FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

There doesn’t seem to be an option to pay just the $100 deposit?

In order to speed up check in on the day of camp, we have gone to 100% pre-pay.

We have also cut the time down for refunds to 3-5 business days. In the event that you need to cancel, we can return all of your funds (minus the $100 deposit) back to your credit card relatively quickly.

Will the scheduled times change at all?

It’s very possible! The main instruction area we'll be using for our winter camps is the indoor football facility (Neyland-Thompson Sports Center). As such, we may have to adjust times around football's bowl practice schedule or have to work around the weather. As such, the times may be altered at the coach’s discretion to facilitate instruction. Any time changes will be posted immediately on the camps website.

An e-mail will also be sent to the e-mail address you entered when registering. Please check the camp's website prior to departing for the camp and check your e-mail often as camp approaches.

Are there any hotels near campus that have discount rates?

Coming Soon!

Where will the camp be and how do I get there?

Our winter camps will be held on the University of Tennessee's main campus in Knoxville.

We will be using three main buildings for the Christmas Camp: the Neyland-Thompson Sports Center; the Health, Physical Education & Recreation building (HPER Gym) and the batting cages at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. Please familiarize yourself with the campus layout using the above link prior to attending the camp.

If you need addresses for your GPS, simply click on the building you need on the campus map.

When and where do we go to check-in?

For those registered for the pitching option: Check-in will begin at 9:30 am at the North entrance to the Health, Physical Education & Recreation building (HPR Gym) along Andy Holt Ave. The earlier you arrive the quicker you can be processed and admitted.  You will not need to recheck-in for the main camp.

What should I bring?

Campers should bring their glove, batting helmet, bat, and batting gloves - please make sure everything is clearly marked. Please bring tennis shoes, as cleats are not allowed in any of the indoor areas. If you are signed up for the catching option, you should bring your catching gear (on the second day). Also, please make sure your child has appropriate cold-weather gear to get between buildings, as well as, to and from your vehicle.

There will be a lunch\dinner break on the first day where parents can take their kids to a large number of local restaurants or campers can bring their own sack lunch. There will be no lunch break on the second day (to allow campers more time to commute home) so campers are encouraged to consume a filling breakfast and bring a small snack for the mid-camp 15 minute break.

Pitchers DO NOT need to bring someone to catch for them at any of our camps

What happens if there is an injury?

We will have a certified trainer on site to deal with any injuries. Unlike past years, campers will need to have their own health insurance to participate. Providing the name of your carrier and policy number is part of the registration.

Can parents stay and watch?

Absolutely! However, parents are asked to stay off of all instructional areas.

What is the cancellation policy?

Full refund (minus registration fee) available if cancellation by email occurs by 9:00pm EST, at least 7 days prior to your scheduled event. If within 7 days, a 50% refund will be given due to cancellation. No refunds will be issued after the event has started.

Will there be a camp store to purchase UT Softball merchandise?

Yes, a camp store will be available before, during and following the camp. Campers will be able to purchase a variety of UT softball clothing and merchandise. The store will accept cash, Visa or MasterCard.
