Kansas State Baseball will be holding a variety of camps over the holidays for all ages and sizes, including its four-week hitting league, Christmas with the Cats, and the Future Stars Kids’ Camp.
The four-week Hitting League provides players with the opportunity to keep their skills sharp during the offseason. The league will consist of four sessions, Nov. 26 - Dec.19. The hitting league will provide a competitive environment for hitters to enhance their hitting skills in the Brandeberry Indoor Facility. Teams will consist of four players competing over a four-week season using seven-inning games with each player taking five swings per inning. Each hour-long session will consist of 15 minutes of instruction and 45 minutes of competition. Players may sign up individually and will be assigned to a team or they may sign up as a team for a discounted price. The league is open to any and all entrants limited only by age, gender and number.
The third-annual Christmas with the Cats is a day camp held at the Brandeberry indoor practice facility on Dec. 15 for ages 6-12. The camp staff will be composed of the K-State coaching staff and current Wildcat players. They will take the kids through a series of drills to enhance their skills and understanding of the game. The camp will also include games and competitions to keep the atmosphere fun and exciting. Camp tuition includes two meals and drinks for lunch and dinner.
The Future Stars Kids’ Camp is a one-day baseball experience that provides high-quality instruction that covers every aspect of the game for ages 6-12 on Jan. 21. The morning will focus on pitching and defense, while the afternoon will focus on offensive skills. Campers will be separated into groups by age/experience and will enjoy various practice drills and friendly competitions. Campers need to pack a lunch, as there will be a lunch break between sessions.
