Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
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."
— Bob Altieri, Head Baseball Coach Coach
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."
— Robert Spratt, Head Baseball Coach Coach
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."
— Ralph Pacifico, Head Coach - 22nd year Coach
