Our most popular youth camp returns in 2020.  Summer Wildcat Baseball School offers the young player the opportunity to prepare for his/her fall season in a fun and positive learning atmosphere. Hosted at our new state of the art baseball facility, Kentucky Proud Park. Our staff will teach each player baseball fundamentals, drill work specifically designed to improve each camper’s offensive and defensive skills, and simulated game situations. Campers will be placed in groups based on grade and ability.  Camp is open to both boys and girls. We will have our water slide day on Wednesday.
Each session has 200 spots available.  Once full, campers will be placed on a waiting list.
Register early and save.

From his first meetings with the players, Wildcats Head Coach Nick Mingione brought a very clear and specific vision to the program: they would be a family, they would focus on developing the “Student, Person, Player” and they would do things that had never been done before. Mingione, his staff and the team did just that in 2017. In his first season at the helm, Mingione’s Cats shined on the field, winning a NCAA Region championship in front of the largest crowd in school history and advancing to a Super-Regional. After the Wildcats posted the most wins by a first-year head coach, Mingione was recognized as the Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year and the Rawlings/Perfect Game National Coach of the Year. Six Wildcats were drafted in the top 10 rounds of the Major League Baseball amateur draft. The unprecedented success on the field was matched by the team’s academic achievements, earning a 3.35 GPA during the fall and 3.25 GPA during the spring season. In Coach Mingione’s second campaign, a record 13 Wildcats were drafted, the most in the country. After the 2018 season, senior catcher/first baseman Troy Squires was recognized as the national recipient of the prestigious Senior Class Award, which honors student-athletes who excel in four areas:  community, classroom, character and competitor. Coach Mingione continues to lead the Wildcats to unprecedented heights, moving into their new $50 million-dollar stadium, Kentucky Proud Park last October.

I’m having trouble registering online can I just call the baseball office and register over the phone?
No, registrations cannot be taken over the phone or in person. All registrations must be made online and paid for using a credit card. Please email or call 859-257-8052 if you are having any registration problems.
I need to cancel my registration; can I get a refund?
If you need to cancel your registration, please email to request a refund.  Refunds that are approved will be less your $50 non-refundable deposit.  You can request a credit (for full amount) towards a future camp by emailing
My child is in Kindergarten, but he is already 6 years old, can he still attend the Wildcat Baseball School?
No. All campers must be entering 1st grade as a minimum nor older than entering 7th grade.
My child attended camp previously, do I have to upload my documents again?
Yes. Each camp has its own separate database and won’t pull info from previous camps.  This is to avoid outdated physicals, or medical insurance changes.
I’m an UK Employee how do I get my discount?
Yes. It’s 20% off total registration. At the end of the registration process you will be asked a series of questions to confirm your employment at UK, at which point the discount will be applied to your total.
Is there a multi-kid discount?
Yes. There is a sibling discount of $20 off.
Does my physical form have to be on the form provided, because I have a physical, but it’s on a different form?
No. You don’t have to use the medical form provided.  If your medical form states that you are physically able to participate in the camp and signed by a medical doctor and less than 12 months old that will work.
My child’s physical expires right before the camp, but I don’t have an appointment to get a new physical until after the camp, and my insurance won’t allow me to get a physical any sooner, what should I do?
Call you doctor’s office and explain the situation, often they will be able to help you.
Physicals are performed at the Little Clinic at Kroger for only $35 (without insurance approval).
Call your insurance and ask if you got a physical before the 12-month mark if they will still cover it. Often insurances have a grace period.
What do we need to bring with us to camp?
The week prior to the camp you will receive an email with more details about what to bring to camp and more.
My child has an allergy, can he bring his/her own food with him?
Yes. Make sure the food is in a food safe container with your child’s name on it.  Have your child let us know if anything needs to be refrigerated.
My child has an epi pen, do we need to give it to the trainer?
No. Your child will need to keep track of his/her epi pen, however, please have that documented on the physical form.
Can parents stay and watch?
Yes. Parents can remain in the grandstand or on the concourse during the summer camps. Parents won’t be allowed on the field or inside the facility.
