Stacy Mizelle of Windsor will host a more affordable baseball camp for local children on October 9, 2021. Seeing the need for a little extra coaching for our local players, he stepped up to the plate to help.

A lifelong baseball player himself, Mizelle explained how the local little league coaches are parents who provide excellent service for the community by coaching local children. However, Mizelle wants to focus on fine-tuning the fundamentals to give our local players a competitive edge.

This chance to shine is essential for children who transition from little league to school competition, as baseball can provide scholarships and future opportunities for the most skilled players.

In addition to college scholarships, kids who participate in sports gain these benefits:

  • Forming friendships
  • Learning to accept constructive criticism
  • Better physical fitness
  • Developing drive and focus
  • Finding healthy pastime that keep them out of trouble.

As an athlete, Mizelle knew these outcomes, so he knew he had to find a way to help. His idea came to fruition as the Cashie Baseball Camp.

Bertie News spoke to Mizelle about the camp, and this is what he said:

Local kids here are falling behind. I’ve been fortunate enough to be around baseball my whole life. I want to give these kids a chance.”

The Costs of Many Baseball Camps

Sports camps add up quickly for parents, as anyone who ever sent their children will confirm. Besides the cost of the instruction, which can be as high as $200 or more per day, parents from Bertie have other expenses. For example, they must pay travel costs to shuttle their kids to Greenville or Virginia for the experience.

On the other hand, Mizelle will provide a day of coaching for $50 per child. Besides that, the local offering means that parents won’t need to spend gas money traveling outside of Bertie County.

The camp is open to children from Bertie, Hertford, Northampton, and other surrounding areas. The camp location is Davis Park in Windsor.

What Will Kids Learn at Cashie Baseball Camp?

A Facebook post about Cashie Baseball Camp explains this:

“Our mission is to offer a cost-effective opportunity for local youth to learn, develop, and enhance baseball fundamentals and ultimately become better players. This opportunity will allow our young players to learn under the guidance of seasoned coaches. Allowing players the ability to see an instructor demonstrate proper fundamentals is instrumental in their understanding of the game.”
