Elite Camp is an advanced baseball program for girls and boys ages 9 to 14 years old who are currently playing at the rep level. Operating Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Sentinel Park, Elite Camp focuses on superior skill development and is geared towards players committed to taking their game to the next level. Our goal is to create an environment modeled after high-school and elite level teams, by providing tailored instruction and a high volume of repetitions. In addition, our expert staff provide constructive feedback through video instruction and individual scouting reports.
True North Sports Camps’ baseball programs are run by North Toronto Baseball Camp, which was started by the founders of True North Sports Camps. A staple in the Toronto community since 2007!
**Summer camps are now over! Please stay tuned for information about our 2019 season! In the meantime, check out our clinics.**
In case it rains, we have access to the school next door, where campers will play baseball-related games and activities. In addition, instructors will lead discussions on offensive and defensive strategies and provide video based feedback to campers.
We operate optional depot bus service if you need help with pick up and/or drop off. Please see Transportation for more information.
