Camp Details
The Advanced Hitting Camp is a small-group based instructional clinic. Campers will be instructed with the hitting taught at Stanford University. Fundamental swing mechanics will be reinforced and advance drills will be utilized and taught. The coaches’ goal is to help participants develop a knowledge of how to use drills, tools, and techniques to improve their swing. Campers will also utilize Stanford Baseball’s technology to measure and record swing and contact results. Topics of discussion will include launch angle, exit velocity, attack and approach angles, and ways to improve bat speed and strength. Each day hitters will hit on Sunken Diamond and in Stanford’s batting cages.

Equipment
Each camper must bring his/her own baseball equipment. Players should bring a bat, hat, helmet, and wear suitable baseball attire (either baseball pants, sweats/long pants, or shorts). Please bring turf shoes or tennis shoes to hit in the batting cages as spikes are not allowed in the cages. There will be a limited supply of bats and helmets that can be provided upon request. Stanford Baseball camps request each camper place their name and phone number on all equipment and items. 

Medical Staff/Insurance
There will be a certified athletic trainer at Sunken Diamond at all times to attend to care for minor injuries and illness. If a camper gets sick or injured while at camp, they will assess the situation and make the decision of what needs to be done. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or if a camper needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Please make a notation on the medical portion of your registration if there is any medical condition we should be aware of in advance of the camper’s attendance at camp. Our athletic trainer will be available for questions on the first day of each camp and throughout the week.

Insurance information provided on the Medical Waiver Form MUST be accurate. All campers must have their own medical insurance. 

Camp Medical Wavier Form
Each camper must have a completed and signed Medical Wavier Form in order to attend camp. If you register for camp online, the Medical Wavier Form can be completed online as well. If you are mailing in a registration form, you will receive a printable version of the Medical Wavier Form when you receive your registration confirmation email.
