The NIKE Baseball Camps with the Gregg Jefferies Sports Academy will be held during the months of June, July, and August with all locations featuring instruction by the former MLB player, Gregg Jefferies. Each camper will be given professional insight about the game of baseball.
Director, Gregg Jefferies was a former first round draft pick out of Serra HS for the New York Mets who put together an amazing 14-year career at the Major League level. When Jefferies debuted for the New York Mets in 1987, he was the youngest current player in the Major Leagues. He compiled a lifetime .290 batting average and had a 76% success rate for stolen bases. Jefferies was selected to the All-Star Game three times.
“We are excited to bring our Northern California campers the opportunity to train with a former MLB player,” states Mike de Surville, Vice President of US Sports Camps. “Not only is his Major League experience a value and his ties to the Bay Area, but he has a passion for teaching youth and inspiring them to be the best they can be on and off the field."
Nike Baseball Camps provide focused, intensive training that is essential to improvement for all skill levels. Every facet of the game is covered with an emphasis on fundamentals to help players become valuable team members. At each location, campers are broken into groups with other players of similar age, abilities and goals. Each camp director does their best to advance players to the next level, keeping in consideration each camper’s experience and desire to improve.
