Frequently Asked Questions
Participants should wear what they would if they were going to their teams practice or game. For all indoor baseball or softball clinics please wear tennis shoes, not cleats or spikes.
Some gear will be provided or can be borrowed. If you have your own, please bring whatever gear you would normally need to play a game or practice. Always bring a water bottle and a snack.
Camp cancellations will be handled on a case by case basis. Most will receive a camp credit toward a future camp, clinic or lessons. This credit is good for one year after which the camp fees will be forfeited.
Yes, if you have multiple children that would like to attend the camp or clinic, we discount the fees. The discount varies from camp to camp and is designated on the registration page. Team discounts are handled on a case by case basis and you can email Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and questions.
For camps with 50 or less participants the ratio will be at least 10 to 1. For camps with over 50 participants the ratio will be approximately 8 to 1.
We start off each day with a professional style warm up that lasts approximately 15 minutes. After the warm up, the players will throw to get their arms loose. We then do position specific drills for pitchers, catchers, infield and outfield. After the defensive drill work we then do our offensive drills for hitting and base running. Following the drill work we play instructional scrimmage games. Each day ends with a “Final Thought” that revolves around the mental aspects of the game with topics including sportsmanship, attitude, and effort as well as controlling emotions.
Yes, there are a number of past participants that would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding camp format, our coaching staff and the level of instruction provided at our camps and clinics. You can contact Todd Coburn for those references (email@example.com).
Depending on the time of year we will have former and current professional players, former and current collegiate players, college coaches and high school coaches from around the area. Occasionally we have a current or former high school player as a “helper” that will not do any teaching, only games and/or contests.
Although walk up registration is accepted, pre-registration is requested. A pre-camp phone call is required for walk up registration to let us know you will be coming. “Early Bird” camp fees are typically less expensive than late registration so it is recommended that you register as early as possible. Additionally, many camps have a limit to the number of participants so it is recommended to register early so you are ensured a roster spot.
It is not only allowed, it is encouraged. We love to have the parents observe during our camps and clinics. You are welcome to observe from the bleachers during the drills and game time. If we can help the parents to gain more knowledge so they can reinforce and pass along the information to the kids, we’re all for it! We just ask that you stay in the bleachers or “side lines” and not come actually on the field. We don’t want anyone to get hit by a bat or ball. Thanks for your understanding.
