Southern Miss Baseball Summer Camps

The Southern Miss Baseball Program is pleased to announce it will be offering 2 more camps for kid’s K-8th grade this summer. The first will be our Summer Kid’s Camp, which is set to be held at Pete Taylor Park July 18-21.  The second is our Father/Son Camp that is slated for August 27th. Information on both camps can be found below or on our camp website, southernmissbaseballcamps.com.

Summer Kid's Camps

The week-long session is for kids entering grades K-8 and slated to take place July 18-21. Campers will be divided into groups by age to ensure quality and safety. This camp will cover fundamentals such as hitting, base running, defensive techniques, primary and secondary positions. The camp will be limited to the first 100 applicants. Each camper will receive a USM Camp T-shirt and insurance. Cost for the four-day camp is $165. Times for each day will begin with sign-in taking place from 8:30-9 a.m., with the conclusion of each day at 12 noon.

Father/ Son Camp

This camp will provide an outstanding bonding opportunity for the parent and child while also learning the game of baseball and developing an understanding of key fundamentals in maximizing their son’s full potential.  Camp will be held on August 27th and is for kids entering K-8 grade. Teaching areas will include pitching, hitting, catching, infield and outfield play. The goal of this one-day camp is to provide answers and training solutions to the questions that are most often asked by today’s fathers and youth league players.

Southern Miss Baseball Camps include specific and professional caliber instruction in all phases of the game including hitting, pitching, defense, and base-running. Camp counselors and staff will include the Southern Miss Baseball coaching staff, and current collegiate athletes along with a professional athletic trainer.  

 

Camp Registration for all Southern Miss Baseball Camps can take place at www.southernmissbaseballcamps.com. For any questions or advanced information, please contact Southern Miss assistant coach B.A. Vollmuth at 601-266-6542 or email .

Thorguard Lightning Prediction System
The Oak Grove Optimist Park has a lighting prediction system and we ask that you adhere to any warnings the system may give regardless of how conditions may appear to be.  Please use common sense with any inclement weather.

The THORGUARDIAN is the first, totally integrated advance warning system for lightning.  The sensor continuously monitors the atmosphere's electrostatic energy and evaluates the potential for lightning within an area of approximately 2 miles in radius.  When the system determines a hazardous condition, the air-horns and strobe light provide necessary alerts.

How the system works in basic terms:
  1. System detects the probability of lightning striking based on measuring electrostatic energy in the air, NOT that lightning has struck. (That could be too late!)
  2. When the system detects a high probability of lightning the alert horn will sound and the strobe light will come on and stay on.
  3. Once the alert horn has made the warning, the system begins a 10 minute count down.  If conditions are cleared during that time frame the system will give an all clear, if not the system will continue to recycle the 10 minute count down process.
  4. Once an “all clear” condition is established by the system it will give three back to back horn blasts and the strobe light will go off.
REGARDLESS OF THE HORN, IF THE STROBE LIGHT IS ON STAY OFF THE FIELDS!  The best place to wait out the storm is in a nearby building or Vehicle.  Do not wait in the Dugouts!
(The strobe light is located on the east side of the crow’s nest of the 4-plex tower and is visible from all fields.)

Please note that this is the same system that is used by the PGA, the Olympic organization, & other professional sports organizations.  We should not put our children in harms way based on personal judgment for the benefit of playing a game. 
 
For reference the system is made by Thor Guard and info can be found at www.thorguard.com
