Chicago’s Championship Baseball Academy

The idea of the Academy is to provide players a training environment where they can realize their goals of improving as a “Complete Baseball Player.” Top level training along with advanced methods, allows a young player’s potential growth in areas that normal team training does not allow. This concept is about the player’s development in all facets of the game. Whether you are a beginner or advanced player, you will receive hands on, intense baseball training.

Our goal at the Chicago’s Championship Baseball Academy is to offer an advanced level of instruction in a safe, controlled, fun environment that will enhance the player’s opportunity to reach his/her maximum potential.

Our baseball camps and showcases are a great opportunity to take your game to the next level. Each camp is hosted by our college staff here at University of Illinois-Chicago.
