The Twins Youth Training Camps are a highlight each and every summer!
Twins Training Camps presented by Select Heartland Chevy Dealers provides players an opportunity to continue to develop their skills during their summer baseball seasons. Our camps cater to kids at every level of play. Whether a beginner or a budding pro, each player gets top-notch instruction.
These, three-day long, camps are open to players ages 8 to 13. Players are grouped by age and skill level. Players will go through hitting drills designed to correct flaws and improve swings; defensive drills including infield and outfield work; and throwing drills designed to teach players the correct way to throw to gain velocity, accuracy and avoid arm injuries..
