On Oct. 27 and 28, the Okotoks Dawgs Academy will be hosting an elite pitching camp inside the Fieldhouse at Seaman Stadium.
The camp is aimed to educate local, regional, and national elite players and will cover the full 18U Dawgs Academy throwing program.
“What makes the camp different from any other pitching camp is the depth of knowledge, playing experience, and coaching experience of the three coaches instructing in the camp,” Academy pitching coach Jeff Duda said.
Duda, himself, is an NAIA World Series champion and the 2012 Can-Am Pitcher of the Year, Lou Pote is a 2002 World Series champion with the Anaheim Angels, and Joe Sergent was drafted to the Miami Marlins and is the former Pitcher of the Year with the Calgary Vipers.
The camp will be covering:
- Pre-throwing arm care routine
- Throwing program designed by Duda and Pote
- Arm mapping and movement pattern/sequencing training modules
- Pitch design
- Velocity testing
- Post-throwing arm care routine
