The Milwaukee Brewers are proud to announce the second season of the "Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip." The Academy is open to youth (ages 6-14) and includes 10 separate weeklong baseball/softball camps that will be held in various cities across Wisconsin this summer. A complete schedule of camp locations and dates is listed below.
As in 2013, the camps will be conducted under the supervision of Tim Rappé, executive director of the Brewers Baseball Academy. In last year's inaugural season, 650 participants took part in the camps.
"In 2013, we set out to create the best baseball camp in America for Wisconsin kids," said Rappé. "Based upon the feedback from parents, our first season was a wonderful success and 2014 will be even better."
Each camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. with instruction provided by experienced youth coaches. During one of the five camp days, campers are transported by bus to Miller Park for a one-of-a-kind experience as they will be treated to a guest appearance from a current Brewers player and have their photo taken. Campers will also receive instruction from Brewers coach John Shelby.
A unique component of the Brewers Baseball Academy is that a video motion analysis of each participant will be performed. Every camper's swing will be recorded, analyzed and shared with the player and his/her parents. In addition, all participants will take part in a baseball or softball skills competition. Each week, scores will be posted at Brewers.com/camps and upon completion of the last camp (August 18-22), the top scorers will be invited to the Champions' Day Finals at Miller Park. Boys and girls will compete separately in appropriate grade groups.
The fee for the weeklong camp is $395 per child, which includes 30 hours of exceptional instruction, a complete Brewers uniform, four Brewers game tickets to one of three select games - compliments of Kwik Trip - and a V.I.P. day at Miller Park.
Registration is currently available at Brewers.com/camps. Registrations received prior to March 31 will receive a $25 discount. This discount may not be combined with any other discount. If registering two or more children, each child will receive a $25 discount if booked together. A limited number of spots are available for each camp location.
As the presenting sponsor of the Brewers Baseball Academy, Kwik Trip will award 240 random participants with $25 gift cards to their locations. One lucky camper from each host city will also receive a personalized camp jersey, along with a special presentation during the camp graduation ceremony.
