    Anxiety eliminated

    August 21, 2017: My son was apprehensive about the camp because he was on the older side (age 12) and never played for a competitive league. All of that anxiety was eliminated on the first day. He enjoyed the camp and the opportunity to advance his skills in a supportive environment. He had a wonderful experience with the coaches and the other kids in the camp. He completed two weeks of camp and came out feeling much more confident about playing baseball. As a parent, I enjoyed arriving a little earlier to pick him up on the first day and saw the kids cheering him on as he was running the bases. All in all, it was a great camp and experience for my son.

    Coach Lessler was terrific

    August 10, 2017: I was concerned at first to hear the previous coach was leaving Cal, but Coach Lessler was terrific, extremely friendly and helpful. Luke got to play and have fun. He would do it again, and he is picky!

    Nice to have so many coaches

    August 8, 2017: It was nice that there were so many coaches so the boys could work in small groups and not have too much time waiting for a turn during drills. There was also a nice balance between skills and games.

    Games Camp

    August 7, 2017: My son had a lot of fun at the games camp, he loved the continuous play. He was happy with the overall skill level with the 11 & 12 age group. The games camp is great option instead of just basic skills especially for the more experienced baseball players.  My son is 10 and he loved the fact that he was able to play up with 11 and 12 year old age group. They pushed him and challenged him.

    Came out THRILLED about baseball

    August 5, 2017: My son went into camp pretty interested in baseball and getting better at baseball, but he came out of camp THRILLED about being better at baseball and had a strong desire to continue to improve his skills. His interest in baseball has skyrocketed (partially due to the baseball cards he received as prizes during camp, which were awesome!), and he has already asked to go back next year as a full day camper.

    Coaches were the highlight

    August 1, 2017: The highlights of camp were definitely the coaches and real game experiences provided for the players. They received constant feedback on their performance throughout the week in the skills stations as well as the game play. It was an excellent camp-well run and coached. Coach Sanfilipo did an exceptional job running the camp. He was not only present at all times but was very hands on with his coaching staff as well as the campers. It is extremely evident that the goal was to improve the players' overall skill sets, provide constant feedback, and ensure that the campers will not only return but intend to be future Bears. Furthermore, his communication and respect to his assistant and player coaches was impressive. It is clear that it is a well run program through and through.

    Reinforced his love for baseball

    July 27, 2017: As this was the first time with your camp. My son and myself found it to be a positive learning experience. This was his first year playing baseball and to have this camp helped him immensely. Not only did it enhance his skills it also reinforced his love for baseball. Continue to do a wonderful job. I appreciate the patience and experience the staff had with the kids. The safety and welfare of the kid's came first. I have already recommended this camp to my friends kids.

    Well taken care of

    My so was definitely onesie the youngest campers in attendance. With that being said, I felt very comfortable that he was well taken care of and receiving instruction appropriate to his age level. In the future, I think more time should be spent on the first day doing "get to know you" and "learning name" activities. I think this will build more friendships.
