In our 20 years of serving the baseball community, we've come to realize how important it is to offer a variety of programs. Whether you're a beginner, recreational player or travel baseball star, we have a quality program designed to meet your needs!

If you're a level-headed family looking for quality instruction in a positive setting, the THBA is a perfect fit! Our approach to one on one instruction is unique as we want to preserve the enjoyment of playing and learning the game while still developing skills. We achieve this by loading each session with drills and repetitions and most importantly- encouragement!
One of our favorite programs, THBA Rookie Camps are designed for the most precious members of the baseball community ages 4-5. We keep the ratios small and pour love and energy into every child who attends! We cover all the basics and treasure the opportunity to take part in their discovery of America's past time!
2020 Dates: Available every week of the 2020 summer camp schedule.

Perhaps the most frequently asked question we receive. If your child is age 5-14, is well behaved, enjoys being active, likes learning, excels in a structured learning environment, and wants to spend a portion of his/her summer vacation developing character traits and baseball FUNdamentals, the answer is YES! We have had excellent results with talented travel ball players as well as complete beginners! We have a grouping to meet everyone's needs that ensures safety and maximizes learning & productivity for all!
The key to our ongoing success has always been the people leading the program. THBA Director Brian Justine, MS ED, and his staff clear the PBSO's background screening in advance of annual THBA summer camps. In addition, Justine is certified in First Aid/CPR by the American Red Cross. The majority of the THBA staff are individuals are well known local players and coaches who are former THBA students themselves. Therefore, Justine has been able to vet his staff and narrow the pool of candidates to individuals who best align with the THBA mission of building relationships through baseball. New for 2019, all THBA instructors will be certified in First Aid and CPR.
Every participant is required to bring their own glove and hat. Picky eaters should also pack their lunch each day. It is recommended that each participant brings $3-5 per day for a refreshment/snack at the concession stand. Sunscreen and a water bottles are strongly recommended. Baseball pants and cleats are optional and many of our students do dress in this attire. Shorts, lightweight t-shirt and athletic shoes are recommended.
A popular and important question. Since 2000, we've run hundreds of summer baseball camps here in sunny south Florida. Through those experiences, we've learned simple best practices to keep our students refreshed and safe in the summer warmth. We start by meeting in the shade each morning and stressing the importance of staying hydrated. Next, we take a 10 minute water and shade break every hour from 9am-11:30am. Then, at 11:30, we take a 30 minute AC break inside the suites at Roger Dean where we recap the lessons learned from the morning. From 12-12:45, we eat lunch and rehydrate in the Cassidy Cool Zone. Following our cool down period and lunch, we resume the afternoon program from 1-3, again, taking water and shade breaks every hour. Our balanced and sensible approach has helped us keep thousands of young players fresh and energized playing the game they love on beautiful, sunny summer days in south Florida!
Camp continues rain or shine! We have a series of exciting indoor activities planned for those rainy south Florida summer days we occasionally encounter. Activities include: indoor training drills, classroom style learning sessions, baseball trivia, baseball card art contest, baseball pen pal project, and more! Our first priority is the safety of our students so we will not stay on the field if the weather is threatening.
A lot! In addition to 5 days of award winning instruction at the area's top facility, THBA attendees receive: a snow cone party at Bahama Bucks, membership to the Fins and Feathers Kids Club at Roger Dean, athletic performance training session with SAS Jupiter, lunch daily, Friday pizza party from Baldino's, opportunity to play on the main field at Roger Dean all day Friday, weekly skill assessment, ticket to Friday night Hammerheads/Cardinals game, autograph and photo with Marlins/Cardinals player and more!
