Professional level baseball camp run by "real" professionals
"Professional level baseball camp run by "real" professionals! There are many baseball camps available, but this camp is the only one I can recommend to enthusiastic players and their parents. Thank you very much."
Genuine, Knowledgeable Coaches
"My coach surpassed my expectations as a coach and as a person. He is very genuine and knowledgeable about the sport of baseball."
Quality Individual Instruction
"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."
Gave Me Some Perspective Of My Playing Level
"The camp was very fun and informative and really gave me some perspective of my playing level. I will definitely try to come back next year and try to bring some friends."
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."
My son enjoyed the camp tremendously! He loved the chats and questions about baseball. He has been around the game from an early age since he has an order brother who played and played @ the college level. He may be 14 but has mentally been ahead of others his age. He won the award for Wisest for his age! Don't laugh but I had to explain what this meant and afterwards he replied well I do know baseball. This is now our new family joke. I want to thank all the coaches and assistance for the time they spent with Drake. It was worth the expense for the experience.
True passion for baseball
My son had a very enjoyable time at camp! He has a true passion for baseball and was happy to be surrounded by other boys and coaches who share his drive and love of the sport! This was his first overnight camp experience and it went very smoothly! He is attending another Nike baseball camp at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington next week! He is creating memories and being encouraged to continue working toward his dream through your camps!
