At U.S. Baseball Academy, young players can enjoy a real spring training experience.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the return of Ascension Christian High School to its lineup for the coming winter and spring. Registration is now under way at

U.S. Baseball Academy's Spring Training 2015 provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs with instruction by the area's top coaches at the area’s top facilities. Players who choose multiple skills qualify for discounted session prices.

U.S. Baseball Academy's 2015 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 220 sites across the United States. The session in Gonzales runs Jan. 4-Feb. 8 at Ascension Christian. Ascension Christian head coach Paul Burgard will direct the program. Instructors will include a staff of the area’s best coaches.

With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area's best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it's the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can't get in a summer league.

Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year's camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited. Complete details and times for each site, as well as registration forms are available online at www.USBaseballAcademy.comor by phoning toll free 866-622-4487.
