Experiences

We cover all the bases with three Academy experiences.
Each offers a unique approach to the game. Try one or try them both!

Advanced Player Week (AP), Ages 8-14

Due to the unique instructional format of the Advanced Player Experience, visits by Phillies players and coaches and the trip to Citizens Bank Park are not offered.

INCLUDES

Daily Instruction: Emphasis is placed on team practices and competitive game play. The program aims to take the young athlete to a higher level of play while increasing his/her knowledge of the game of baseball.

Daily Games with Elevated Defensive and Offensive Fundamentals: Daily divisional games allow campers to apply skills from instruction and practice during high-level games. Our coaching staff focuses on proper execution of advanced fundamentals for players batting, on-base and in the field. Games will be regulation youth league games with limitations on innings pitched.

AP for campers ages 6-7: A basic skill instruction program is offered for campers ages 6-7 during this week. This program focuses on the basic fundamentals of hitting, throwing, fielding, and base running. This session includes a special guest speaker, an official Phillies Uniform, and daily games.

Due to the unique instructional format of the Advanced Player Experience, visits by Phillies players and coaches and the trip to Citizens Bank Park are not offered.

Legends Week (LW), Ages 6-14

For campers ages 6-14, Legends Week takes our instructional approach a step further by offering the opportunity to learn from two former Phillies players*. Each camper receives age-appropriate coaching in baseball fundamentals, promoting progression at his/her own pace. Campers can expect a more individualized and focused approach to the core aspects of their game, including technique and game situations.

*Former Phillies players will be available to the campers for a half day.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Meet and learn from two former Phillies players
  • Increased opportunity for individualized instruction
  • Camper Reunion Night at Citizens Bank Park

Please note: Due to the Phillies game schedule and the limited time at Citizens Bank Park, no current Phillies players will be available to the campers.

Coaches/Lineup

Our Coaching Staff

Our campers learn from the very best! Our team of professionals consist of top college and high school coaches and collegiate athletes. Our staff possesses exceptional coaching skills and a commitment to the development of each camper. They encourage campers to reach their own level of accomplishment through a positive, exciting and supportive environment.

Through limited enrollment and a low camper-to-staff ratio, each camper receives the individual attention he/she deserves. Our dynamic staff is dedicated and strives to make a positive difference in the lives of children. We provide college internship opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate staff members, and we offer professional development opportunities for the teachers on our staff. For staff members, ESF (the operator of the Academy) is considered one of the finest training grounds for educators and leaders.
