Arizona Summer Pro Baseball Camps

Attention youth and high school players around Phoenix this summer. The 16th Annual Phoenix Area Baseball Camp is designed to provide players intense instruction in all aspects of the game.  Our camps are known nationally for a "non-standing around" approach meaning players get the maximum amount of work in daily while receiving verbal assessment of their skills throughout the week.  Our daily formats are written by directors with years of Professional baseball backgrounds and mirror a Spring Training type day. Huge reps and teaching all day long with live games mixed in.

 

Our baseball camps in Arizona are staffed with former and current professional players, college coaches and scouts who are extremely experienced and share one common goal - to provide you with the tools you need to take your game to the next level and beyond.  Eat, live and breathe the game with us while we train daily at ACU Firestorm Baseball Field in Phoenix, Arizona.

Cancellations and Refunds

What if I have to cancel a camp?
We do not offer refunds on canceled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection". We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
