Camp Description: The #FridayFielders Fall Infield Academy is an instructional camp focused on improving all aspects of infield play for a player who wants to be able play infield at the collegiate level. Future Bear instruction will be led by nationally recognized UNC Infield Coach Kainoa Correa, current UNC Infielders, the rest of the UNC Baseball Staff, and 22 College/High School/Club Coaches from across the country. Last Spring, under the Coach Kai's tutelage, Bear infielders ranked second in the conference in fielding percentage, and the overall team defense set the school record for team fielding percentage.

Coach Correa was also a guest infield speaker at the 2017 American Baseball Coaches Association conference in Anaheim, CA and the 2017 Colorado Dugout Club Conference in Denver, CO.
