Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Coaches were fantastic
July 5, 2017: The coaches were fantastic - nice, personable, energetic, engaging, knowledgeable and always kept it fun. All three of my boys had an excellent time. Thank you very much for such a positive experience. The facilities, coaches and program was very well run and age appropriate. The spirit was to ensure the kids had fun and enjoyed their experience - all of which they did. The only suggestion may be to emphasize technical skills a bit more. But thats it. Well done.

Every young baseball player should attend this camp
"This was a very good camp. I would say every baseball playing child should go to this camp or one similar."
Quality individual attention
"I was impressed that the coaches worked with us individually. At other camps it was almost always as a group. They covered everything about baseball and even introduced me to some new strength training exercises. I enjoyed the camp very much."
