UBC Thunderbirds Baseball Classes & Programs

These are new baseball programs for Winter 2016.

UBC Thunderbirds Summer Baseball Development Camp

Since its opening in 2015, the UBC Baseball Indoor Training Centre has provided a high level of quality training and baseball specific technology to the community! Our baseball camps for children and youth ages 8-18 are coached by UBC Baseball assistant coaches and many of the UBC Baseball players themselves. We keep our participant to coach ratio small at 8:1 for a more attentive coaching experience. Our varsity players and coaches will provide extensive baseball specific exercises and conditioning to all campers. We hope to see you on the field this Summer 2017!

Please Note: Players are required to bring their own helmet, glove, and bat to camp, as well as their lunch and a refillable water bottle.

UBC Baseball Live At-Bat Experience

The HitTrax Live At-Bat sessions provide the perfect competitive environment for all players to challenge themselves with a large amount of live at-bats in a game simulation. The typical Little League season will have a player get approximately 80 at bats in a 8-week season. It is very difficult for any player to reach their full potential with such a small amount of exposure to live game scenarios and pitching. We have set up a program that is able to provide an additional 200 live at-bats in a 8-week span, with only a single 1-hour session per week!

The program will allow a player to TRIPLE the amount of in-season live at-bats with one session a week!

Team/Organization Rental:

The program can be operated in several different ways:
- Pitching machines (fastballs, curveballs, changeups)
- Coach/parent pitch (from the correct little league distance)
- Player pitch (off of mounds in the cages)
- Any combination of the 3 options
