US Sports Camps (USSC), the official provider of Nike Sports Camps, announced the acquisition of U.S. Baseball Academy, the country’s largest network of youth baseball camps, and its sister company, U.S. Softball Academy (collectively, USBA). As a result of the new partnership, USBA will introduce more camp options throughout the year and benefit from the USSC network of facilities, coaches and directors.
Since its founding in 1988, USBA camp directors have coached over 250,000 aspiring baseball and softball players. All USBA programs feature a low coach-to-player ratio, allowing for frequent individual and small-group instruction to refine and elevate foundational skills like hitting, pitching, fielding, baserunning and catching.
“We’ve stayed dedicated to our original commitment to bring quality instruction to local communities,” says USBA President Joe Marker, who’s been with the company for more than 20 years. “By joining forces with US Sports Camps, we’ll expand our reach even further with more camps throughout the year and continue connecting professional coaches with players in their communities.”
Jeffery Lee, senior vice president of USBA, adds, “With a shared focus on developing young players through high-caliber training, we couldn’t ask for a better partner in US Sports Camps to take our baseball and softball programs to the next level.”
