Grand Rapids, MI – Youth baseball players and parents will have some great skill building and training opportunities this summer in Grand Rapids and Rockford. The Christian Athletic Complex (CAC) announced expansion of their baseball training opportunities by partnering with Zeeland-based Baseball Concepts. The CAC complex, located at 3450 36th Street in Kentwood, will now be host to the Baseball Concepts Summer Series of affordable yet high quality baseball camps led by highly qualified instructors. The ArtVan Sports Complex in Rockford will also host a Summer Slam camp this summer.

“The CAC is very excited to partner with Baseball Concepts. Our organization is focused on creating a family-friendly environment for players and fans alike. We look forward to this partnership and the opportunity to interact with kids and families in our community”, said CAC Director Graham Rayburn. The values and mission of both the CAC and Baseball Concepts are very similar: promoting character, hard work and positive attitude. Kids will be provided with essential drills and skills, but most important are the character and attitude components that will be emphasized at these camps. The Baseball Concepts’ Summer Series will be held on weekdays to provide kids and parents with some healthy and positive options for summer baseball activities.
