The quality of the camps is a product of professionalism, organization, friendliness and the ability to provide a baseball education, regardless of skill level, in a fun, positive and encouraging environment.
The staff of KBC consists of college and high school coaches who are experienced in baseball education and educators who work on a daily basis with youth. These coaches are assisted by college and high school players. The knowledge and experience that the coaches share with their campers will make them better baseball players and improve their self-esteem.
Schedule permitting, Louisville Bats players will visit campers, sign autographs and hold a short clinic.
On Thursday, all campers will take part in Baseball Olympics. Campers will compete in such events as longest hit, fastest pitch (determined by radar gun), fastest runner, longest throw and best fielder. The top three campers from each age group will receive gold, silver and bronze medals.
KBC is for campers 7 to 13 years old. Players will be placed in groups according to age, size or skill level for optimum safety and enjoyment. Players will be given a T-shirt and hat on the first day of camp. Campers will be served a lunch with drink.
On Thursday, players will be given graduation certificates at the medal ceremony after camp. All campers are invited as a group to attend a Louisville Bats game at Slugger Field in August.
