Camp #1 is complete!! What a blast! We had 28 little ballplayers for our first round (June 10 - 13). Thank you so much to the parents, coaches and players for your support of camp. I hope that everyone had a good time, learned a few new skills, and made a few new friends. Please remember that all who participated in Camp #1 qualify for 20% off Camp #2 (June 24-27). Email nate@backyardrule.com for promo code details.

Please see a few photos below, as well as a short highlight video.


Our days usually began with addressing the campers and outlining today’s goals, games and format. After a brief stretch we would break into 4 groups (made up of 6-8/group) and assign each group a starting station. We rotate stations every 20 minutes or so, each station working specific skills (fielding, hitting, pitching, footwork, etc). The weather was kind to us for the most part, but we did encounter some rain the last day. Thankfully we had an indoor gym to work with, and thankfully Wiffle balls aren’t all to destructive to the interior ;)

Each day would end in a mini tournament, with teams that were drafted by assigned team captains. These team captains were hand picked by coaches, based upon hustle and overall good sportsmanship. If you didn’t get to be a team captain this time, keep working hard and your time will come!

Check out our awesome shirts (courtesy of Yell Yes Screen Printing). On the first day of camp we had each camper/coach initial a piece of paper, which was later printed onto our comfy t-shirts!
