MB Sports & Nike Baseball Camp Curry College Milton, Massachusetts
The NIKE Baseball Camp at Curry College will be offering three weeks of camp for the summer of 2014! This camp covers all facets of the game including hitting, fielding, base running, and team play! Campers will work hard and meet new friends from across the U.S. and abroad!
The camp is directed by Mehdi and Maria Belhassan. Mehdi has owned the camps since 1995, and prior to this was assistant director to the camp, starting in 1989. As a former tennis professional, and a father himself, he knows the values and dedication it takes to give “the best sports instruction.” Mehdi resides on campus throughout all camp sessions, and quickly gains the respect of all the campers.
Maria directs all office and customer service operations of the camp. Maria is the background force, organizing summer events, registration packets, and the many other aspects to putting together a great summer production! Maria is available via email, and during the year the 1-800 number rings to her cell phone. Our policy is that every parent should be 100% comfortable by the time they drop off their child to our camp.
