The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate.

Pitt-Greensburg Location Change Information

February 5, 2016
Players and Parents:

The University of Pitt-Greensburg coach has just notified us of a facility issue that is going to cause the camp to be moved to SATURDAYS for the next 3 weeks. The note we received from him is below.  We are unable to push the camp dates back because the gym floor has to be completely replaced and the completion date for that is unknown.  We apologize for this change, but these are unforeseen circumstances outside of our coaches control.

"Due to flooding in our gymnasium from a busted sprinkler head yesterday, we are now out of a facility for the rest of the foreseeable future, meaning we have to relocate off campus for our final 3 weeks of camp.  I have secured ERA an indoor training facility in Latrobe, PA just 10 minutes down the road from campus."

The remaining dates for camp will be Feb. 6, 13, and 20th.  Your times will be the same.  Please see below for the new facility address in Latrobe, PA.


The address for ERA is:
5924 PA 981
Latrobe, PA 15650
**Note the facility is located at the corner of 981 and Monestary Rd (right behind the BP gas station). Parking is available in the gravel lot.  

If you have any questions, please reply to this email or contact us Monday through Friday, 9 am - 4 pm.

Thank you

Registration for Spring Training 2016 Details

Thank you for registering for a camp that begins this weekend or has already started. Rosters are sent to coaches the Friday before camp so your player will NOT be listed on the onsite check-in roster. This is not a problem. The information below will offer instructions regarding how to handle this at camp.

Step 1: If you have not yet done so, please complete your payment via credit card. You can also request a PayPal invoice to pay with a linked checking account if you prefer check. Unless absolutely necessary, please do not take cash or check to the camp. They can accept them but we want our coaches concentrating on coaching and not keeping up with paperwork. If that is your only option, please use it. But we cannot apply the payment to your account until received from the coach so it will not stop automatic payment collecting procedures.

To pay by credit card, click here.

If you would like to use PayPal, please request an invoice at info@usbaseballacademy.com.

Step 2: Print out your registration confirmation page to take with you to camp. You will also receive s payment confirmation after submitting payment. Please print that also and take with you to camp along with the registration confirmation.

Step 3: All participants are sent final details for camp on Thursday prior to the start date. This information is available by request. Please email us at info@usbaseballacademy.com so we can forward you those emails.

Step 4: Bring your player to camp and enjoy a Spring Training experience with U.S. Baseball Academy. Your player has taken the first step to being game ready from the first pitch of spring.

Five Reasons to attend a Winter Baseball Camp in Millbrook, Alabama

December 23, 2015---The term “winter baseball camp” may seem like an oxymoron, but U.S. Baseball Academy hosts winter instructional baseball camps for nearly 25,000 players each year.  While most baseball players are taking a break or focusing on other sports, winter baseball camps offer participants a chance to improve their game before the spring baseball season starts. Off-season camps enhance player development and give players a chance to learn outside the everyday confines of practice or games.   Here are the top five reasons your player should attend a winter baseball camp. 

  1. Improve your game—instructional baseball camps are a time for players to focus on their strengths and weaknesses.  It’s important for players to set goals for themselves each season and, oftentimes, improving in one area or another is a common goal for players.  Winter instructional camps help players achieve their improvement goals and make gains before a new season starts.
  2. Season Fitness—attending a winter baseball camp helps players get into shape for the spring season.  Most players finish their fall ball season and don’t pick up a bat or glove until spring season rolls around, sometime in March or April.  U.S. Baseball Academy’s Spring Training program helps players get into shape before the season so that players are in mid-season form before the season even starts.  Professional players use “spring training” to get into shape, so why shouldn’t youth players? 
  3. Improve Self Esteem—winter baseball camps are instruction intensive.  Players learn new skills and techniques or refine skills and techniques they may already have.  These new skills improve their self-esteem and help them to feel confident when they start their season.  Since camp settings are educational, players can build confidence outside the normal, sometimes stressful, confines of a game or practice.
  4. “Broaden your horizons”—players can broaden their horizons and learn from instructors they don’t have access to on a regular basis.  Every child is different, so learning a skill (even if they have learned it before) from a different coach may change how a player sees something and the skill or technique may “click” with them, when it previously had not.  Forging new relationships with coaches outside of a player’s daily routine can aid in their social development as well.
  5. Fun—most players that play baseball, do so because it’s fun.  The challenge of learning new skills and the camaraderie of a team make baseball a sport they can enjoy doing.  Winter baseball camps allow players to enjoy the sport they love year round. 

U.S. Baseball Academy takes pride in helping youth players improve their game before the season.  Your local camp will be held at the Mill Creek Baseball Complex in February.  Registration is now under way and, because space is limited, we encourage you to sign up today to reserve your spot!  You can register now and pay later.  Sign up for three skills and save $120 off the one skill price!  Visit www.usbaseballacademy.com for more details.

Play baseball year round with a baseball camp in Littleton, Colorado

December 23, 2015,Littleton, Colorado--Staying fit isn’t difficult for players in an area where baseball is played year round, but for players in locations where they don’t have access to a field or weather prevents playing, staying in shape should be a priority.  U.S. Baseball Academy hosts off-season baseball camps for players looking to keep up their baseball fitness.  These winter baseball camps help players fine tune their skills and get prepared for the upcoming season.

The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers.

Winter baseball instructional camps for players in Findlay, Ohio

December 14, 2015, Findlay, Ohio--Staying fit isn’t difficult for players in an area where baseball is played year round, but for players in locations where they don’t have access to a field or weather prevents playing, staying in shape should be a priority.  U.S. Baseball Academy hosts off-season baseball camps for players looking to keep up their baseball fitness.  These winter baseball camps help players fine tune their skills and get prepared for the upcoming season. 

The baseball instructional camps take place in January and February and are intended to mirror major league “Spring Training”.  Many players come away from camp hitting and throwing better than they ever have before.  Because U.S. Baseball Academy camps are once a week for four or six weeks, players can still enjoy other sports, while keeping up with their baseball fitness.
