Camps & Clinics

The 2017 SUMMER CRAWDADS camps are now available for signups. 

More Than A Game and the Walnut Creek Crawdads are once again holding 4-day development camps this summer!  Camps are for players 7 years old thru 14 years old, with a focus on developing baseball & softball related skills.  Camps will be held at The FIeldhouse and Mt. Diablo High School Varsity Field.

Walnut Creek Crawdads is a summer, collegiate baseball team focused on providing a competitive baseball opportunity for players as they continue their quest to become professional baseball players.  The players volunteer their time at the camps to help offset the cost of playing in the league.  

Small group instruction and personal feedback allow players to put concepts into practice as our instructors share their experiences and knowledge.  Each player will get the maximum number of supervised repetitions in hitting, throwing, fielding, base running, and pitching/catching.  Instructors include current college players, college coaches, and ex-professional players.

Groups will be divided by age and skill level.

Cost is only $250 for the week for non-Fieldhouse members or $225 for Fieldhouse members.

To register as a member, go to and select Login or contact Don Gieseke at  Membership is free! 

Two camps are currently scheduled:

June 26 - 29 from 8:30 - 12:30
