MONGERO² “DIRT BRO” ELITE INFIELD ACADEMY AT UNCW WINTER CAMP
The “Dirt Bro” Elite Infield Academy is nothing short of a comprehensive infield play experience. It is a camp, if you will, that actually delivers! A player’s two full days with veteran Infield coach, Trent Mongero and his son, who is a 4 year Division 1 – starting shortstop, will be filled with learning, implementing, and improving the key physical and mental tools that will allow a player to catapult their infield play to next level and beyond. This camp is for serious baseball players only and space is limited. This academy is NOT about hundreds of fungos. It is, however, about growth, development and positive change that can significantly transform in-game performance.
Level of instruction: This camp is 100% appropriate for rising college players on down to 6th grade…Yes, even graduated seniors will grow as a player, and that is a guarantee. What other camp experience guarantees that? They will now have the entire summer to prepare for the difficult challenges that linger before them as they aim to earn a starting infield position in the fall. Current HS and MS players will be privy to critical skills and drills that will help them on their journey to and through HS, and ultimately, one day reach their personal goals as a baseball player.
Players will be introduced to key skills and drills that will challenge eye-hand coordination, footwork coordination, hand speed, balance, and efficiency. All while developing the actions and tools that recruiters and professional scouts look for and desire. Everything will be taught and implemented to the highest level. This is referred to as the “game speed, game challenge” principle
A few of many camp topics include:
Many key infield drills that will transform a player’s game.
Throwing mechanics used by top college infielders and professional players that allow for short, repeatable, consistent throws and often improved velocity.
Detailed Infield “catch play routine” that will transform an infielder’s throwing ability and accuracy, over time.
Ways to significantly increase a player’s range (ability to cover ground and make more plays).
Campers will learn and implement critical pre-game and pre-practice “routines.”
Players will also learn how to assess their strengths and weaknesses in order to develop a personal weekly/monthly/yearly training calendar to strategically reduce weaknesses.
What physical tools must be developed, and to what standard, to play infield in college..including the D1, power 5, level.
What qualities of a player’s “mental make-up” allow him to become a champion on and off the field.
Introduce “mental tools” that allow players to “manage pressure,” anxiety, doubts, and worries… while trying out or playing games, even the biggest game moments of a season or tournament.
Infield IQ and situational awareness that make a player more desirable and help them earn the trust of coaches. Which in return, creates more playing time opportunities.
Character and integrity training. Share what college coaches and pro scouts desire in a prospect and don’t want in a player.
Softball players are welcome to attend. Often, but not always, they attend in pairs, so they have a partner to work with throwing a softball.
