The camp runs through July 30. The final academy session at Wardlow Park is Aug. 2 to 6.

Lebard Park, home of Seaview Little League, hosts the Aug. 16 to 20 and Aug. 23 to 27 sessions. All academy sessions are from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Morning stations will blend individual instruction with station-to-station work (pitching, hitting, fielding, outfield, repetitions), with each athlete receiving small-group private instruction in each station.

After a short break, the itinerary continues with quick-hitting, high-energy station instruction in fundamental areas such as rundowns, cuts/relays, team defense, skills, baseball athleticism and swing repetition.

The Summer Academy, now in its 10th year, also involves an Olympic-style competition as well as game competition and position-specific training. Lifeletics' Format B involves game competition, as well. For registration and cost information, visit the website, http://www.lifeletics.com.
