American Heritage baseball camp focuses on the basic fundamentals of the game. Players learn the proper techniques for catching, fielding, throwing and hitting. Campers also play games to teach the players in-game situations. The camp is perfect to build the foundation of our next generation of baseball players. Our camp is for ages 12-14; players are grouped by skill levels. Campers will have fun playing baseball, participating in speed and agility training, and relaxing in the pool and at the arcade. Every Friday we will post pictures to our Facebook page, so parents can see the players in action.
