What Our Campers Say

I CAME TO CAMP WITH A FRIEND FROM SCHOOL TEAM. WE LOVED THE CAMPUS CENTER, SPORTS TRAINING AND ACCESS TO THE AWESOME FACILITIES. THE COACHES THAT WORKED WITH ME GAVE ME THE INSPIRATION TO WORK EVEN HARDER ON MY GAME. I CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK NEXT SUMMER.

Mike K., 2018 Camper

AUSTIN ENJOYED CAMP SO VERY MUCH AND WE TRULY APPRECIATE THE HARD WORK SET FORTH BY ALL OF THE COACHES IN TRAINING HIM. HE SAID HE LEARNED MORE THIS WEEK THAN IN THE LAST 7 YEARS OF BASEBALL TRAINING HERE IN OUR HOMETOWN. ALL OF HIS COACHES WERE "TERRIFIC" IN EXPLAINING EXACTLY WHAT HE NEEDED TO DO TO IMPROVE. AS PARENTS, WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO BE HAPPY AND BE SUCCESSFUL. AUSTIN HAS WANTED TO PLAY BASEBALL SINCE GOING TO HIS FIRST GAME AT THE AGE OF 4. HE LOVES THE SPORT AND WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET BETTER. HE BELIEVES THAT IMG IS THE PLACE TO GET HIM THERE. WE WILL CONTINUE SENDING AUSTIN EVERY SUMMER! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN!
