2018 Winter Development Camp
Baseball NB is excited to announce its third straight year offering Off-Season Development Camps, and we are looking forward to continuing the growth and development of the provinces upcoming baseball players in 2018!
Athletes will receive eight training sessions exposing them to 16 hours of elite level clinical instruction in a small group setting to develop all aspects of their game. This year’s camps will incorporate the Zepp Swing trainer, and allow coaches to provide instant feedback and swing analysis to our athletes.
Once again, sessions will be led by Baseball NB Program Coordinator, Matt Clark, who is coming off a successful 2017 campaign, leading his 15U team to a National Silver medal, and playing a key role as a member of the coaching staff for the T12 Championship winning team, Atlantic-Maroon, earning him the 2017 Coach of the Year Award. Matt was part of the Canadian Junior National Fall Development Team in 2009, a 2010 graduate from Vauxhall Academy of Baseball(HS), as well as a 2011 WVIAC Conference Champion (Concord University - NCAA DII), and three-time CCBA Conference Champion with the UNB Cougars. Clark is now the Head Coach of the Baseball New Brunswick Canada Cup team, who will represent the province on home soil in 2018.
Returning for his second year with the program is Fredericton native, Corey Wood. Wood graduated from Prospects Academy(HS) before splitting his collegiate career between Prairie Baseball Academy, and the University of Arkansas at Monticello (NCAA DII), where he racked up a lengthy list of accolades during his senior season: 2016 GAC Conference Championship, 1st Team All-American, 2016 GAC Conference Player of the Year, and most notably winning the 2016 Josh Willingham Award which is presented to the Most Valuable Payer across all NCAA DII baseball. Wood now serves as the East Coast Recruiting Coordinator for the Prospects Baseball Academy and is entering his first full season of coaching, as a member of the New Brunswick Canada Cup baseball team.
Washburn HeadshotWe are extremely excited to announce that Mike Washburn will be joining this year’s coaching staff, and having him pass on his knowledge and experiences to our athletes. Washburn was a member of the 2008 Canadian Junior National Development team, before graduating from the Vauxhall Academy of Baseball(HS) in 2009. Washburn was a member of the Hill College Rebels (NJCAA) in 2010/2011, before finishing his collegiate career as a Central Connecticut Blue Devil (NCAA DI) in 2012/2013. After his college career, Mike continued his pursuit of baseball playing professionally as a member of Les Capitales de Quebec. Washburn currently plays for the Fredericton Royals, and has been an integral part in winning numerous provincial championships, national medals, and is the only player in NBSBL history to win the Triple-Crown award three times (2013,2014,2017).
