No BullyBats camps are scheduled at Piedmont at this time
The goals of BullyBats’ baseball camp at Piedmont Little League are:

- To have fun and play the game.
Players will meet up with old friends, as well as make new friends in a fun-filled atmosphere to enjoy the game of baseball.
What Our Baseball Camps Teach
Throughout the week, at Piedmont Little League, players will be working in the morning on each area of baseball. All players will go through a morning and afternoon stretching and throwing program. The emphasis is on properly taking care of the body through efficient warm-ups and perfect throwing mechanics each day we warm up.
Fielding drills and instruction cover areas such as stance, positioning, footwork, anticipation and reaction, ground balls and fly balls, backhands, double plays, rundowns, bag coverage, communication, and game situations and more.
Baserunning instruction includes improving quickness and speed with proper running technique, getting out of the box, lead offs, stealing, reading the pitcher, rounding bases, sliding, and game situations.
Throwing instruction will work to improve on correct throwing technique to maximize the fundamentals and utilize each player’s maximum potential with their given arm strength.
Hitters will rotate through our popular 4 step process of hitting. Each player will learn Stance, Stride Separation(load), Approach to Contact with both the lower half and the hands. Players will work off the tee, soft toss, and short toss in various drills emphasizing proper fundamentals in our approach to hitting. Hitters will also have a chalk talk to help them understand pitch recognition and the basic plate approach to maximize each at bat.
Players will also work on leadership skills and communication skills, with a high emphasis on HUSTLE and SPORTSMANSHIP!
