Baseball / Tennis (full day)
Morning Baseball: Experienced coaches and high school baseball mentors will join young players of all levels on the baseball diamond for mornings of pitching, batting and baseball strategy. Baseball players will improve their skills while having fun playing the game. Players in grades K-4 will be divided into varying skill levels to improve their ball throwing, passing, and game skills. Young players will gain confidence and an understanding of how baseball strategy can change during a game depending on the number of outs and the count on the batter.
Afternoon Tennis: After a picnic lunch, full-day campers will move over to the tennis courts to learn all aspects of regulation tennis—including equipment, court dimensions, and scoring. Our coaches make learning the game of tennis accessible and fun for young tennis players. We will also make time for summer water fun to beat the heat!
