The camps will be instructed by Head Baseball Coach Doug Little, Assistant Coach Don Schafer and Assistant Coach Brock Stevens.

Coach Little is in his 16th year of coaching baseball at Potomac State. He has been named the American Baseball Coaches Association Regional Coach of the Year ten times. In 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2011, Little was also named the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) East District Coach of the year in leading the Catamounts to four trips to the Division I JUCO World Series. Potomac State has won the NJCAA Region XX Baseball Championship thirteen out of sixteen years that Little has been at the helm.

Coach Schafer has been with the Catamount’s baseball team since the fall of 1999. He works very closely with the hitters to improve their batting average and has also produced four winners of the NJCAA Eastern District Rawlings "Big Stick" award which is presented to the leading hitter in the East District. These players had individual batting averages of .446, .447, .448, and .456. Coach Schafer also serves as the infield instructor, third-base coach and works with the base runners.

Coach Stevens is in his second year at Potomac State where he serves as the outfield instructor as well as the first-base coach. He previously served as the head coach of the Myrtle Beach Hammerheads in Myrtle Beach, SC, and is the head coach of the Sting Rays this summer.

The camp is being held at Golden Park on the campus of Potomac State College from July 15-18 and will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon with registration beginning at 9 a.m., the first day.

Each camper should bring baseball gloves, bats, batting gloves, baseball shoes, tennis shoes (for indoor use in case of inclement weather), caps, catcher’s equipment and uniform pants or clothing suitable for play. A water bottle and sunscreen are highly recommended. The cost of each camp is $65 and all campers will receive a free Potomac State Baseball Camp shirt.
