What if the weather is bad?
In the case of inclement weather Friday would be a makeup day, and in rare cases of multiple rain out days Saturday and Sunday afternoon would be used as well. For kids in weekend tournaments that weekend, we would issue comparable admission into another camp. For additional inclement weather questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What should my camper wear?
Baseball pants work, but they’ll be most comfortable in athletic shorts. 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 our approved and trained American Baseball Camps Coaches. We ensure quality by issuing post-camp surveys to parents, providing each location with our weekly program, additional equipment, and extensive staff training.
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, every coach that represents American Baseball Camps undergoes a background & security check.
Can we pick up early or drop off late?
Yes, at each of our camps early and late drop off are offered for a fee of $5 per day for early drop-off and $5 per day for late pickup.
How does lunchtime work?
Please pack your child’s lunch and snacks we will not be providing them at camp. However, we will be providing ample time in the shade to eat lunch and have a snack. Your kid will also receive many water breaks and we encourage you to pack plenty of water. We always provide water at camps, but just in case on a hot summer day, we prefer you to pack water as well.
What if my kid is new to baseball? Will he/she enjoy the camp?
Absolutely! American Baseball Camps are all about positive energy and being a good teammate. When ballplayers are good teammates they encourage each other and pick each other up, which makes new ballplayers much more comfortable. On top of that, our hand-picked coaching staff is trained to train each kid at their ability level – not their age level – leaving many kids feeling encouraged and confidence in their own improvement throughout the camp.
What if my kid is an expert baseball player? Will he/she enjoy the camp?
Our premium camp formula and volume-based reps give each and every ballplayer a bump in their game. American Baseball Camps is a place where a good ballplayer can get 6 hours of focused reps in a dream baseball environment.
What is your refund policy?
Cancellations outside of a month of camp will receive a refund minus a $25 cancellation fee. Cancellations inside a month of the camp will receive a credit toward our next winter/summer camp near you – we do this because our camps are popular and fill up quickly, so if your spot is reserved we more than likely turned another kid away. If a pre-camp injury prevents a player from attending, we will refund your money upon receipt of a doctor’s explanation.
What is your coach-to-player ratio?
American Baseball Camps maintains an 8 to 1 player-to-coach ratio at our camps. Last second signups may slightly skew the ratio, but this will not compromise the integrity of the camp or the quality of instruction. We go out of our way to get you the best possible instruction in your area.
What precautions are taken for allergies?
At sign up, we prompt parents to list their child’s allergies so that we can tailor a plan for each camp. Kids are not allowed to share foods and instructors aid to the allergies listed at sign up.
