The end of the year is fast approaching, which also means the Christmas holidays are almost upon us!

We’ll be using this post to keep track of all the baseball camps and other fun activities available locally, as well as around Sydney, for our kids.

Sports Camps Australia in conjunction with Baseball NSW are running camps at Jannali:

These camps are a great way for the kids to extend their skillset with coaches from Baseball NSW outside of their usual training nights and game time, as well as to make new friends. Every camper receives an Under Armour t-shirt and will be coached by staff from Baseball NSW. All coaches are accredited with working with children and first aid qualifications.

For details of other SCA baseball camps across Sydney, head here (note, not all have been finalised as yet). You also can read a bit more about the benefits of these camps over at Baseball NSW.

NxtGen Baseball are running a Baseball Camp from 7-year-old T-Ball players right through to 12-year-olds, at Apsley Jan 7-8.

This camp is suitable for all skill levels. Coaches, Ryan Rowland-Smith and Trent Oeltjen, cover every aspect of the game from hitting, pitching, Infield, outfield. They also host their famous NxtGen Homerun derby!
