The D-backs Baseball Academy, presented by Phoenix Children's Hospital with participating sponsor United Healthcare, is the official year-round baseball and fast-pitch softball instruction division of the Arizona Diamondbacks. A variety of camps and clinics are offered throughout the calendar year, hosted at facilities such as Chase Field, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, Phoenix Children's Hospital as well as local parks throughout the Greater Phoenix area.
The D-backs Baseball Academy, now in its 15th season, has taught thousands of kids to "Learn to Play the D-backs' Way!"
To ensure quality instruction, enrollment is limited to a 1:10 ratio of instructor-to-student. In fact, you will often see smaller group sizes to provide the best possible learning environment.
Each camp day and session is highly choreographed to maximize participation and activity time. Our instructors are handpicked by the organization from a group of former professional players, as well as the best local collegiate and high school coaches. Fast-pitch softball camps are instructed by collegiate fast-pitch standouts.

Imagine walking into the locker room and seeing your name on your uniform hanging in your locker. Imagine spending a week among such stars as Matt Williams, Reggie Sanders, Steve Finley, Luis Gonzalez, Joe Garagiola Sr., and many more. Imagine the stories you'll hear and memories you'll make.
