Nationally known catching program The New England Catching Camp will be returning to the State of Connecticut, partnering withAdvanced Sportsplex Training Center(1280 Newfield St. Middletown, CT)to conduct a 2-day catching camp and clinics March 8th – 9th, 2014. Jay Weaver, the director of the Nationally renowned New England Catching Camp, and his highly trained staff, will conduct camps for both baseball and fast pitch softball catchers, ages 8-18.
We will be offering a couple 2-day, 3-session (2-hrs each session) camp! One for the younger catchers and another for the older catchers. The 6-hour camps will be cumulative and will cover every aspect of the catching position including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (arm motion and mechanics on throws to the bases) and some fielding skills. Each catcher will be held to a standard that parallels their skill level. Coach Jay Weaver and his staff will have the ability to challenge the older catchers throughout the weekend with higher velocities (85+ MPH for the guys, 60+ MPH out of a windmill for the girls).
The 2.5-hour clinics on Saturday and Sunday will consist of instruction on all aspects of catching skills including stances, receiving, blocking, throwing (mostly mechanics on throws to the bases) and some fielding skills.

Baseball Bat Resource Page
Little League International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information. Click here to find the latest bat information, including the current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.
*NOTE REGARDING SOFTBALL BATS:
The composite moratorium only applies to baseball bats with 2 1/4 inch barrels. It DOES NOT apply to any divisions of Little League Softball. Also, there is no list of approved softball bats. In softball, the bat only needs to meet the specifications of Rule 1.10 (see rulebook) for a softball bat.
