Cubs Baseball Summer Camps
In addition to instruction and gameplay during our normal camp hours, we also offer several different add-ons to help your camper further enjoy their Chicago Cubs Baseball Summer Camps experience! Your camper will get the chance to improve their offensive and defensive skills while receiving more personalized instruction to help them develop their game.
Hitting Lesson – Whether your ballplayer is a beginner or an experienced ballplayer, our coaches will tailor the hitting lesson curriculum to improve your ballplayer’s swing and help him or her find increased success at the plate. While we will focus on hitting drills during regular camp hours, we will highlight specific areas in need of improvement during our 45-minute small group lesson that can be carried over into every drill, competition and live game throughout the rest of camp and into your ballplayer’s game. These lessons are offered Monday through Thursday and have limited availability
Pitching Lesson – Command the mound after a lesson with one of our expert pitching coaches! Ballplayers can use the drills and exercises they learn during their 45-minute session to improve their game when taking the mound for their little league and travel ball teams. Our small groups foster an individualized approach to the lesson. Our coaches hone in on each ballplayer’s mechanics and customize the teaching style accordingly. These lessons are offered Monday through Thursday and have limited availability.
Blast Baseball Personal Swing Trainer – Get ready to take your ballplayer’s swing to the next level! With this new add-on, your ballplayer can track and visualize the results and metrics of their swings. The Blast Baseball Personal Swing Trainer sensor attaches to the bottom of your bat and will help track metrics specifically designed to help improve swing speed and bat path. The sensor will continuously store data from all swings, even those taken not in Bluetooth range of a cell phone and will transfer them to the Blast Baseball app on your phone once reconnected to Wi-Fi. The app also includes training videos outlining tips and drills for better performance. Sensors are recommended to be worn on the knob of your camper’s bat throughout their camp week but can also be used well into your ballplayer’s career, long past the end of the camp week!
- The Blast Softball Personal Swing Trainer will also be included as an option within our registration platform. The softball version of this sensor collects all the same data and provides all the same benefits as the product outlined above, metrics are just scored/presented in comparison to softball averaged metrics to help clearly align with the sport your camper aims to pursue.
- AM Extension – Our staff will be ready to go every day at 8:00 AM! If you would like to drop off your ballplayers(s) off early, our staff will be waiting on the diamond.
- PM Extension – If you need a little more time to pick up your ballplayer after camp concludes at 2:45 PM, members of our camp staff will be on site until 6:00 PM each night. Each ballplayer will be given a snack before we start our PM curriculum which includes a variety of physical and mental preparation activities!
Please note: extended hours are a convenience option and not a continuation of camp curriculum.
