The Catching Camp - Baseball &
Softball Intensive Instruction

SportsCity and The Catching Camp held another successful intensive training camp in March 2019.  This sold out camp provided outstanding instruction for catchers from Illinois, Wisconsin, and even as far away as Canada. 

We are working to schedule a session in Fall 2021.
 Keep an eye on our SportsCity web page and The Catching Camp web site (link below). 

We are proud to be the Chicago home for this terrific organization, and we will work to get a new session started as soon as we can.   

The Catching Camp is the largest development program for catchers in the world, offering a variety of instructional options for athletes at all levels of baseball and softball.

This is an outstanding learning and training experience for any baseball or softball catcher.  Attendees work with highly experience trainers and participate in numerous drills for skills development and training over this two day camp.
