Camp Description

 

The BSC Baseball youth development clinics are designed to hone your skills in the specific areas of Pitching, Catching, and Hitting.

You can choose ONE of these skills to work on for each 4-week session. These clinics will help you better understand the mechanics involved with each of these skills, offer you expert instruction from the BSC staff, and give you drills that you can use at home to continue to elevate your game on your own.

Each clinic will be limited in enrollment to ensure hands-on instruction with our staff.

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. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
