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.
