summer camps

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
First Camp Starts June 26th

There will be camps on the following weeks:
JUNE 26-30  |  JULY 10-14, 24-28  |  AUGUST 7-11, 21-25

The StrikeZone Academy is offering 5-Day indoor baseball camps during the summer season. Have fun and improve your game over summer break with basic skills instruction in hitting, fielding, pitching, and throwing in a small group setting. Open to ages 7-10.

A Worry-Free Environment:
Camps take place in our safe - and secure - climate-controlled indoor facility, conveniently located in Alexandria - No need to worry about excessive heat and humidity, rain, thunder and lightning, bugs, strangers, or lack of restroom facilities.

In addition to shelter from extreme weather and a secure environment, the StrikeZone features conveniences such as a COLD water fountain, clean bathrooms, a large lunch room, and snacks and cold drinks for sale onsite. In addition, we have features that outdoor fields DON'T have, such as a dual pitching lane with movable mounds, many training aids and equipment, a computer video instructional system, and automatic pithcing machines for hitting stations and hitting contests.

Indoor camps are open to players 7 to 10 years old and run throughout the summer months, providing a wide array of scheduling options. An adult StrikeZone Manager will actively supervise each camp session.

More Than Just Drills:
Our camps feature more than repetitive drills and scrimmages in the summer heat. Each day begins with an informative mini-session covering topics such as: types and features of various gloves and glove care; an explanation of bat types, sizes and materials; on-field positions and coverage zones, etc.

Every day includes a 30 minute lunch break where a baseball video is screened to give campers insight into the history of the game. Numerous fun mini-contests which reinforce skill development are included throughout each day, and allow players to win baseball cards as prizes and keep them motivated. Each day ends with a skills contest, wiffle-ball or pickle game.

Morning Camps with Extended Hours Available:
Camps run four hours long from 9:00 AM- 1:00 PM. Extended hours are also available from 1:00 PM- 4:00 PM for an all-day experience. See a complete schedule HERE. Extended hours feature activities such as games, movies, and cage activities in a free-form environment as opposed to the structured morning hours. Afternoon campers can also use the batting cages and pitching machines as much as they want.

Instructors
Instructors and assistants will have college level playing experience or will be responsible varsity players recruited from local high schools. All instructors adhere to a pre-developed and organized schedule for all camp activities that includes basic skills, a daily subject of focus, and hitting instruction, every day. All camps will be personally and actively supervised on-site by Adult StrikeZone managing personnel.

Code of Conduct
All campers must adhere to a player code of conduct or will be given a time-out or asked to leave the camp. This generally stipulates that all campers must behave in a courteous manner, not throw fits or get into physical altercations, and follow coaches directions. See complete code of conduct here.

Camper Code of Conduct:

1. Players must act in a courteous manner.

2. Players must not throw fits or temper tantrums due to making an out, losing a game or any other reason.

3. Players must abide by the coaches rulings in all activities and contests and not argue calls.

4. Players must follow coaches instructions at all times and participate in the given scheduled activity--that is, players are not allowed to go off on their own, pursue their own activity, leave the facility, and generally disrupt the group.

Players who do not follow these rules will be given a time out period in the front waiting room. If a player persists in this behavior on a continuing basis, they will be asked to leave the camp immediately.

If a player engages in any of the following, they will be asked to leave immediately.

1. Initiating any physical confrontation with another player or coach.

2. Deliberately breaking equipment or throwing equipment in a malicious manner.

3. Using profanity or engaging extreme outbursts of shouting/screaming or threats to others.

If a player is asked to leave the camp immediately, the parent will be called and requested to pick them up on the spot. They will have to wait in the front area, and not be allowed any further participation. The player will not be allowed to return for the remainder of the week and no refunds will be issued for any missed time.

The behavior cited above affects the whole group, disrupts general harmony, and poisons the atmosphere for all the players and coaches. By asking all players to follow these rules we can provide an enjoyable and educational experience for everyone.
