8 Weekly Camps: June 22 to August 14, 2020
9am to 3pm Monday to Friday
with Aftercare available 3pm to 6pm
Due to the COVID-19 Restrictions, we are not going to be able to offer drop-in or daily registrations for the Summer Camp. Once restrictions are lifted, we will make drop-in and daily registrations available.
We begin our 12th year on Capitol Hill. Both beginners and experienced ball players are welcome and will be challenged, encouraged and instructed. Players can expect a safe, fun and instructive environment featuring two games a day. Our staff, comprised mostly of camp alums, make sure every player age 4 to 10 gets at least 100 swings in batting practice per day.
As part of our safety procedures, we will have a retired Metropolitian Police Office on staff from 8am to 4pm everyday. They will work closely with the staff to oversee child safety procedures, both on the field, at lunch and on bathroom brakes, at all times.
We work closely with the Payne Elem School staff and have access to the cafetera and indoor space in case of severe heat or bad weather. All campers will be escorted by two coaches at all time to the restrooms at Payne or Watkins.
We want every player working on volume repetition- which simply means teach the skill then get round after round of ground balls, fly balls or batting practice. In a typical day, campers can expect a minimum of 75 to 100 ground balls and fly balls. Most camps over teach and under volume. Our approach takes more coaches and equipment, but we feel it’s the best way.
We feature two games per day and we group by age not ability. This develops peer leaders and allows for baseball and social growth with teammates the same age.
