Stay in the game no matter who you play for with Blue Wave’s Open Mini-Camps for 11U and 12U players every Monday at OC Great Park, Irvine, from 5:30-8:30 PM on Baseball Field 6.
These weekly, three-hour Mini-Camps are open to all 11U and 12U players no matter who you play for, whether PONY, Little League, or another Travel Team. And, if you do not have a club team, we also offer team, game, and tournament options as well.
Blue Wave 11U/12U Monday Mini-Camps is managed by Aron Garcia, one of the top youth baseball coaches in Orange County with more than a dozen years of high school experience locally, including Mater Dei, Northwood, and Crean Lutheran High School (see Bio below).
Each Mini-Camp is only $39, the cost of a half-hour lesson for three hours working with top local coaches and playing with their peers – with and where they learn the most. Multiple-Camp and Team discounts are available.
Again, our Mini-Camps are open to all players so bring a friend or teammate or two and get the extra reps you need to stay a step of the game.
