LEGENDS SKILLS & GAMES CAMP (6-12yrs — all skill levels):
Our Skills & Games Camp is one of the most unique and fastest growing sports camps in Northern California. Our famous 6:1 Camper to Coach ratio promotes the most positive and individualized learning environment possible. Private and small group instruction, along with our innovative coaching program combining drills, games and exciting contests, all ensure your child is building confidence and having a legendary time while simultaneously developing their baseball skills.
- Detailed hitting instruction (in batting cages & on-field)

- One-on-one instruction

Players will be grouped according to age, ability & experience, and will be coached on baseball skills and fundamentals – in a Legendary way! Using our innovative coaching program, we’ll spend our mornings working on a variety of areas including hitting, pitching, catching, fielding (infield and outfield play), base running, sliding, and making plays — all while building skills & confidence through fun contests, challenges & games!
In the afternoons, players will be grouped by age and ability to form teams for the week. Teams will play against one another, putting to use the skills they’ve learned in the morning camp into game situations. Coaching emphasis will be on teaching clean catching & exchanging of the ball and developing the players’ baseball fielding knowledge (knowing where to make the play given the number of outs, base runner location, and score of the game.)
ADVANCED SKILLS CAMP – YOUTH (8-12yrs):
The Advanced Skills Camp (Youth) builds upon the skills and fundamentals learned from the Legends Skills & Games Camp, and is designed for those who want a more advanced and technical baseball experience.

Campers will be coached by Top Legends Coaches trained in the Positive Coaching Alliance philosophy, where we develop the whole player, not just baseball skills.
Areas of focus will include:

A letter from the Camp Director:
Going into our 9th year of summer camps, I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have such a loyal customer base hear in Menlo Park and the surrounding area. We have seen such overwhelming support we have now outgrown the fields of Menlo Park and must look to other towns for field space! As a result we are excited to announce we are holding camp in Palo Alto and Redwood City in addition to our Menlo Park location.
Over the years I have befriended and worked with numerous camp parents and their smiling children; I am always genuinely delighted to see camper families return every summer ready to have fun and learn more about the game of baseball. From the 10 kid camps at Red Morton to the 50 kid camps at Nealon Park, there are many who have been with us since the very beginning. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on so many children and their development. As Legends Baseball Camp continues to grow and evolve our objective is to continuously improve and find unique ways to enhance the camp experience. Our continued focus and goals are as follows: (1) engendering a love of baseball in every single camper– from the first timer, to the all-star (2) teaching valuable life lessons through the game and its challenges (3) developing sound fundamentals and confidence through repetition, trust and constant positive reinforcement (4) preach and exemplify our motto for baseball success “have fun, work hard, play hard!”
Although Legends camp has grown considerably over the years, we are committed to generating the same intimate, “small camp” vibe by offering the most competitive camper to coach ratio around (about 5:1). We believe this is a big part of the “Legendary formula” as it allows the children to develop meaningful relationships with their camp coaches and maximize repetitions and individual attention.
Once again, I would like to express how grateful I am for all the support and loyalty we have felt over the years. We wouldn’t have such an incredible community based youth camp and semi-pro team with you! I hope you and your families have a LEGENDARY baseball season and see you this summer!
