Georgia College will officially host three prospect camps this summer. The camps are open to rising freshmen through seniors who are interested in baseball and softball.
The baseball camp hosted its first group of prospective students on June 16, but anyone interested will have another opportunity in July.
The coaches want students to know no matter their skill level, all are welcome to attend. “If you love the game, then you’re at the right place,” said Jamie Grodecki, Head Coach for Bobcats’ softball. “The passion and love for the game are one of the biggest parts of someone’s success,” she said.
High school students will learn more about the school and train with some of the best in GC athletics. “I want to help better these kids,” said Justin Baker, pitching coach for the Bobcats’ baseball team. “I have played college baseball at a high level, and many friends went on to play pro ball. I want to use what I have learned to help these kids in the long run.”
Along with building their skill set, students are allowed to explore the campus. The camp features coaches from all over Georgia but hopes to inspire the next generation of Bobcats. “Something that we think is important when we have recruits on campus, allowing them to tour the campus,” said Grodecki. “We make sure when they leave they have a good understanding of what it likes to be at GC and what it’s all about,” she said.
Even if the students don’t decide to attend GC, the coaching staff is excited to share their experience with the community. “I want to help better these kids,” said Baker. “It’s one of the reasons why I went into coaching. We want for these kids to have fun and give them information that will help them no matter where they go.”
