LPBA summer baseball camps provide players with a camp experience that is safe, challenging, fun and educational. Over 2000 youth baseball and softball players have participated in our summer camp programs since 2011. Players ages 5 to 13 years old at all levels - beginning to all-star - are welcome. The camp experience includes a daily exercise and agility training routine followed by instructive drills relating to base running, pitching, defense, bunting, outfield play, infield play, batting practice, and other hitting drills.
LPBA is partners with the Chicago Bandits-women's professional softball team. Players and coaches from the Bandits will be on hand throughout the summer to work with our softball campers on hitting, pitching mechanics and defensive fundamentals.
