Frequently Asked Questions

1. What sets Spring Training apart from other camps?

– Since 2004, Spring Training has run camps with two goals in mind: 1) Foster an active lifestyle for young athletes while giving them the means to improve their skills and their love of sports. 2) Provide a positive learning environment that teaches not only new physical skills but also important life lessons such as maximum effort, teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect for others

– Our coaching staff is comprised of many of the finest coaches and educators in the country. Spring Training’s head coaches have graduated from some of the most prestigious college and universities in the country and are all dedicated communicators who are passionate about providing a memorable camp experience while developing both the mental and physical well-being of every camper.

2. What qualifications do your coaches have?

We have 3 levels of coaches on every field and all coaches goes through a comprehensive training process before taking the field each year. Our head coaches/field coordinators (Level 1) are all responsible and energetic adults with many years of teaching and/or coaching experience specifically with children ages 4-12. We are thrilled to announce that this summer, every one of our head coaches/field coordinators has been with Spring Training since our first summer of camp in 2004. Our Assistant Coaches (Level 2) are comprised of current college students and older high school students who have not only excelled athletically, but also show a passion for teaching and positively interacting with kids. Our Junior Coaches (Level 3) are part of Spring Training’s “Coach-in-Training” program are all 14-16 year olds who have attended our camps in the past, have bought into our teaching philosophy as players, and want to continue being part of the Spring Training Family as young coaches.

3. What is the daily schedule at camp?

– Drop off for all full-day camps begins at 8:40am and pick-up is at 3pm.

– Throughout the day, campers will participate in skills, drills, competitions, and live games from 9am -12pm, followed by a lunch break from 12pm – 1pm. The afternoon activities will start at 1pm and conclude at 2:45pm in time for our daily wrap-up and awards ceremony. We schedule plenty of water and shade breaks throughout the day to make sure that campers are staying hydrated and are not overheating.

– Drop-off for all half-day camps begins at 8:40 and pick-up is at 12pm. Daily schedules will be adjusted for half-day camps in order to maximize our time on the field.

4. What do I need to bring to camp?

– Baseball campers are encouraged to wear baseball pants, a hat, and protective cups, in addition to any gear they would bring with them to a regular practice or a game – at a very minimum this includes a glove. Helmets, bats, donuts, hats, batting gloves, etc are encourage but not required and should have your camper’s name clearly marked on it as one of the way that Spring Training teaches respect for equipment is by making each camper responsible for keeping track of his own gear. Spring Training cannot be responsible for misplaced or lost equipment.

– Lacrosse campers should wear athletic shorts, a comfortable tee shirt, and cleats. All campers should bring their own sticks but we will have a few available.

– Soccer campers should wear athletic shorts, a comfortable tee, cleats and shin guards. Each camper should also bring their own soccer ball

5. How are campers grouped during the day?
