More Details On Each Session

Hitting Session: A perfect mix of “new school” sabermetrics/hitting-analytics paired with old school fundamentals, our hitting program has been proven to help ballplayers of all ages get better and hit with more confidence. We teach campers what to think, how to have a plan, and how to succeed as a hitter in any level. We also take the time to build the right habits as we fix and critique problem areas. We highly recommend you select the video swing analysis as an add on because it gives us the ability to spend extra time looking at each kid’s swing and emailing you our long-term recommendations with video examples of what we’re talking about.

Fielding Session: Our fielding session is all about getting good, quality reps. Combining the best new coaching tactics from Division 1 Collegiate & Professional ranks, our coaches have compiled just the right drills and fundamental teaching points to help each fielder take his defense to the next level.

Baserunning Session: Baserunning is more important than ever for those hoping to gain a college scholarship in baseball. Our staff has compiled just the right thoughts that should be going through your head at each base in each situation. We are excited to teach the cutting edge tactics that are helping ballplayers steal more bases, advance on more passed balls, and score on more singles from second base. Baserunners will also learn leads when/how to tag, secondaries, dirtball reads, and stealing tactics taught by the pros.

Pitching Session: We teach you how to win the chess match with the hitter, and how to locate the right kind of pitches at the right time. Our locator technology motivates any pitcher to start seeing the strike zone as a grid with spots to strike any hitter out. We integrate techniques to help pitchers throw more strikes, and throw harder. We are very proud of our pitching program, it’s the culmination of a lot of years of baseball know-how paired with the best of baseball’s newest technology and advice.

Catching Session: We refine the skills of each catcher, working on pop times, receiving, blocking, communicating, calling pitches, and more. Catcher is the fastest route to the big leagues, so we encourage every catcher to prioritize their defense with an ironed out ABC routine with many borrowed from MLB & Division 1 Catchers.

Velocity Improvement Training

We will be using exit velocity and throwing velocity on pitchers & hitters at this camp as a part of our player improvement program. We will be using Pocket Radar’s newest technology which lets us see exit velocity and hitting/pitching mechanics at the same time. Those that purchase the video analysis at this camp will benefit from this technology. There is no guarantee that non-video analysis campers will have their velocity measured.

 

College Recruitment (for High School Group)

For players that are identified as college-ready by camp coaches, we will put together a recruitment sheet and send it to a large number of colleges on their behalf.

FAQ

What if the weather is bad?
Our winter camps are located indoors, in order to run in all sorts of weather.

What should my camper wear?
We are asking campers to wear baseball pants for this camp. If they don’t have them, they can wear shorts. Turf shoes work best, if you don’t have them sneakers will work just fine. Molded cleats also work very well on turf, we ask that you don’t wear spikes.

What baseball equipment should we bring?

Anything that you might use in a typical game. Catchers make sure to bring your gear.

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?
Not at our winter camp.

How does lunchtime work?
We will not be offering lunch.

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 confident 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. Our ABC Wichita Winter Camp is a place where a good ballplayer can get 6-18 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.
