DETAILS

The Ross Natoli Fall Prospect Camp is designed for the advanced high school student-athlete in the 2018-2021 graduating classes who is striving to reach their full potential and eventually compete at the college level. All players will have an opportunity to meet, learn and be evaluated by the current Catholic University Baseball coaching staff and coaches from Georgetown and George Washington University, as well.

Our Camp coaching staff and instructors will include Head Coach Ross Natoli in his 33rd year, Associate Head Coach Bobby Picardo, Assistant/Pitching Coach Chris Nee and Assistant Coaches Mark Duffy and Kory Smigocki. Coaching staff from Georgetown and George Washington University will also be on hand to instruct and evaluate players.

FURTHER INFO

Our camp goals are to provide a forum for prospective student-athletes to display their athletic and baseball talents to the entire Catholic University baseball coaching staff and coaches from Georgetown and George Washington University.
