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
Baseball pants work, but they’ll be most comfortable in athletic shorts. We provide the camp t-shirts
All baseball equipment. Catchers make sure to bring your gear.
In research for his recent book, our Founder Nick Rotola studied the Sociology between parent and player in the best and worst athletes in the world. Consistently, the parents of elite athletes took a back seat in their players career. Furthermore, the more a parent imposed his/her own passion, the less passion a player had.
We believe that the best way to help players get better and gain confidence is to remove any kind of distraction or hindrance during their time at camp. When before players were looking over their shoulder at a parent now they are looking at the ball. When before they were running to their parents when things went wrong, now they are learning to self-overcome.
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.
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.
Yes, every coach that represents American Baseball Camps undergoes a background & security check.
Yes, at each of our camps early and late drop off are offered for an additional price. You add early drop off and late pick up to your order when you checkout.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When a camper needs to use the restroom, we will make sure there is more than one adult and more than one camper present when a camper goes to the bathroom. Adult coaches will wait outside of the bathroom while campers use the restrooms.
