NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Due to highdemand, the University of Notre Dame baseball program has added an additional winter prospect camp for high school aged players.
The first winter prospect camp was announced in early November and is set for December 19. The additional camp will take place January 16.
Both one-day camps provide an excellent opportunity for high school aged players to receive instruction from the Irish coaching staff on different aspects of the game including hitting, defense, pitching and base running.
The camps offer personal and group instruction with special attention given to proper instruction and drills to enhance the skill level of each individual.
Check-in for the December 19 camp is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. (ET) at the indoor hitting facility at Frank Eck Stadium.
The January 16 camp will begin with check-in at 2:30 p.m. (ET) at the indoor hitting facility.
Interested participants for either camp are encouraged to register as early as possible since only a limited number of spots are available for each class year.
All prospective campers must submit a completed application form. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis until all positions are filled. Acceptance of a camper will be verified upon receipt of the application with full payment. Please note that it is extremely important to provide a valid email address, as our confirmation and all communication will be sent via email.
The cost for each winter prospect camp is $150 per participant. Upon arrival, all campers will receive a Notre Dame baseball camp t-shirt.
Campers will have a chance to check out Notre Dame’s Loftus Athletic Center and Frank Eck Stadium, which boasts an indoor hitting facility that features six batting cages, state of the art pitching machines and HitTrax Technology, the first such system introduced to a college program.
To register, individuals must complete an application form with full payment to:

Each camper should bring their own baseball equipment – bat, glove, batting gloves, spikes and turf shoes. Catchers should also bring their own gear.
