Baseball Camps

Our baseball camps focus on the hardest, but most rewarding part of the game, hitting. We combine hitting drills and athletic development, with lots of focused, goal based batting practice in order to fully immerse the players in developing their hitting skills. We also include components of pitching and fielding as well.

Our baseball camps provide youth baseball players (ages 8-13 years old) in the Vancouver area with the opportunity to learn proper baseball fundamentals and technique through professional instruction by our experienced coaches. Our baseball camps are developed and run by our Co-Founder, Mark Pottie -- Vancouver's Top Baseball Hitting Instructor and the Head Coach of the Junior North Shore Twins.

Three Levels of Instruction

  • Baseball Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • High Performance

The kids will be placed in small groups based on their skill level and will be provided with individual guidance on how they can further develop their skills.
