Prime Time Catching is the first event of its kind customized for training, showcasing, and competition among the best catchers in the state. This event is an invite-only -- with players from each high school class participating. The event will consist of two 2-hour training sessions per week for four weeks at Lakeside Baseball Club in Detroit. The final session will be showcase-style. Each participant is guaranteed 16 hours of training, a two-minute video package including stats & metrics, highlights from the camp, and a chance to blend competition with high-level training, instruction, and exposure. An All-State trophy will be awarded to four catchers, one per class, at the end of the four weeks.

Instructors will be Brandon Justice & Bobby Cavin.  Brandon Justice was formally the catching coach at Saginaw Valley State University and is now both the Director of Baseball Operations at Lakeside Baseball Club and a Varsity Assistant at Grosse Pointe South.

Bobby Cavin is a college catcher with Division I experience at the position as well as coaching experience as a local instructor.
