The day begins with proper stretching, and then campers learn and practice the "skill of the day." Drills include throwing, fielding, hitting, base-running and game situations.

Games are played daily on Hofstra University recreational fields, and skills and techniques are taught by experienced coaches. Each session ends with a Hofstra "World Series."
