Florida Coast Spring Training Fort Pierce, Florida

USSC » Baseball » Florida Coast » Florida » Fort Pierce

Welcome to Florida Coast Spring Training, where for over 30 years we’ve been running Spring Training baseball programs for high school and college teams in the St. Lucie/Fort Pierce area.

We leave no stone unturned in making sure your experience is as productive and memorable as possible...the fact that over 90% of our teams return year after year is proof alone.

Highlights Include

  • Professional personal service
  • Quality facilities
  • Consistent and reliable schedules (no rain outs)
  • Competitive well run games
At Florida Coast Baseball Spring Training we are proud to offer professional fields - nine of which have lights for night practice and games.  Our fields are professionally maintained by our full time maintenance crew. Fields are dragged before each practice, as well as, before games, watered each day, and lined when games are played. Batting cages (with lights) and practice pitchers mounds are also available for teams to utilize for practice and before games.
In addition to game play, each team is allotted time to practice. We feel the practice time is imperative for teams to make adjustments and changes that need to be made.  Teams value this time to get ready for their conference schedule. All scheduling of practices and games are made with input from each coach to better satisfy that specific coach's wants and needs.

The Florida Coast Spring Training camp is the best around.

"The Florida Coast Spring Training camp is the best around. As a Head Coach I never have to worry about scheduling practices, games, umpires, hotel accommodations, fields or eating meals. Vinny and the guys take care of that every year. We tell them what we need as a team and Vinny and the crew make sure we have everything we need 24/7. We have been going to the Florida Coast Spring Training camp since 1996 and are extremely happy with how we are personally treated. They go out of their way to make our week long experience the best it can be. As long as Vinny Carlesi and crew are running the camp we will continue to travel to Ft. Pierce Florida and play at the Florida Coast Spring Training Camp."

The accommodations have been excellent to go along with top notch facilities and a great schedule

"I have been utilizing the Florida Coast Spring Training group for the past 6 years. Vinny and his staff are always available to assist the coaches and team during our stay. The accommodations have been excellent to go along with top notch facilities and a great schedule allows us to focus on our team to prepare for our conference schedule in PA. This is the best place for Chestnut Hill College to prepare our team for the season."

This trip is invaluable to our schools baseball program

"The staff, playing facilities and accommodations at Florida Coast Spring Training are the best around! This trip is invaluable to our schools baseball program. I have been bringing my team here for over 15 years. My players and coaching staff get the most out of our training schedule and games all done in a major league setting. The advance work we do in the Florida sunshine has enabled us to win some league titles and advance in our State playoffs frequently. I couldn't imagine preseason without Florida Coast Spring Training."
