My 11-year-old son has tried many sports and activities over the years but nothing has ever captured his interest. He was fond of just about everything but didn’t love anything. This summer, we signed him up to play house league softball with a buddy, and I think we may have hit the jackpot! He can’t wait to get out there to play (too bad it’s only once a week) and watch his beloved Toronto Blue Jays play whenever possible. Imagine his excitement when I told him that we registered him for Blue Jays baseball camp at the Rogers Centre!
The Blue Jays Baseball Academy is once again partnering with Baseball Canada and Little League Canada to get young athletes out to learn the game from Blue Jays alumni such as Roberto Alomar, Devon White, Jesse Barfield, Lloyd Moseby and Tom Henke. The Blue Jays Honda Super Camps are ideal for boys and girls 9-16 years of age and runs across 25 locations in Canada during July and August.
Camps are half day and depending on location, either 2 or 3 days in length. The cost for the 2-day camp is $190, $245 for 3 days and $265 for the Toronto camp. At time of posting, registration is still open for all remaining sessions, including Toronto.
DS may not know who these former Blue Jays greats are, and to be honest I think my husband and I are more excited to see these players than he is, but he knows that he’ll be learning from the best, most of which are World Series champs.
Let’s play ball!
