The overnight camps are open to all players ages 9-18. Whether you are playing for the first time or have several years of experience, these camps are appropriate for everyone.
Campers will receive hands-on training on the mechanics of hitting, fielding, throwing, base-running and position play. Discussions on proper warm-up and cool-down, as well as ways to improve speed and agility will be offered. We will also discuss valuable mental training skills for managing success and failure to allow you to play like a champion more consistently. Campers will all get an opportunity to play at Easton Stadium, home of the UCLA Bruins Softball Team, as well as walk the beautiful campus of UCLA.
Competitive excellence night will feature question and answer sessions on how to plan your path to college, fun challenges, as well as discussions on how to become the best you are capable of becoming both on and off the playing field. Enjoy championship highlight films of the most winningest program in Division I history.
Camp fees include a camp t-shirt, certificate of completion and awards. Join us this summer and be part of the Bruin tradition!

The academies will take place entirely at Easton Stadium , with complete access to the Bruin's personalized locker room facilities, clubhouse and hitting facility.

In order to properly group campers, please indicate on the registration form whether your camper is interested in the advanced program or the fundamental program. The advanced program is recommended for players who have had a minimum of one year of playing experience on a high school varsity team, ASA traveling team, or All-Star team. The fundamental program is for less experienced players who are either learning the game as a beginner or who want to improve their skills before trying out for varsity or traveling teams. Coaches will evaluate players on the first day of camp to make sure they are in the proper groups. Teams are framed to teach the importance of teamwork, communication, situational play and competitive excellence. Each player will be placed on a team the first day of camp, and will have the opportunity each day to learn defensive skills for their primary defensive position. There are extra help stations after each session for those players who want more work at their position.
