Arrival Instructions for the second Group
Our team will occupy the second camp slot on each night (9U and 10U have the facility prior to us).
PLEASE do not show up earlier then 5:35/40 (Or 7:10 on November 27). At least don't enter the facility prior to that time frame.
We need to clear out the building from the first clinic and there is not room for all the families. Plus it can get loud and distracting for the first group that is at the clinic, when everyone is arriving and opening the doors, etc.
Parents & Siblings
Parents can attend and watch, but please be considerate of the coaches running the camp. It can get loud and distracting if people are talking. If you must call on phone, please leave the facility and talk outside.
We discourage bringing young siblings to the camp. There are baseballs and bats being swung and thrown and it needs to be a safe and conducive environment for the players and our instructors.
