UBC Thunderbirds Baseball Classes & Programs

These are new baseball programs for Spring/Summer 2017.

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.
