This camp is open to all age 14u-18u players; pitchers and catchers will work on their specific positions from 8-12pm and infielders and outfielders will train from 1-5pm at North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex.
The 5-game guarantee starts on Wednesday, July 25th and there will be 15 (confirmed) college coaches from all levels roaming the fields to scout the talent; there’s a mix of NCAA Division I, II, III as well as NAIA and Junior Colleges.

Myrtle Beach is known for its sand, ocean, golf and family activities. Therefore, it offers plenty of ways to stay entertained in between games. We suggest taking advantage of our “Triple Crown Special” and using the 15 free tickets to watch a Scrap Yard Dawgs Professional Fastpitch game or check out the Rawlings store at the Tanger Outlets.
The city of Myrtle Beach and its surrounding communities continue to embrace this Triple Crown event and the teams that come to compete. We’re excited to wrap up another awesome fastpitch season at the most beautiful beach destination.
