We encourage players of all abilities to attend our camps and after school programs. Whether your child is brand new to the sport or an experienced veteran there is a place for him / her with Vancouver All Stars.

All instructors have up to date certifications in both First Aid & CPR.

Your child should bring weather appropriate athletic shorts and shoes in addition to water, a healthy lunch and snacks for the day. Sunscreen is strongly recommended.

Vancouver All Stars Baseball & Softball provides all full week registrants with an official VAS jersey. We also provide all necessary equipment including safety baseballs and softballs, youth baseball and softball bats, CSA approved batting helmets and protective catching equipment. VAS also carries a surplus of sunscreen as all players are required to be sun safe at camp. Most locations provide players with additional water for refills throughout the day; however it is recommended that players bring with them 1.5 – 2 L of water or healthy liquids in addition to their healthy lunch and snacks to the camp.

We do strongly encourage players to bring their own baseball glove, baseball pants if wanting to slide and any additional baseball equipment they feel will be of benefit to them, such as a CSA approved batting helmet and a youth baseball or softball bat. Cleats are optional, yet beneficial; protective athletic supports are optional as well and are only recommended for those wanting to train at the catcher position.

Water is available on site, however it is recommended to bring 1.5 – 2 Litres of water or healthy liquids per day.

All of summer camp and after school programs are “nut free” due to severe food allergies. If your child has a severe allergy to another type food please indicate so in his / her medical records on the registration form and we will make alternate arrangements for the camp or session they are attending.

It is possible to arrange before and after camp care, the cost is $7 / half hour (taxes included).

All payments otherwise are final.
