Learn The Basics At Golden Knights Baseball School
POTSDAM, N.Y. – Summer is here, and that means only one thing: Baseball.
North Country kids are invited to improve their skills in the national pastime at the Golden Knight Baseball School, a day camp on the campus of Clarkson University.
Campers will be instructed on the finer points of fielding, hitting and base running. Participants will be matched by age, experience and skill level for specified instruction, and live games will give them a chance to put what they have learned into play.
Two sessions will be offered this summer. The first, for boys and girls ages 8 to 12, runs from Monday, July 13, to Thursday, July 16. Session II runs from Monday, July 20, to Friday, July 24, and is open to boys and girls ages 13 to 18.
Current and graduating seniors, including those seniors over the age of 18, are also invited to attend, since the NCAA no longer prohibits participation in summer camps and schools.
The camp is run by Clarkson Head Baseball Coach Mike Nicholson, who has 10 years of coaching experience at every level of NCAA play and scouting experience with the New York Yankees and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Assisting him will be Clarkson assistant baseball coach and Massena native Todd Kirkey and several area high school and American Legion coaches and current college baseball players.
Cost for the Baseball School is $200 per athlete for Session I and $250 per athlete for Session II. Registration takes place on Monday, July 13 (Session I), and Monday, July 20 (Session II) from 7:00 a.m. to 8 a.m. in Alumni Gym.
The Golden Knights Baseball School adheres to all rules and regulations of the New York State Department of Health. For more information, call Clarkson University Baseball at 315-268-3759.
