What should my camper wear?
Baseball pants work, but they'll be most comfortable in athletic shorts or swim trunks. We provide the camp t-shirt.
What baseball equipment should we bring?
All baseball equipment. Catchers make sure to bring your gear.
Who does the coaching?
American Baseball Camps hires and trains high school and/or college coaches from your local area. That's the biggest advantage of the program. While most local youth and travel team coaches have some knowledge of baseball, this is a chance for young players to get actionable instruction and tips from some of the highest rated D1 and Pro programs around the country. We maintain quality control by providing each location with our weekly program, providing additional equipment, and training the staff.
Can girls come?
Of course, anybody interested in baseball will get a lot better and have a ton of fun at this camp! Remember, we separate players based on age and general skill level for the best camp experience.
Do your coaches undergo background checks?
Yes, we do extensive background checks on each coach for them to be considered as an American Baseball Camps coach.
Can we pick up early?
Do you perform video analysis on each camper?
Yes, every camper receives detailed video analysis. Players that hit & pitch will get video analysis from Pro Players on each.
