General Information

TROSKY’S 6 CONCEPTS:

After working numerous showcase events across the west coast and being a college recruiter and professional baseball scout, Coach Trosky became frustrated with the typical format used by major showcase and recruiting organizations. Typical formats include:

  • a lower number of college coaches in attendance and a lack of diversity (different levels of colleges) among them
  • a low number of repetitions on both offense and defense
  • a limited amount of game exposure for both pitchers and position players
  • a lack of connection with the coaches attending the event.

Over the years it became clear that despite attending numerous events and spending thousands of dollars, the majority of high school players end up frustrated and empty handed. As a result, the Trosky Games Camps model was built.

The 6 core concepts included in Trosky Games Camps are:
  • Multiple Games: Players participate in 2 games (a simulated game and a live game). With the peaks and valleys of baseball, multiple games give each player the opportunity to show consistency and/or to make important adjustments. This allows players to display a more accurate representation of their game.
  • Repetition: Players take batting practice in the cages before the games. They perform in skills training sessions and perform numerous repetitions between innings.
  • Relationships: Attending college coaches are on the field coaching and getting to know the players. Camp activities conclude daily with the College Coach’s Introduction, where players and parents have the opportunity to learn from the college coaches.
  • Recruiting Information: Players and parents receive recruiting insight from active college recruiting coordinators and from recruiting specialist Nate Trosky. The informative talks conclude with a Q & A session. At the conclusion of camp activities, Coach Trosky is available to answer questions.
  • Opportunity: Attending college coaches represent a wide range of colleges and universities (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and JC) giving each player the opportunity to be recruited by schools that meet his scholastic, financial, social, and athletic needs.
  • Schedule Flexibility: Trosky Games Camps are flexible with the schedules of those who cannot attend the entire camp (if you have a special schedule request, we can accommodate). All players are free to come and go throughout the camp when they are not able to attend.

CAMP DETAILS:

  • Camp participants engage in lectures regarding the mental game and the process
  • Roster spots are limited – maximizing playing time, innings pitched, and at-bats
  • Position Players participate in skills training: bat exit speed, velocity throw, 60 yard dash (info given to the coaches)
  • Camp participants play 2 games (1 showcase game and 1 simulated game)
  • Position Players receive 6 at-bats (3 live and 3 simulated game at-bats)
  • Primary Pitchers 2 to 3 innings
  • Dual Players (playing a position and pitching) pitch 1 to 3 innings

NOTE: An inning is equivalent to 3 or more batters

Camp Highlight:

After the conclusion of camp, both players and parents are given the opportunity to participate in the College Coach Introduction / Meeting, a valuable component to the recruiting process.
