6 p.m. 

"It is our goal to provide your child with a better understanding of the fundamentals of the game, while allowing him/her an opportunity to take part in several drills that are similar to those used the CCHS baseball program," said Prichard, who enters his seventh season as CCHS head coach and 11th year in coaching.

The CCHS baseball program will also be hosting a Summer Pitching Academy this summer. 

The Summer Pitching Academy will spend six days throughout the summer focusing on the basic fundamentals of pitching and arm care.  The players in this camp will also receive video analysis from the CCHS baseball staff. 

This camp will be limited to the first 20 campers ages 9-14.

The cost of the Summer Pitching Academy is $85 per camper. The dates for this camp are as follows May 31, June 7, June 13 or 14, TBA, June 21, July 12, and July 19. The pitching academy will run from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. each day.

Both camps will be held at CCHS' Jet Park across from Martin Elementary.

Campers should come dressed in baseball apparel and bring their own glove. Players are also encouraged to bring their own bat for the Spring Break Day Camp. Please label equipment so it can be easily identified.

Campers should bring both baseball cleats and tennis shoes each day.
