Which meals are provided?

Dinner for Elite All Skills Camp will be provided both nights.

Can I come and watch my camper?

If you come to the fields you must stay in the stands at all times. This is for liability purposes.

How are the groups divided up?

Due to the number of campers, it is imperative that groups are made up ahead of time from the information given on the registration form (ex. primary position, if they play travel ball, at what level or age group they normally play).

****Pitchers and Catchers are pulled out to work on their positions during defense sessions. Please be sure to register them as a pitcher or catcher to be included in that training.  We can not move them to that position after camp begins. 

The staff will divide first by age and then will adjust at their discretion.  The staff meets to determine if a camper needs to move up or down to ensure safety. Understand that all athletes will be subject to the same drills no matter the group they are in.  If you or your camper have questions regarding their group please have them see their counselor or talk to Coach Yo or one of their coaches. Everyone, no matter the group, will receive the same course of training and drills no matter the group they are in.

Phones available?

We have not banned cell phones, but, we strongly recommend that they NOT bring cell phones or other electronic devices to camp. We can not be responsible for them and they cause more problems than they solve.

The counselors all have cell phone access if the campers need to call home for emergencies. If a camper brings a phone, they are responsible for keeping up with it.

Is there medical staff at camp?

A certified athletic trainer will be on staff during all training sessions and on call in the evening if necessary. 

Our trainers do not have medication to give out, you must supply your own.  Please make sure the trainer is aware of any prescription meds that you are sending with your camper.

ICE and WATER will be provided at all training sessions.

PLEASE DISCUSS ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS WITH THE TRAINER AT REGISTRATION.

We have had problems in the past with campers being "sick" and wanting to stay in the training room all day. We will call you if that is the case. If they are too sick to participate then they should probably go home.

PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD TO CAMP SICK OR WITH AN OPEN WOUND WITHOUT HAVING THE TRAINER LOOK AT IT PRIOR TO YOU LEAVING. 

Any child that has a fever or illness that we feel is detrimental to the other campers will be required to go home. Refunds will not be made once the camp has begun.

Are any discounts offered?

Due to NCAA regulations we can not offer discounts to one individual without offering it to everyone.

What are the indoor hitting facility rules?

There are absolutely NO cleats allowed in the indoor facility. You must wear turf shoes or tennis shoes. Be sure to bring both cleats and turfs/tennis shoes to camps. NO sports drinks are permitted in the indoor facility—only water.
