COLUMBIA, Mo. - The 22nd annual Mizzou Baseball Winter Camp is open for registration, as announced by the program on Friday (Sept. 13). The camp will consist of three separate two-day sessions, beginning Dec. 26 and running through Dec. 30. The camp is open to baseball players from grades 9-12. The cost of the camp is $290.
The Winter Baseball Camps are directed and staffed by the University of Missouri Head Coach Tim Jamieson. Coach Jamieson will be aided by Assistant Coaches Kerrick Jackson, Matt Hobbs and Dan Pietroburgo. The camp staff will also include other college coaches along with current and former Mizzou baseball players.
High school age players from grades 9-12 are eligible to participate. Instruction will center around hitting, pitching, fielding, baserunning, team offense and team defense. All hitters and pitchers will be individually videotaped and reviewed with an instructor. Each session is identical and will cover the exact same material.
In the 21-year history of the camp, over 420 campers have gone on to play professional or college baseball. Twenty-three of Missouri's current players attended Mizzou's Winter Baseball Camp.
A team concept with 6-7 players per team will be utilized. Groups may sign up as teams for a discount or if a camper signs up as an individual he will be placed on a team. These teams will compete in games and game situations both offensively and defensively. Recognition will be given to the top performing teams.
Cleats are allowed in Devine Pavilion. Turf shoes, tennis shoes, cross-trainers are also acceptable. Bring your own fielder's gloves, and personal items. Catchers should have their own catcher's gear with them. Batting gloves are highly recommended.
The cost of the Missouri Winter Camps is $290. This fee includes dinner on Day 1 and lunch in Day 2 during camps I & III. During Camp II, lunch and dinner will be provided on Day 1. In addition, each camper will receive a Missouri Baseball T-shirt or a hat. The NCAA prohibits an MU booster (other than a parent/legal guardian) from paying any portion of a camper's camp fees.
Space is limited for each session and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve a space, the registration form must be filled out completely with parent signature (incomplete or unsigned forms will be returned). Team assignments will be made at check-in at the request of each camper. If you are registering late or wish to walk up, please call the baseball office prior to your session.
A refund minus a $50 service fee will be made only for medical reasons when accompanied by a physician's letter. Should the camper leave during camp for medical reasons the refund will be prorated. If this situation occurs, please contact the baseball office. No other refunds will be rewarded.
Safety and Insurance
Experienced trainers are available at all times. Each camper is covered by health and accident insurance during camp hours. Insurance coverage is secondary to primary insurance. You must fill out the indemnification and medical treatment forms to complete your registration.
The Comfort Suites-Columbia at the U. of Missouri will be sponsoring camp and provide a discounted rate of $85. Ask for camp rate when calling for reservation. All players must be accompanied by an adult in order to stay at the hotel. Housing is not provided as part of the camp fee.
