The Washington University Lil' Bears Camp
is about baseball, but no sport is enjoyable
without it being fun and safe!
coaches will instruct your child on the basics
of baseball, showing them how to field,
throw, hit, bunt, and run the bases with the
utmost of care. We will ensure your kids
experience through drills that are both fun
Mornings are the learning portions of the camp, and we will work with your child on
proper fundamentals in two areas of baseball per day - whether it be hitting, fielding,
throwing, baserunning, bunting, or baseball etiquette. The "lessons of the day" will focus
on sportsmanship, team play, the "art of hustle", setting and achieving realistic goals, and
the importance of being a good student.
Lunch at noon is sponsored by Penn Station Subs and is included in the cost of registration.
Should you wish to send a home-prepared lunch for dietary restrictions or just
because, you can certainly do that too!
Afternoons are all about games. We'll play pickle, run the bases, tee ball, wiffle ball, and
many other baseball-related games that are sure to make the sport more fun for your child.
Again, baseball isn't fun if it isn't FUN!
