TRUSSVILLE – Hewitt-Trussville head baseball coach Jeff Mauldin and his staff opens their youth baseball camp from June 4-7.
All kids from kindergarten through 8th grade have a chance to learn the game of baseball from one of the winningest baseball coaches in the state. Mauldin believes this camp is a valuable part to sustaining success for the future of the Huskies baseball program.
“I know the camp is only four days, but the relationships you build in these days are key… these guys develop skills in the elementary and by the time they are in middle school they already know what to do and what the expectations are,” Mauldin said.
During his time at Hewitt-Trussville, he has led the Huskies to three state championship appearances, winning one of them.
“There are two goals that I want these kids to accomplish in this camp, learn the fundamentals to become better baseball players and just have fun.” Mauldin said.
The camp runs from June 4-7 with kindergarten through fifth grade starting at 9:30 a.m. through 12:30 p.m., while the sixth through eighth graders participate from 1:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m.
