The camps run Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include 30 hours of instruction packed with competition, camaraderie, learning and fun.
"It doesn't matter if your athlete is six and picking up a bat for the first time or 14 and is the best shortstop for the Tri-State's top travel team, this camp will profoundly improve each player's ability to play the game," said Tim Rappe, the executive director of the Reds Baseball Camps.
All camps include special instruction from a Reds coach plus a guest appearance by a current Reds star.
Campers will be given a full Reds uniform (jersey, pants, hat and belt), four tickets to a 2012 Reds game and a special graduation certificate commemorating his/her attendance at the inaugural season of the Cincinnati Reds Baseball and Softball Camps.
On one of the five camp days, participants will be transported by bus to Great American Ball Park for a VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the bullpens, dugouts, batting cages, media room, broadcast booths and clubhouse.
Each camper will get to compete in a skills competition with the championships held at Great American Ball Park. Campers will also have their swing recorded and analyzed by the camp video specialist using the same technology used by the Reds.
The Reds are committed to creating a world-class baseball instructional experience for boys and girls, and parents and coaches who love baseball and softball as much as we do.
