Cougar Hitting Clinic has created an environment that will mentor, develop and equip young athletes to help them develop on the field, in the classroom, and at life.
Cougar Hitting Clinic has a pathway for youth baseball players to take the next step in their individual progression.

During each session the athletes will be placed in a group according to their age. Every participant in the Cougar Hitting Clinic will receive instruction in the areas of hitting.

The 2017 Draft class saw a first-round selection, a third-round selection, and a fourth-round selection, while former Cougars Austin Pruitt (2012-13), Corey Julks (2015-2017), Connor Wong (2015-2017), John King (2016-2017), and Jared Triolo (2017-2019) are excelling in the major leagues.

What if I have to cancel a camp?
We do not offer refunds on canceled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called “Cancellation Protection”. We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
