Kids playing baseball

As a young person who loves the sport of baseball and wants to improve your skills, you should attend our summer baseball camp. Yearly, young players learn to enjoy the sport because our coaching methods work on individual skills to improve your ability to hit, field or pitch. Attending our camp will improve your confidence. You will enjoy the game more as your skills improve. Plan to spend some time with us this summer and enhance your performance. Many former campers have experienced success at the high school level and gone on to play college and professional baseball. This camp is open to any and all players between the ages of 7-13. Camp is open to any and all entrants limited only by age, number, grade level and/or gender.

COVID Protocol

SIU is committed to protecting the community, so current campus and state pandemic safety protocols will be followed. For more information on SIU’s response to the coronavirus and university guidelines, view our coronavirus website. The wearing of face coverings is encouraged but not required in most settings. However, masks will still be required in some situations. Per the university’s agreement with the Faculty Association, if the instructor specified a mask requirement in their syllabus at the beginning of the spring ’22 semester, masks will still be required in that classroom and/or lab. Face masks are required where regulated by government entities such as public transportation and health care settings. Thank you for your consideration and cooperation!
