Washington Nationals Camps Enrollment Team
The following are some frequently asked questions regarding our camp programs. If you cannot find the answer to your question, or would like to speak with someone in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The curriculum for Nationals Summer Camps is designed and implemented by our Nationals Summer Camps Director of Curriculum Roc Murray, a highly decorated baseball coach and professional scout from California. Roc has coached, tutored, and trained ballplayers at various levels of age and skill for the past 30 years with incredible distinction. His experience and recognition includes:
Our Nationals Camp curriculum employs simple yet comprehensive principles of the physical world around us. These principles are paired with straightforward vocabulary designed to promote fluid, consistent, and productive movement. By pairing physical principles with clear-cut vocabulary, the time necessary to understand fundamental baseball skills is compressed. The direct benefit for the campers, as well as parents, is the development of a tangible skill set over a short period of time. The application of the basic skills learned during Nationals Camp will provide each player with a springboard for future baseball learning.
The Washington Nationals Summer Camps coaching staff is comprised of professionally trained coaches with extensive experience at the youth, high school, collegiate and professional coaching levels. We specifically target teachers and educators with outstanding backgrounds working with and motivating children and extensive background checks are performed.
Aside from considerable experience on the field, our coaches are all motivators and teachers with goals that stretch beyond teaching the game of baseball. Through our all-camper assemblies and daily individual and teamwork challenges, we strive to teach the core values of leadership, teamwork and effort over results. It is our mission that each camper has the experience of a lifetime and leaves our camps as both a stronger baseball player and a better leader off the field- not to mention a more dedicated Nationals fan!
