UBC Thunderbirds Baseball Classes, Programs, and Events

These are new baseball programs for Spring/Summer 2019.

UBC Thunderbirds Youth Summer Camps – Powered by Rawlings

Coaches: Mitch Hodge, Tyler Enns, Vinny Martin, Jeremy Newton and Varsity players

All players will receive a UBC Thunderbirds New Era hat and Under Armour shirt!

Rawlings will be providing several great prizes for the coaches to give out each week!

The UBC Baseball Youth Summer Camps were a major hit last year, and we are we are looking forward to an even better summer is 2019! Be sure to register your little leaguer for a baseball camp experience that they will never forget!

The Thunderbird All-Skills Camp is the place to be to keep your little leaguer’s season going through the heart of summer! Your young baseball player will get the chance to experience the state of the art Rose Indoor Training Centre and Tourmaline West Baseball Stadium. Each day, players will learn the fundamentals and advanced techniques of pitching and fielding. Coaches will educate the players on proper footwork, glovework and pitching mechanics throughout the morning followed by a competitive pitching and fielding activity. In the afternoon, the camp will be designed to develop each player’s offensive skills in hitting and base running. Players will focus on their mechanics, game knowledge and hitting approach at the plate. The day will conclude with competitive games and testing the players on what they learned throughout the day. Hitting a home run at the Rogers Centre or Fenway Park will become a reality with our HitTrax Hitting Simulators. Campers can take some swings off the Pro Batter pitching machine, and see how they can handle a curveball! There is no better way to spend your summer vacation than the Thunderbird All-Skills Camp!

For half-day baseball camp options, register for the Thunderbird Fielding and Pitching Camp or the Thunderbird Hitting and Base Running Camp.
