Spider Elite Academic Prospect Camp
Our goal is for a complete experience for the player and parent. There is no better way for players to be evaluated, refine their skills with college coaches, learn about the recruiting process and experience college baseball. Our camps are designed for athletes to receive maximal exposure, interaction, and instruction from college coaches and players.
Plus 8 of the country’s top academic colleges/universities will be in attendance! Currently, these include:
University of Richmond (D1)
Virginia Commonwealth University (D1)
University of Charleston, WV (D2)
Randolph Macon College (D3)
University of Mary Washington (D3)
Virginia Wesleyan University (D3)
**2 more schools added soon!!**
