"I think it's real important because what it does is it gets them to learn how to play the game and how they can better themselves," he said. "Unfortunately, they can't learn the game and get better at the game just by playing. You have to work on the little points of the game to get better.

"It's like I tell our kids at Shoal River: If they get better, they have a chance to play at the next level, but if they don't, they are not going to be able to.

"I think that's how (the camp) helps them. So when they go to middle school or high school, they have a better chance of making the team."
