Sports Camp by Atlanta Playball is for kids in elementary school.
In this pivotal age range, a solid appreciation for sports, health, and fitness is often sparked by providing kids with experiential, non-competitive opportunities to try new things and get out of their comfort zones in a safe, supportive space.
Sports Camp by Atlanta Playball develops and reinforces good habits on the playground and in organized sports settings. We provide fun, targeted activities and opportunities for instruction for kids who want to try a variety of sports and games, and a great chance to try something different for those who already have a sport of choice.
In the long-run, this can set the groundwork for a lifetime of physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices.
Sports Camp is designed exclusively for kids in the elementary school age range.
While traditional Playball programs often work with kids as young as 2-years old, our summer camps are sports based and only for kids in Kindergarten-5th grade. While the ownership of the company is the same, the daily content of our Sports Camps is different from the weekly Playball lesson that your child receives during the school year.
Campers are required to bring their own snack, lunch, and FULL water bottle each day. We will let you know of any allergies in the group closer to the start of camp.
If space is available during the session you'd like to change to, you may do so at no additional charge.
Changing camp locations can be done by refund/re-registration pending space availability. Additional charges may apply.

We strongly urge campers NOT to bring their own equipment as we provide plenty for everyone. Sports Camp is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items that are brought to camp.
Each coach holds a Youth Exercise Specialist (Y.E.S.) Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) which is one of, if not the most difficult youth sports & fitness certifications to obtain. Each coach has no less than 8 years experience working full time in youth sports. All coaches have successfully completed fingerprinted police background checks as required by the State of Georgia, and are certified in infant, youth, and adult CPR. Coaches personal bios will be emailed prior to the start of camp.
All campers will be offered regular restroom breaks and will be escorted to the restroom by a same-gender staff member who will remain outside of the restroom at all times and will not provide any assistance unless there is a medical emergency.
In order to attend our camp every child must be able to identify when they need to use the restroom independently. In addition, they must be able to take care of all in-restroom tasks independently including using the toilet, wiping, flushing, adjusting clothing as needed, washing and drying hands and any other tasks not named here.
Atlanta Playball staff is not allowed to enter the restrooms with children except in case of medical emergency in which case a parent will be notified.
If a child has a toilet related accident and requires a change of clothes, Atlanta Playball staff are not permitted to assist in changing their clothes. Children must be able to change and put away their own soiled clothes or a parent must be prepared to return to camp to assist with the clothing change, or to pick them up from camp. Refunds will not be issued for children who can't participate in camp due potty training and related issues.
We have access to air conditioned indoor space as well as the school's soccer fields and other outdoor space. While we try to spend as much time outside as we reasonably can, we will never put anyone at risk with heat. If there's a question, we always err on the side of caution and will move activities indoors. We also require that all campers have full water bottles at all times.
We ask that you not stay with your child during camp unless there is a unique need that we have discussed in advance. Parents on site can cause distractions within the group, making it difficult to accomplish what we're working on. We will try to provide an opportunity for parent viewing and/or participation on the last day of camp, depending on the weather and timing.
