BETHESDA BIG TRAIN BASEBALL CAMP OVERVIEW

The Bethesda Big Train Baseball camp is back for its 16th summer! At the Big Train & BCC Baseball Summer Camp, your child will be coached by Big Train Manager Sal Colangelo, the Big Train coaches, and the Big Train college stars.

It is recommended that each camper have all the necessary equipment. Equipment can be found online from stores such as homerunmonkey.

We will be offering five exciting summer camps in 2014 to boys and girls ages 5-12: General Camp, Advanced Development Camp, Pitching Camp, Washington Baseball Celebrity Camp featuring Nationals players, and Garrett Stephenson Baseball Camp.

Camp Descriptions:

General Camp: All campers will receive excellent instruction in the fundamentals of the game as well as the opportunity to play in a live game each day. Each camper will receive an official Big Train & BCC Baseball Summer Camp t-shirt that will entitle the camper to free admission to all Big Train home games at Shirley Povich Field during the 2014 regular season.

Advanced Development Camp: Big Train Manager Sal Colangelo has designed these camps for advanced training for young players with above-average skills. On Monday, Big Train players and coaches will lead the campers through a series of drills designed to improve skills and choose teams for the week's showcase games. Each day from Tuesday through Friday, camp will begin with one hour of skills training followed by a 7-inning showcase game on Field #2. Each camper will receive an official Big Train & BCC Baseball Summer Camp t-shirt that will entitle the camper free admission to all Big Train home games at Shirley Povich Field during the 2014 regular season. For an additional $80, the participants in the Advanced Development Player Camps may attend the regular Big Train Camp in the afternoon until 3 p.m.

Pitching Camp: Affordable pitching camps which provide young players with specialized training can be difficult to find. The Big Train pitching camp provides highly specialized skill development at a very affordable price, just $160 per week. During the camp, 25 players will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one training and participate in pitching drills with Big Train college pitchers. Campers will work for two hours each afternoon in the Povich Field outfield and Povich Field bullpens, building the pitching skills to get them to that next level. Note: Pitching Camp will not meet on Wednesdays to prevent the risk of campers straining their arms.

Washington Baseball Celebrity Camp: Former MLB pitcher Garrett Stephenson will lead the Washington Celebrity camp. Players scheduled to appear in 2014 include current Washington Nationals players Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos. Over the years, Nationals players that have visited include Wilson Ramos, Ross Detwiler, Roger Bernadina, Chad Cordero, and Taylor Jordan plus Racing President Teddy Roosevelt! Learn from the pros! Special prizes and awards! Note: Players scheduled to appear are subject to change without notice.
