Description

This camp is a great way to get your 4-year old (soon to be 5) or your 5-year old child started in baseball. No previous experience is necessary.  Camp covers basic baseball skills including throwing and catching the ball, fielding (grounders & fly balls), playing your position, and running the bases. Hitting instruction is also provided in separate groups: tee-ball hitting off a tee and 'coach pitch' hitting. Camp is appropriate for new and returning Tee-Ball players as well as for players making the transition to 'Coach Pitch' baseball from Tee-ball.

Players will be divided by skill and age for the camp. Number of separate groups depends on the number of players that register.

The Fort Collins Foxes are all active collegiate ball players who are trying to make their way to the majors. They are coming to Fort Collins this Summer to play in the Mountain States Collegiate Baseball League, a wooden bat league. We have arranged for their Head Coach and a number of their position players and pitchers to provide youth baseball instruction at The Edge Sports Center.

Fort Collins Foxes 2017 Head Coach Christian Heideger will lead this camp. Coach Heideger played catcher on the Foxes in 2015 and 2016 and on the Windsor Beavers in 2014. He was the Golden Glove Winner on the Foxes last year.

Coach Heideger will be assisted by the 2017 Fort Collins Foxes players. All of the FC Foxes players are current collegiate baseball players, many looking to break into the professional ranks after graduation.

The following players and coaches are members of the 2017 FC Foxes who are RETURNING from a previous season with one of the Centennial League Teams (FC Foxes or Windsor Beavers). They will be giving instruction in the summer camps as well as the Daily Instruction offered every weekday (see below)

    The Indoor Baseball Facility at The Edge in Fort Collins

    A Full-size Indoor Diamond is the centerpiece of The Edge when it is configured for baseball and softball. A floor-to-ceiling, heavy duty vinyl divider curtain creates a 120' x 122' -area for the full-size diamond. Standard bases, available on site, are anchored into sleeves at whatever distance is needed for the team using the field, from 50' to 90'. There is plenty of room to 'play behind the base' no matter what base length is used. A standard pitcher's plate, also anchored into a sleeve, is set at the required distance.

    baseball setup Full Size Indoor Baseball Diamond

    Baseball Hitting Tunnels Baseball Batting Cages

    The foul lines and batter's boxes/catcher area are permanently inlaid in the turf. Dugouts with benches and bat racks are provided along the first and third baselines. Seating for spectators is provided behind chain link in 'center field.'

    On the other side of the divider curtain, three 51' drop-down tunnels, fully netted, are available for live-hitting or throwing. Four additional 75' throwing lanes are also available as a bull pen area or for 'long toss. Each lane can be setup with a portable pitching platform if desired. In a separate area next to the field, there are 4 permanent batting cages equipped with brand new pitching machines. Altogether, a total of 11 individual practice areas are available for hitting or throwing in addition to the full-sized infield.

    Coach Turtle Thomas, Head Coach at Florida International University, has given several sessions of hitting clinics at The Edge over the past four years. His comment on the facility is: "Of all the indoor baseball facilities I've used for my clinic, this is the best in the country!"
