Be a part of the fourth annual
Yellow Jackets Summer Baseball Camp.
Our camp is designed to teach kids the
fundamentals, philosophies and strategies
of the game of baseball. At the same
time, it is set up so the campers have fun
playing the game that they love.
The day is broken up into two
sessions, with the morning consisting of
primarily defensive work and the afternoon
focusing on the offensive side. We
will take the campers through many of
the same routines and drills that our
college players go through. The campers
will receive technical instruction at each
position followed by drills to emphasize
and practice the points that were just
discussed. There will also be two different
instructional games throughout the
course of the day.
The first game, stickball, is
played toward the end of the morning.
Stickball is a fun throwback type game
that is played with a skinnier wood bat
and a tennis ball. It teaches the players
to "square up" the ball while letting them
have that fun playground type atmosphere.
The second game is a regular
game that finishes the day.
We use this game as an instructional
opportunity to teach players the appropriate
plays in each situation. Coaches are
instructed to take time between plays to
make sure players know the situation that
is in front of them.
This camp is an opportunity for
kids to develop their baseball knowledge
and skills. It is also an opportunity to
make new friends, increase social interaction
and have a great time.

We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection".
We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps.
Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
