Thank you in advance for your cooperation with these timelines, to help us ensure the health & safety of both campers and staff – AT ALL TIMES – TO HELP KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE!
OF COURSE – LABEL EVERYTHING!
Shorts or pants? We like for campers to feel cool and relaxed, thus helping them listen, learn & perform their best! While baseball pants are not required, campers do need to wear athletic attire (i.e. athletic shorts vs. cargo shorts).
Protective Cup: As with any baseball-related event, a protective cup is highly recommended, but not required.
Does my child need his own bat? No. While having a bat is recommended, any bats used by more than 1 camper will be sanitized after use by each individual.
Does my child need a snack? Unless documented medical reasons are provided in writing, this year only, we are asking that children not bring snacks to camp, in an effort to minimize risk.
3. CARPOOL IS COOL (AND WALKING HOME FROM CAMP)! PLEASE JUST LET US KNOW
If someone other than your child’s legal parent/guardian will pick up your child from camp (or your child will walk home from camp), WE MUST RECEIVE WRITTEN NOTIFICATION (HARD COPY, NOT ELECTRONIC), FROM A LISTED PARENT/GUARDIAN, PRIOR TO RELEASING YOUR CHILD.
The brief written notification must include:
a. Child’s name and name of the individual(s) who will be picking up your child in place of the listed parent/guardian on file
b. Date(s) and time(s) the pickup will occur
c. Best phone number in the event we must contact you
d. Signature of the listed parent/guardian on file
*TIME SAVINGS TIP! Many provide us with a “blanket note”, one that lists, or “covers”, the dates of the entire camp week.
We kindly ask all parents to refrain from putting peanut butter or other items processed with peanuts or any type of tree nut in foods and drinks during our camp week.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation regarding the above safety issues and helping us keep all our campers safe!
WEATHER SCENARIOS: THAT’S WHAT OUR TEXT/VOICE BLAST SYSTEM IS FOR!!!
“Rain Delay” – “Heads Up/Warning” – “See you Friday!”
1. “Rain Delay”: During the camp day, in the event of MODERATE/PASSING inclement weather, camp will engage in a “Rain Delay”. Campers and staff will retreat to field dugouts or similar structures (i.e. Gazebo, etc.) for shelter until the temporary rain pattern passes over.
2. “Heads Up/Warning”: In the event of forecasted significant and/or sustained inclement weather, a “Heads Up/Warning” text or call may be sent. A “Heads Up/Warning” is sent when there is a possibility that camp may end early due to significant or sustained inclement weather*.
*A “Heads Up/Warning” message is typically sent a minimum of 1 hour in advance, to notify parents that camp MAY end early that day. If the projected significant or sustained inclement weather continues, only then would you receive a follow-up call/text to pick up your child.
3. “See You Friday!”: In the event of inclement weather that occurs during the overnight or morning of camp, you will be contacted via our telephone broadcast system as to whether or not camp will remain on as scheduled or canceled no later than 8:00 a.m.
As with any parenting or caregiving situation, it is important to have backup plans in place.
In the event of sustained/significant inclement weather that results in an early dismissal, it is highly suggested to ensure alternative plans are in place AHEAD OF TIME, so that your child(ren) may be picked up from camp in a timely manner.
Thankfully, on average, an early dismissal happens just once a summer (average number of summer camp days: between 25-30).
Above all, we plan for your child to have both a safe & awesome summer camp experience while in our care!
The staff at 21st Century Sports has done an excellent job working with all of the baseball programs in our town – from TeeBall to Little League to Babe Ruth & up through the Varsity program – over the last few years. They take a comprehensive approach to the ‘well-being’ of our baseball feeder programs and have helped us instill a systematic instructional program to pass on to both our youngsters and coaches. More imporantly, they have established personal relationships and connections with each of the different baseball programs in our town. This comprehensive approach enables everyone in our baseball community, from the time they are first able to throw a ball until they leave for college, with the feeling that not only have they been provided with the very best possible instruction, but have worked and interacted with our children and parents – as people who sincerely care about the game of baseball as well as each individual’s skill development.
Coach Consiglio opened my eyes to the possibility of playing college baseball. He helped me in all aspects of my game; helping me to improve my skills on the field, my mental makeup about the game, and how to handle the college recruiting process. He was always there to offer honest and straightforward advice and continues to check up once my collegiate career began.
“My son loved every minute of camp!”
Coach Consiglio does a great job in developing the young player. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the game and takes a lot of pride in seeing his players progress. I have no doubt he will lead his staff to undertake this same mission.
“My son is a 15u competitive travel baseball player who was looking to get additional instruction and I came across Coach Bill Consiglio through a camp over a year ago. My son has since worked with Coach Consiglio on many aspects of his game and I have to say that since then, my son has elevated his game and has become more confident. Coach Bill has a unique way of communicating with the kids so they understand what needs to be done. He has coached at the highest levels, including Division I and can very readily see things that other coaches do not. He understands what each child needs in order to succeed, improve and move onto the next level. If you are looking for a coach who understands the game and can help your child improve, I highly recommend Coach Consiglio.”
I fully appreciate the enthusiasm Bill and his staff have in communicating the sound principles of baseball. Far too often in the college recruiting process we see young players who have no understanding of how to play the game. Yet, they are unrealistically in pursuit of a college scholarship. I am not saying that every player who participates in 21st Century Sports will receive a college scholarship to play baseball. What I will say is that Coach Consiglio and his staff will provide players with the proper techniques to give them the best chance to have a positive baseball experience, no matter what level they aspire to play – college, high school or Little League. And as a parent myself, that’s all you can ask.
“Both of my boys raved about the camp. I’ve never seen them so excited every morning to go to camp!”
Thank you for the fabulous baseball birthday party you organized and ran for our son Thomas! As parents who have hosted over a dozen outsourced birthday parties in the past, you should be proud to know that your company threw the most enjoyed and professionally organized party of any company we have ever worked with!
To quote the birthday boy: “My baseball party was the best birthday party I have ever had and ever been to!
Just wanted to let you know that, once again, your guys were awesome.
Professional, kind, and the kids had an absolute blast!
What do you do when your son wants only a Baseball Birthday Party for his 7th b’day?! I NOW KNOW – YOU CALL 21ST CENTURY SPORTS! Their staff was a HOME RUN! From the first time I contacted them to the last minute of the party it was a fantastic experience! Their baseball party team kept my son and his friends not only engaged but excited the entire time! In fact, when the party was over the dads were so inspired that they began their own post-party game! Weeks later parents were still approaching me and saying that my son’s baseball birthday party was one of the best parties their child has ever been to! Thanks so much to the staff at 21st Century Sports for making my son’s birthday party a day he will never forget….AND EVEN COMING UP WITH AN AUTOGRAPHED BALL OF HIS FAVORITE PLAYER! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY & UNEXPECTED!!! We can’t thank your team enough 🙂
“Great program, well organized! Our son learned all about the game. Made lots of new friends. Highly recommended!”
