Catching Clinics

Minnesota Baseball Academy Catching Clinics

Minnesota Baseball Academy's Catching Clinics are one of our most popular offerings. Limited to only six players per session, players will receive personal instruction and the reps needed to improve at one of the more technical positions the game has to offer.

The camp will focus around the big four: stance, receiving, blocking, and throwing, and include other aspects of the game such as bunt coverage, pick offs, handling and helping pitchers, and pitch calling. Agility, core, and leg strengthening exercises will also be incorporated into every lesson.

MN Baseball Academy's lead catching instructor, Jake Kurth (Augustana College) will be heading up the Catching Clinics.  This year we will be running two clinics, one in November (four sessions) and one in December (five sessions).  Camp is open to players ages 10U-18U.  Players will be grouped age appropriately.

**We ask that players wear their full uniform and bring their own equipment and have a protective cup and supporter on before camp begins. Should a player need gear or forget his we will provide him with gear for that session.   A player requesting gear must notify MBA staff prior to his session so we can have it ready before and the session can start promptly at its designated time.
