Arizona Baseball Camps this Holiday

Our staff is dedicated to making your stay the single most important week in your baseball career. The purpose of America's Baseball Camps is to teach the fundamentals as well as the advanced skills of baseball to various age levels, helping each participant to better understand the game both mentally and physically. Joining us will also allow players to further develop individual skills through instruction, individual and multi-player drills and game experience as well as interaction with players off the field in a comfortable camp setting. Players will work hard but have fun at the same time.
Last year our Holiday Camp had 140 players from 23 different states represented. This camp is open to all individuals, groups, partial to full teams and organizations regardless of experience. Teams and groups have the option to train together as well as play in games together. We boast attendees from all over the U.S and especially welcome our international players and teams from Mexico, Japan, Netherlands, Holland and other locations around the world. Bringing players together for this great game of baseball is what it's all about!

Attention Fly-In Players without parents (ones we are picking up from the airport): Players need to do their best to arrive before 4:00pm on December 26th. If you are attending the hitting camp please do your best to arrive before 11:00am so we can get you to camp on time. If you arrive later than 11:00am for hitting camp this is ok, it will just be a little tighter for us. On the last day of camp, the camp will end at 2:00pm, so schedule your departure out of Phoenix sometime between 4:00pm and 6:00pm if possible, can be earlier if necessary. We would however prefer you to do your best in scheduling your return flight as close to the 4:00pm to 6:00pm time slot as possible.
