All players and staff must wear a mask when in close proximity (ie meetings, instructional talks, close contact with players). Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the day and we will take several breaks to sanitize and clean equipment during the camp day. The coaching staff will be enforcing a 6ft proximity rule. Although, we cannot guarantee players will remain 6ft apart at all times, our staff will do their very best to enforce this rule.
Players will have a chance to win On Deck merchandise (hats, shirts, etc.) and an opportunity to win baseball cards throughout the week. The last day of camp will run as a Camp Olympics day. During the Camp Olympics, players will be split into teams and will compete in different games (Target Tee, Bunting, Throwing Accuracy, Ground Ball Games, and more). We will award a few Camp MVPs on the last day in different age groups. Camp MVPs will win On Deck merchandise.
All players must have a signed copy of a waiver form on the first day of camp. You can also sign and email a copy to
in advance. Waiver: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
Every day each camper will have instruction in the areas of groundball fielding, fly-ball fielding, hitting, throwing/pitching, and team fundamentals. We will also play different games and competitions. We will not play full baseball games.

Infield Play: Defense wins ball games! Very few indoor baseball training facilities in the country have the space to focus on defense. We have turf areas inside as well as a full sized infield outside.
Pitching: The staffs focus’ first and foremost on the mechanics of pitching. Proper mechanics lead to consistency and help prevent injury. Advanced players have the opportunity to learn not only proper mechanics but the mental approach to pitching.
Hitting: A major league approach to hitting from former and current professional players. Our staff is brings years of professional baseball & softball experience. Fundamentals of hitting for the beginner all the way up to the mental approach to each and every at bat to advanced player is what we teach.
Catchers: Catching is the most important defensive position in baseball and when it comes to training is often neglected. Our instructors will help you maximize your talent behind the plate by teaching you the best technique in regards to receiving, blocking, footwork, and throwing.
NEW GUIDELINES PLEASE READ: Players must be dropped off for training sessions. No parents are allowed at cages during the session. The coach will meet all players at the gate by the parking lot of the Babe Ruth Field. At that time players will walk with the Coach to the cages. At the end of the session the Coach will walk the player back to the parking lot.
We appreciate everyone's patience as we work through these new guidelines. All players must have a signed Waiver Prior to Starting Any Training Sessions (found on the link to register at On Deck). If you have any questions please feel free to email us at Training@ondeckacademy.com
