A few words from our partners . . .
Skip Bailey, Monroe (NY) CC, Coach, AD, and ABCA Committee Member: "U.S. Baseball Academy hit a home run for our baseball program. We have been running camps for over 25 years and this one was our best. I thought their ad was too good to be true, but I'm glad I made the call. We earned thousands of dollars for our baseball program, and all our staff did was show up and coach. They did the rest. They do a great job advertising, organizing the camp rosters and setting up the drills. As a bonus, you get plenty of free equipment that you get to keep. The drills were great for player skill development, and they were fun for both the players and coaches."
Val Keiper, Head Coach, Concordia (WI) University: "Participating in the U.S. Baseball Academy program for the first year in 2004 was like a godsend to me. As both a faculty member and coach I do the equivalent of at least two full-time jobs on a very limited budget. Fundraising is always an issue, and I really don't have the time to set up and market camps and clinics. With this program, the Academy did all the marketing work and I got to enjoy my passion - sharing baseball with kids of all ages."
Brad Allen, Head Coach, St. Joseph-Ogden (IL) HS: "Prior to developing a partnership with U.S. Baseball Academy our clinics were moderately successful. But they provided us the opportunity to teach baseball to more players in the area than we could ever imagine. The growth we have seen in just two years is remarkable. Their staff provides the most thorough and professional support anyone could ask for. U.S. Baseball Academy has made a huge impact on our program, as well as players from surrounding communities."
Steve Farley, Head Coach, Butler University: "We've enjoyed a very successful partnership with U.S. Baseball Academy. Our winter camps have been sold out each year. The administrative staff is highly organized and efficient, making these camps very low-maintenance."
Craig Antush, Coach, Youngstown State University: "U.S. Baseball Academy made six weeks of instruction feel like it lasted only six hours. The kids not only progressed, but it allowed parents to become better educated about baseball. With a variety of drills offered each week, each camper developed a better understanding of the amount of work required to become a quality ball player."
Brian Blondell, Global Scouting Bureau, South Bend, IN: "Working with U.S. Baseball Academy over the last two years has been the greatest relationship ever. They have made raising money so simple. All we have to do is coach. The compliments from parents are countless. We have become the place to go for baseball because of the them."
Mike Kashirsky, Coach, Robert Morris University: (Hosted while at Moraine Valley CC) "U.S. Baseball Academy is the best, hands down. Their staff has been amazing to work with. Fundraising and camps are very important to our program. We wanted to surround ourselves with great people in building our program, and we did just that. Working with USBA was one the best moves we made."
Bart Davis, Head Coach, Eaton (OH) HS: "The organization and attention to detail was great. I believe the format of the camp creates the best learning environment."
Troy Berry, Head Coach, University of Findlay (OH): "U.S. Baseball Academy has been nothing but great for our program. It helped build relationships within and around our community, and has been a great fundraiser. They do all of the leg work and we get to do the fun stuff: coach the kids. I highly recommend getting involved with them."
Shane Schellsmidt, Head Coach, University of Dubuque (IA): "We have done winter baseball camps for many years, and this was the first year that was completely stress-free. They took care of all the leg work, which allowed my staff to concentrate on our team. I highly recommend U.S. Baseball Academy! They will surely make your job a lot easier."
Michael Bedics, Head Coach, Notre Dame (Easton, PA) HS: "The money we have raised has allowed us to upgrade our facility and our equipment without the headaches of running countless fundraisers. U.S. Baseball Academy has provided a positive experience for parents, coaches and, most important, the players involved. We look forward to each year."
