FAQs on Trosky Baseball Elite Infield Camps
MY PLAYER IS YOUNGER THAN THE POSTED AGE/GRADE. CAN HE STILL ATTEND?
For camps advertised as 6th grade and up, we allow motivated players as young as 5th grade or who are physically at least 5 feet tall or 100 lbs to attend. Unfortunately, younger/smaller than that and the size differential becomes too great. Look for our youth camp opportunities or online academy to prepare for in-person camps.
MY PLAYER IS A LEFTY. IS THIS CAMP GOOD FOR HIM?
YES! We have 1,000’s of players attend camps every year and many of them are lefties. The skills they will learn apply no matter what.
MY PLAYER IS NOT AN INFIELDER. WILL THIS CAMP STILL BE GOOD FOR HIM?
YES! Coach Trosky’s philosophy is “No matter your position, you should train like a short-stop”. The arm actions, flexibility, movements, baseball IQ, etc. that make elite short-stops apply to all positions on the field. Your player will take the physical tools and the mental game training back to their position and every aspect of their life.
MY PLAYER CANNOT ATTEND BOTH DAYS. CAN HE ATTEND ONE DAY ONLY?
If YES! Players are welcome to attend one day only. There are still tremendous benefits and knowledge gained by attending one day rather than no days. Also, there is a reduced rate for attending one day.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the appropriate discount code to register for 1-day only.
MY PLAYER NEEDS TO ARRIVE LATE/LEAVE EARLY. IS THAT OK?
YES! Players are free to arrive late or leave early as needed. There is so much information and training to be had at camp, even if you have to miss part of it, parents and players say it is still worth coming for any of it they can.
When you arrive, simply put down your gear and join the group. If you need to leave early, excuse yourself from the group and leave. It is appreciated if you can notify us of your plans ahead of time at email@example.com.
NOTE: If leaving camp early players/parents are responsible to watch the time and depart as needed. Trosky Staff will not remind players when it is time to leave.
MY PLAYER IS INJURED. CAN HE STILL ATTEND? WHAT SHOULD I DO?
YES! We often have players attend with a range of injuries from sore arms to broken bones. Players and parents say that even with limited participation, the experience is well worth attending. Please inform Trosky Staff upon arrival of any injuries or limitations a player has.
NOTE: It is the responsibility of the player/parent and their doctor to determine the safe level of activity/participation in camp. It is the responsibility of the player to refrain from drills/movements as appropriate.
DO PLAYERS GET A LUNCH BREAK?
YES! Camps longer than 4 hours will have a 30-60 minute lunch break. Camps less than 4 hours typically do not include a lunch break although there will be snack/water breaks. Players are responsible for their own meals. Parents are welcome to bring lunch to their players. While players are allowed to leave the field during lunch, there are often talks that happen during the lunch break that many players will not want to miss.
WHAT TIME IS LUNCH?
Camps that do include a lunch break do not have a set lunch window. It often is determined by the natural flow of the instruction that day. Lunch typically will start between 11:30am-12:30pm most days.
IS FOOD AVAILABLE AT THE FIELD?
NO! Most venues do not have food available for purchase during camp. If there are concessions available, it will be noted in pre-camp details. Players should plan on bringing a lunch or having someone bring lunch to them.
CAN PLAYERS LEAVE DURING LUNCH TIME?
YES! Players are allowed to leave the field during lunch time, however, there are often talks that happen during the lunch break for players to listen to while eating. It is recommended that players bring their lunch or have someone bring lunch to them.
CAN PARENTS STAY/WATCH CAMP?
YES! Parents are always welcome and encouraged to watch camp. There are many talks (especially mental game) that parents consistently say are helpful for many areas of life, not just on the field. Parents are welcome to come and go as they like.
CAN SOFTBALL PLAYERS ATTEND?
YES! Softball players regularly attend. We always recommend inviting a friend so that you can use softballs during the drills and have someone to reinforce the news skills when you get home.
WILL COACH TROSKY BE AT CAMP?
YES! All Trosky Select, Trosky Adventures, and Complete Player Development Boot Camps are run by Coach Nate Trosky. Trosky Trained events are run by Trosky certified instructors.
