Description

Meet 6 of the More Than 12 Camp Coaches!

 

“We realized we were under-staffed last year in Kansas City – so this year we decided to bring in the big guns – here are our top 6 coaches coming to KC.” – American Baseball Camps Staff

 

Rob Rotola
Head Camp Director

Pictured here pitching, Rob Rotola loves the game of baseball! There are 3 MLB players to come out of Wichita in the last 10 years & Rob Rotola has coached 2 of them! He has an obsession with the fundamentals which makes him such a great youth coach & an encouraging coaching style which inspires players to play their best! He was our most celebrated camp director last year in Wichita & Benbrook TX Camps & that is why we are bringing him up to Kansas City for our biggest and most well-coached camp ever for American Baseball Camps - Kansas City 2019!

Abel Nieves
Assistant Camp Director

Coming off his final season as a professional where he hit .310 for the Wichita Wingnuts (Same league as the KC T-Bones) Abel Nieves has hit at least .300 in every level of professional baseball. He has learned in the LA Angels Organization (AAA), Dodgers (AA), and Royals (A), and in independent (AA) with multiple teams. He is a kind man and a student of the game. He has had wild success at our camps in Wichita, KS which is why we are bringing him into Kansas City to help direct this camp!

Fred Speck
Assistant Camp Director

An assistant coach at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona - Fred is flying to KC to work with the ballplayers at this camp! He brings an unbelievably positive coaching style which is why we love him for our camps. He's coached College ball, HS, Youth, Played Professionally, Taught Private Lessons -- He's done it all & we're excited to have him in Kansas City this summer!

AJ Johnson
Pitching Coach

The only coach from 2018 that we asked back - AJ Johnson brings an extensive pitching knowledge and incredible attitude to camp! He was offered a D1 scholarship out of Blue Valley North HS. At SIUE he learned the chess match with the hitter, balance, and the ability to finish pitches. These, he says, are the top three things he will be instilling in young campers in Kansas City this summer! We are very excited to have AJ back!

Leo Vargas
Infield Coach

Also traveling in from Wichita for this camp, Leo Vargas was the most consistent shortstop in Wichita Wingnuts (Same League as Kansas City) history! He hails from South Florida where he trained under a legendary infield coach. Leo then went on to play D1 Baseball, then Professional Baseball until 2018 when he retired to the Police Force & Coaching. Leo is an exceptional infield coach who will be leading our Kansas City ballplayers ages 6-12 to better hands, feet, routes to the ball, arm slots, feeds, turns, hop-steps, short hops, long hops, in-between hops, and more!

Jeff Oldenburg
Hitting Coach

Also coming up for the camp from Wichita - Jeff Oldenburg has been a hitting guy his whole life. Successful at the HS, Collegiate, and Professional levels - Jeff has since retired to coaching as he leads the prestigious Life Prep Academy as their Head Varsity Baseball Coach. Jeff's encouraging and positive coaching style is what we loved about him, and his extensive knowledge of the game is what players are loving about him! We are very thankful to have Jeff at this Kansas City 2019 camp!

FAQ

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 americanbaseballcamps@gmail.com

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.

For any other questions please email us at americanbaseballcamps@gmail.com
