Rated #1 Camp 'For Kids Who Love Baseball' - SSR SPORTS
Welcome to the Rising Star Baseball Camp (New York Baseball Camp) located in New Rochelle, NY. This New York based baseball camp draws athletes (boys & girls ages 4-15) from Long Island, Westchester County, the Bronx/Queens, and Connecticut. While many campers enrolled in this baseball camp reside in Scarsdale, New Rochelle, Larchmont, Pelham, Bronxville, and Mamaroneck, numerous players come from all over the tri-state area. Several campers have come from other countries, including Japan, Finland, Ireland, Bahamas, Scotland, Hong Kong, and Nigeria (Africa).  The camp is held at Albert Leonard Middle School (click for directions) in New Rochelle. 
The baseball camp program is split into five separate age categories: Prospects Three Hour Program (ages 4-5)*, Rookie Ball (ages 6-8), Single A Ball (ages 9-10), AA Ball (ages 11-12), and AAA Ball (ages 13-15). *Note: Prospects Program runs 9:00am-12:00pm during session IV only. Among the various day camps in Westchester County, the sophisticated drills and activities are unique compared to all other area baseball camps in New York. An excellent camper to coach ratio combined with instruction from coaches with college and professional playing experience has helped the camp produce one active professional player, several current college baseball players, and dozens of high school players.
