NLCA Dec. 29-30th Tools of Ignorance Catching Camp


NLCA December Tools of Ignorance Catching Camp

Welcome to the NLCA December Tools of Ignorance Catching Camp Registration!

This registration session will allow you to complete the registration for the 2-day catching camp and lock in your roster spot for participation.  There will be about 6.5 hours of training and instruction and approximately 1.5 hours set apart of our annual NLCA Catching Olympics.  


We encourage our out-of-the-town/state catchers to sign-up ASAP because once the spots are full, you may miss out on this year's opportunity to be included.  Please read through the registration and cancellation policy. 


*For those from out of town, there are plenty of options for hotels in the Ontario and Covina area off the 10 freeway, which puts you about 5-10 minutes to each field.  The closest airport is Ontario Int'l Airport, which is about 20 minutes east of the fields.


Clinic details: 

  • Cost: $220 if registering on or before Dec 9th (early bird registration), $260 after Dec. 9th
  • Dates: Dec. 29th and 30th
  • Ages 14 through college or grad classes of 2017-2023
  • Location and times:
    • Sat. Dec. 29th @ Mt. San Antonio College. 9 am-1 pm
    • Sun. Dec. 30th @ Univ. of La Verne.  12:30 pm- 4:30 pm

Roster spots are limited as our catcher-to-coach ratio will be under  a 5 to 1.   


Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. To pay for the deposit please use SportsEngine's secure site which accepts, Visa,  MasterCard, Discover, or checking account information.  Following the completion of this registration, you will see a charge (deposit) on your card/bank from Next Level Catching Academy (SportsEngine) in the amount of $120 (on or prior to 12/9) or $160 (after 12/9).

There will also be a small $4 process fee for SportsEngine added to the deposit and registration process.  Your remaining balance of $100 will be due when your catcher checks-in on Saturday morning. 


This 2-Day training session will include a pop-time chart and a video analysis for this catching camp.  We will be covering all of the major skills (throwing, blocking and receiving) as well as a few sub-skills (bunt plays, pop-ups, wild pitches, etc.).  There will be plenty of instruction on the mental aspect of the game, managing your pitchers, and leading your team.  The ever exciting 2018 NLCA Catching Olympics will be embedded in this camp.  We have over $350 in prizes to give away to the leaders of each competitive group.  It's great to see our catchers work with some pressure on them and see who leads each of the groups in our four different events.    


Those who register will receive a final confirmation email approximately 9 days prior to the camp.  This final confirmation will have final details about the camp.   


We look forward an amazing back-to-back days of training!


Best Regards,

NLCA Admin

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your registration due to any emergency, please send an email to (or call 909-762-6308).  This will ensure good standing status for future events and will help NLCA plan and adjust the upcoming clinic. 

Cancellation outside of 9 days to the event will ensure you receive a full refund of the deposit.  

Cancellations within 9 days leading up to the date of the event will receive only a partial refund of the deposit ($40), as it will help cover the cost of running the camp (field cost, insurance and instructors for hire).  At times we get a few cancellations and  we ask that you please consider the planning that takes place and the commitment our instructors are making.  As a business we suffer big losses when we get multiple cancellations, thus we must implement the proper measure to balance our low instructor to catcher ratio and the potential loss of revenue when multiple cancellations come through.  


We ask that all catching families understand that the cost to NLCA (for each event)  is completely dictated by the number of catchers that register and that cost does not drop when cancellations take place.  We burden the cost of cancellations as we do not recoup the remainder of the cancellation revenue. 

We appreciate all who enjoy and benefit from our training, and we thank you for understanding.
