Twins Offseason Youth Camps provides players an opportunity to continue developing their skills as well as prepare for tryouts and the start of the new baseball season.
Twins Offseason Youth Camps are open to youth ages 7 to 14, and located at the National Sports Center in Blaine. Camps vary from 5- 10 hours of instructions.
The instructional staff is very experienced and dedicated to helping youth develop their skills. A large and experienced staff ensures a low player-to-coach ratio, so players receive the attention they need to develop.
Players will go through hitting drills designed to correct flaws and improve swings; defensive drills including infield and outfield work; and throwing drills designed to teach players the correct way to throw to gain velocity, accuracy and avoid arm injuries.
