Camp Curriculum

At Braves Baseball Summer Camps, we share one ultimate goal which is that every drill, swing, throw and eye-popping young fan experience is designed to unlock your child's love of the game. The Braves Baseball Summer Camps curriculum is designed to accommodate all levels of youth baseball players. From young beginners to travel-team participants, and every player in between. Our curriculum creates small group instruction to teach and reinforce baseball-specific skills. Over the course of the week, our curriculum builds upon itself to expose young players to new skills, while simultaneously reinforcing the very fundamentals we've taught throughout the week.

Our objective is to build skills and fundamentals on the field and character and leadership off the field. We believe that summer is a unique time to expand your young ballplayer's comfort zone and build new skills. It's a time for exploration and fun. We're dedicated to achieving this through the power of play and a connection to the team and sport our ballplayers love. Our activities target six critical developmental areas - emotional mastery, optimism, resiliency, self-efficacy, goal setting and determination - all aimed at inspiring each ballplayer's personal best and love of the game.

Age Groups

Young athletes perform best when they feel confident and comfortable. For that reason, we divide our camp into five age appropriate levels. Each level teaches a unique set of skills and encourages its own level of competition. This also ensures that ballplayers get a new Braves Baseball Summer Camps experience each year!

For ballplayers maturing alongside the game of baseball, our curriculum shifts to focus on introducing proper pitching mechanics as many of our ballplayers transition to "player-pitch" in their leagues. In the batter's box, we place a strong focus on seeing the pitch out of the pitcher's hand to emphasize early pitch recognition.
