Q. Can my son attend your camp(s) if he is just a beginner in baseball?
A. If your son has the ambition to get better and has some concept of the game of baseball, then he is more than welcome to attend camp(s).
Q. How many camps should my son attend?
A. Infield play is about repetition. The more double plays turned, the more deflections, the more ground balls he can take the better he will become. We recommend attending as many camps as you can. The good ones attend at least 2 camps annually. The best infielders don’t miss a camp. Our goal is to find kids who are driven to improve and want to put in the time and effort it takes to be the best infielder around. Once we find those kids, or those kids find us, we will do our best to help them develop into possible prospects. So how many camps should a player attend? That’s up to you.
Q. How do I know which camp(s) to choose for my child?
A. We give a description of what each camp is all about on the registration page. It would be best to read through them. If you still have questions, give us a call and we will help you choose which camp(s) would be best for your child. Anyone is welcome to sign up for our Hitting Camps. However, those are limited and fill up very fast.
Q. Do you discount when signing up for multiple camps?
A. Yes. When you put the specific number of camps in the cart (required for discount), it automatically gives you the discount. If you have multiple children that wish to attend multiple camps or if you wish to attend every summer or winter camp, contact us as we can give you a bigger discount.
Q. Can you explain your Camp Alumni on the home page?
A. These are some former high school players who have attended our camps for years and are now playing college baseball. These are not players we have coached on a select or high school team, or had visit our facility. These are players we’ve had a big hand in developing as infielders and hitters. Feel free to speak with any player or coach in this region to get feedback on Coach Eilmes. His reputation of developing the best infielders is getting stronger by the minute.
Q. Can my son come to your camp if he is left handed?
A. Yes. Lefties can attend any Hitting Camp we offer. If a lefty decides to attend an infield camp, he is welcome to. He can participate in any and all drills. However, when it’s time for pre games and freeze outs, he will only play first base. You never see lefties playing middle infield or third at the high school level, or beyond.
Q. What should my child bring with him to camp?
A. The first thing every individual needs to bring to an infield camp is a baseball glove and a bat to a hitting camp. Each participant should look like a ball player and wear a baseball hat. Our infield camps are on field turf in the summer and astro turf in the winter. We recommended turf or tennis shoes to any/all of our camps. Kids should come to camp dressed comfortable. Shorts or baseball pants with shirt tucked in are recommended for all of our camps. Parents, please mark all equipment with your child’s name so there is no question as to whose piece of equipment is whose. Kids should bring some sort of fluid as our camps provide a good work out. So it is important to stay hydrated. Sunscreen is a good idea for our summer camps.
Q. How will I know I successfully registered?
A. You will receive instant confirmation when you sign up for a camp.
Q. What forms of payment will you accept?
A. Check, money order, cash, all major credit cards along with PayPal.
Q. Can my son come to your camp if he is 6 or 7 years old?
A. Most likely no. Our camps are very fast paced and usually the youngest ages are around 8 or 9. But I will say maybe. You need to get pre-approval from Coach Eilmes. You can call him at 509.863.4605.
Q. What is your refund policy?
A. Money back guarantee! If your plans change and you can’t make the camp in which you have signed up for, you can either accept a camp credit towards any future Premier Mitts camp of your choice or request your money back. Money is secondary to us. We want to make sure you are taken care of. If, for any reason, you are not happy with our services you can receive 100% of your money back. We are so confident in what we do, that we have a money back guarantee. Give us a try, you have nothing to lose.
