Equipment & What to bring:
Players should bring their gloves, bats, helmets (if they prefer their own), cap, sunblock, baseball attire, cleats, sneakers (in the event we have to use the blacktop during unexpected weather), catchers gear if you want to work on catching and sports drink/water. Baseball/Softball pants are recommended but athletic shorts are okay for very hot weather. A complimentary T-shirt will be given to each player and should be worn daily to camp. Additional shirts can be purchased for $15 at checkout or during the week of camp. Sizes are: Youth M or L and Adult S, M, L, or XL
Players should check in about 15 minutes prior to the start of the first day. You will receive a reminder email a couple of days prior to the camp. Our goal is to begin promptly at 9am daily so we ask that you please allow extra time for travel to camp.
Camp Waiver Information/Medical Concerns:
A release form will be part of the registration process. It is also available here Download Waiver Form
Please print, fill out, sign and deliver this form to the registration check in on the first day of camp. You will be unable to attend camp without this form. Copies will be available as well. If your child has any allergies or other medical concerns, please make our staff aware and provide the proper directions and equipment necessary in the event of an emergency.
Players should pack a lunch each day. We typically break for about 30 minutes around 12pm daily. Ice water will be provided throughout the day for players to refill bottles. It is encouraged that players bring a bottle for water.
Slip and Slide Day:
As long as we have permission and the facility has water access, one of our stations on the Wednesday of each camp week is a slip and slide station! Players are NOT required to participate but most cannot wait for this day! Players should bring a bathing suit, towel and any other necessary clothing to participate. Players are NOT permitted to run onto the tarp and are encouraged to slide head first. We cover the art of the slide and the proper way to execute it safely. We will discuss this and remind players the first two days of the camp week.
Wiffle Ball Tournament:
On the first day of camp players are randomly placed in a small group of 6-8 players and given a team name (one of the teams in the College World Series). This team competes in various challenges and competitions throughout the week including a wiffle ball tournament that happens every day after lunch. On the last day of camp all teams compete in a skills challenge that tests what they have learned throughout the week. The team that scores the most total points wins CAMP CHAMPS and is awarded and recognized at the closing ceremonies.
We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers within 7 days of a camp, however you will receive a credit to be used for a future camp or private lesson should you decide to cancel. Every effort will be made to get each full camp day completed. In the event a full day is cancelled we will use the Friday of the camp week as a make up day.
