Camps & Clinics, including HS Strength Training

3 Day Camp $125Purchase required to enroll

4-Day Summer Baseball Camp $185Purchase required to enroll

Come enjoy your Summer at Walbeck Baseball Academy! WBA will be holding six youth camps in the Summer of 2018. Three of these camps will focus on hitting; including approach and fundamental movements patterns with emphasis on improving bat speed and batted ball exit velocity (Power Hitting Summer Camp). The other three camps will focus on skill development in a variety of different areas, through a combination of stations designed to challenge the athlete, as well as teaching a love for the game of baseball. Camps will run Monday-Thursday at WBA, with Wednesday being held at Mather Sports Complex.

PLEASE BRING
We ask that each child dress in appropriate athletic attire as well as athletic shoes (NO cleats @ WBA, rubber cleats okay @ Mather). We also ask each child bring a glove, helmet, and bat. Please also pack a small snack/drink.

PARENT POLICY
We are fine if you want to stay and watch, but we ask that all parents remain in the lobby (WBA) or in the stands (Mather). We want the kids to interact with each other and the coaches independently. The lobby/stands will provide a great vantage point for most of the action, but we prefer parents not interact with kids during the camp. If there is ever an issue, please bring it to the attention of one of our coaches and we will be very happy to deal with it immediately.
