Brewers Baseball Academy to debut
Area youth camp to feature visit to Miller Park and instruction from Brewers coach
Milwaukee - The Milwaukee Brewers are proud to announce the inaugural season of the "Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip." The Academy, open to youth ages 6-14, will include eight separate, weeklong baseball/softball camps held in various cities across Wisconsin this summer.
The camps will be conducted under the supervision of Tim Rappé, executive director of the Brewers Baseball Academy.
"Our promise is to create a world class Milwaukee Brewers baseball experience for every camper," Rappé said. "Regardless of skill level, the camp will profoundly improve each player's ability to play the game of baseball."
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 will be transported by bus to Miller Park to meet a current Brewers player and have their photo taken.
Campers will also receive instruction from Brewers coach John Shelby.
At the academy, 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 or 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 12-16, 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 instruction, a complete Brewers uniform, four Brewers game tickets to one of three select games and a VIP day at Miller Park.
Registration is currently available at Brewers.com/camps. Each child registered before March 31 will receive a $25 discount. A limited number of spots are available.
As the presenting sponsor of the Brewers Baseball Academy, Kwik Trip will award 120 random participants with $50 gift cards to their store. One camper from each host city will also receive a personalized camp jersey, along with a presentation during the camp graduation ceremony.
In addition, two registrations per host city will be given away through a promotion at Pick 'n Save stores throughout the season. For information, visit participating Pick 'n Save locations.
