FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 What should I bring?

Campers should bring their glove, batting helmet, bat and comfortable, weather appropriate clothes - 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 a catching option, you should bring your catching gear. There will be a lunch break each day where parents can take their kids to a large number of local restaurants or campers can bring their own sack lunch. Water and Gatorade will be provided at each station.

Pitchers DO NOT need to bring someone to catch for them at any of our camps or their bats and batting helmets.

 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.

 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.
