There doesn’t seem to be an option to just pay the $100 deposit?
In order to speed up check in on the day of camp, we have gone to 100% pre-pay.
Will the scheduled times change at all?
It’s very possible!
The main instruction area for our fall showcase will be at Lindsey Nelson Stadium and we will have to adjust to any weather. Any changes will be emailed to you immediately, and posted on our website, so please check the website for any changes.
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. The times may be altered at the coach’s discretion to facilitate instruction. Any time changes will be posted immediately on the camps website and an e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you entered when registering.
And check your e-mail often as camp approaches.

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 register?
Registration will begin at 8:00 am for the Youth camp and 7:15 am for the High School camp in Neyland Thompson Indoor Sports Complex.
Parking is always an issue on a large college campus. Be careful parking in any reserved parking lot as you may be ticketed or towed. We recommend using any of the metered parking spots spread throughout campus or the University Center Parking Garage. You can also go to the information booth at Circle Park located on Volunteer Blvd. to request a visitor permit during normal business hours.
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 each day where parents can take their kids to a large number of local restaurants or campers can bring their own sack lunch.
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. And out of the elevators at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Is the non-refundable deposit really non-refundable?
Yes. Because we hire staff based on the incoming number of applications, we have to be consistent in making the deposits non-refundable. Also, to stay in line with NCAA rules, we must be consistent in having you understand that the deposit is non-refundable. Regardless of high school sports schedules, making All-Star teams, family circumstances, injury, weather or sickness, it is important that you understand this policy.
What is the cancellation policy?
When you register, you pay the full amount for camp. If you cancel at any time prior to 9pm (Eastern Standard Time) on the evening before camp, we will refund all but the $100 deposit back to your credit card (you should see it within 3-5 business days). There can be no refunds on the day of camp or later.
Will there be a camp store to purchase UT Baseball merchandise?
Yes, a camp store will be available before, during and following the camp. Campers will be able to purchase a variety of UT Baseball clothing and merchandise. The store will accept cash, Visa or MasterCard.
