Summer Slam Hitting Camp
UMBC Baseball Stadium Complex, Maryland
Ages: Ages: 8-12 | Camp Times: 1:00pm
View & Print Camp Waiver
The Hitting Camp is designed to provide the camper with the skills necessary to do damage at the plate and create runs.
Rather than spread instructional time across all the different areas of the game, the Hitting Camp is a two day workshop focused only on the swing. It will be packed with instruction and repetitions.
To maximize the camper's experience there is a limit on the total number of campers per session. If you are seriously interested in attending the camp, early registration is encouraged.
Detailed Camp Description
The same teaching/coaching philosophy used in the UMBC NCAA Division 1 Baseball Program will be employed. We will emphasize the basic fundamentals that must be mastered in order for a player to succeed in his age group, as well as to succeed as he gets older and competition level increases. Instructors will be UMBC Coaching Staff and current/former UMBC players.
• Proper warm up
• Swing fundamentals
• Creating bat speed
• Swing path

Each camper must provide his own baseball equipment. Campers should bring a glove, bat, helmet, and water bottle. Baseball attire should be worn.
Please check your email regularly as this is our primary way we communicate. Any additional information that we need to convey as the camp draws closer will be passed on to you via the e-mail address that you supplied when you signed up for camp.

What if I have to cancel a Clinic?
We do not offer refunds on canceled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection". We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
A medical, assumption of risk, and swimming permission form must be completed prior to the start of the camp. You can bring the signed forms the first day of camp or you can fax it to Coach Mumma at 410-455-1536.
