U.S. Baseball Academy
Though they operate more than 200 locations in upwards of 30 states, the team behind U.S. Baseball Academy aims to make each young athlete's experience a personal one. Their four- or six-week camps are taught by local instructors who are current or former coaches at the high school or college level, and typically offer a 6:1 or better player-to-teacher ratio for intense, professional-style training. The Academy's proven itinerary of hitting, pitching, fielding, and baserunning drills was developed by an advisory board of college coaches and Major League players, including Cy Young Award–winner and ace pitcher Brandon Webb.

“My son absolutely loved the first day of his hitting session. The coaches were great, extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic, and you could feel their passion for baseball. However, the best part of the day was hearing the more important life messages and lessons these guys were trying to pass on to the kids, about character, make-up, responsibility, hard work...it went on and on, but not in a preachy or condescending way. The message hit home, and for me, that was what made the session great.”
