Robin Guiver is looking forward to being part of the Humboldt Crabs youth camp in Crescent City again this year.

Guiver, head coach of the Crabs, and several players from the team will teach both girls and boys from 8 to 14 years old valuable baseball skills beginning Monday.

"It's always a lot of fun to go out and work with the kids," Guiver said about the camps, which are held throughout the summer at different locations. "We want to help them become better baseball players."

Camp participants will learn from Guiver and the players on how to improve their fundamentals in all aspects of baseball – from hitting to pitching. Games will also be part of the three-day camp, which will be held at Del Norte High School

Guiver, who is in his third year helping at the camps, said he enjoys seeing the excitement the kids get from being with their friends – both old and new – and having the chance to play baseball on a summer's day.

"It gives them a chance to learn from real experienced ballplayers," Guiver said.

The Crabs team consists of college baseball players, many from Division 1 programs.

Any skill level is welcome – all the child needs to bring is an interest in the sport, and wanting to learn how to improve their baseball fundamentals, Guiver said.

He added the players are from a variety of positions and that whatever a child wants to learn how to do better – be it pitching, catching or hitting – a player with that expertise will be at the camp.

Also, his sister lives in Smith River, so Guiver said it will be nice to visit her and her family while conducting the camp.

The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday and from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Wednesday.

The cost is $50 per student. Discounts are available for families who sign up more than one camper.

Camp applications are available at the Crabs Website at www.humboldtcrabs.com, or by calling the Crabs hotline at 826-2333.
