Ankeny Centennial High School Camps

ANKENY CENTENNIAL HS CAMPS | Jaguar Baseball Academy

 

This Baseball Academy is led by the Ankeny & Centennial Baseball Coaching Staffs.
Open to ANY and ALL Students Grades 1st - 8th.
This Academy is open to Any and All students enrolled in Ankeny North (Centennial) feeder schools.

Centennial HS Baseball Coach Mark Hey along with the coaching staff of Centennial High School and members of the varsity baseball team will be offering several opportunities for North feeder students in grades 1st-8th during the fall and winter. Youth coaches are encouraged to attend at no cost.

If a USSSA team wants to sign up together, there is a discount that applies.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR THE JAGUAR BASEBALL ACADEMY:

  • Give opportunities for skill development to all North Centennial feeder students.
  • Continue to promote multi-sport athletes. (This is why we split the academy up into separate sessions.)
  • Provide resources for teams of north-side players, such as field usage and equipment.
  • Provide an avenue for youth coaches of north side players to learn about fundamentals, drills, etc. that they can use in their practices.

These camps will focus on fundamental skills and drills and preparing players for the upcoming Little League and USSSA seasons. You may choose to attend one, two, or all three sessions. The registration fee for one or more camps includes a T-shirt (one t-shirt per player).
