Baseball camp with the Flying Squirrels

A great opportunity for some summertime funn (and coaching) for Nutzy’s youngest fans.

I know, I know, there’s still snow on the ground. How can I possibly bring up summer at a time like this? But believe it or not, now’s the time to start getting some plans lined up for your kids’ summer vacation–lest July comes around and you find yourself plum out of things to do and eight more weeks until school starts.

Richmond Flying Squirrels games are the place to be during Richmond summers, so why not give the kids an insider’s look? The Flying Squirrels are offering two summer baseball camps this summer, each including instruction from Squirrels coaches and players…

For boys and girls ages four through eight, they’re offering got the FUNNdamentals Camp where the kids will learn the rules of the games, positions, and basic skills. FUNNdamentals is scheduled for August 20th and 21st from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the The Diamond.

Boys and girls ages seven through 14 can take part in the Flying Squirrels Baseball Camp, a more advanced option where they’ll focus on improving basic skills, practice technique, and run through game-like drills. Participants will also have access to indoor batting cages and position-specific instruction. Baseball Camp is offered in two sessions (each session covers the same material): Session I on July 8th, 9th, and 10th; and Session II on August 5th, 6th, and 7th. Camp meets from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM at The Diamond.

The cost for FUNNdamentals is $125 ($115 for a second child). Baseball Camp is $175 ($150 for a second child or if you’re planning on doing both camps). Camp registration fees include lunch each day and four tickets to a Flying Squirrels game. The kids will also get to participate in an on-field pre-game parade on their last day of camp. Awwwww…
