CHRISTMAS CAMP

For Boys & Girls (Fast Pitch) Ages 5-18

 

Give your child the gift of baseball with a holiday camp experience they won’t soon forget! For 26 years, Cincinnati Baseball School has offered the number one Christmas camp in the Tri-State area by teaching our CBS System while providing a fun and memorable experience for each and every camper.

 

Just because it's cold outside there's no reason to hang up your cleats and put away that glove.  Get together with your friends, improve your game and get ready for Spring Training.

The CBS System takes the guesswork out of baseball instruction, helping young athletes build muscle memory and learn proper mechanics. The System player develops all of their tools — hitting, fielding, throwing, pitching, base-running, mental toughness and tactical strategies.

 

The CBS System is fun and engaging, designed to appeal to even the youngest players. It features lots of live batting practice and a scrimmage game at the end of each session and is a great way to make learning fun.

 

Turn baseball into a year-round sport and make the winter months as much fun as the summer ones at The Cincinnati Baseball School Christmas Baseball Camp.
