We are excited to welcome Indio as a full staff member this summer. Indio was both a camper and Instructor-in Training at the East York Baseball Camp. He has honed his baseball instructional skills with some EYBC staff alumni (Miles Vermeel and Phil Tsiaris) and is now ready to inspire the next generation of players back where it all started for him. Indio has expertise as an outfielder and catcher and loves the game!
An elite shortstop who has played with both the East York AAA Minor Midget and Toronto Mets Midget Teams. Jackson, while being a gifted athlete, is exceptional at being able to help elevate the level of play with those with whom he works. He is a very positive, helpful and caring instructor who maintains the excellent reputation of the camp and clinics for effective instruction in a fun environment.
While Shanwa has many elite baseball and softball awards and has been an all-star and National Champion, perhaps her greatest accomplishment is her ability to connect, organize and teach baseball, particularly with our youngest players. Her players love her and listen to her and develop noticable skill improvement. We are lucky to have her and hope that she will be with us for many more years.
As exellent a person as he is a catcher, Jason is always willing to do whatever is necessary to keep his campers and clinic registrants engaged in fun and challenging activities to help them learn. Jason is a level headed, great teammate that we all appreciate having as part of our team.

Grant is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He is a very bright, personable and helpful instructor who knows how to individualize instruction to his campers to maximize their success. While not working at the camp, Grant is an accomplished pitcher and outfielder for the elite EY teams he plays on. We are lucky to have Grant before he hopes to start saving lives as a doctor!
