The "funnest" camp around
Enjoy three days of baseball competition, skills and fun!! This is the eighth annual competition camp and every year we add new games and fun ways to learn baseball skills. This camp is run by Coach Jimmy Summers with the help from Coach Dante Sabatucci and a few A's players and local high school and college players (as needed).
Competition Concept - the boys will be divided into equal groups based on their ages and they will be competing for the camp MVP in each age group. For each skill that we cover, there will be an opportunity for repetitions followed by a competition in each category. Baseball is a game of athleticism and skill so some of the competitions will revolve around pure athleticism while others will focus more on executing a skill correctly.
