Q: WHO DOES THE INSTRUCTING AT THE CAMPS?
A: The Swing for the Stars Youth Baseball Clinic (S4S) hires instructors that take pride in teaching the game of baseball the right way. In addition to Orlando Hudson and his professional MLB friends, players and coaches of the Francis Marion baseball team will be on site to train participants. Our coaches have the proper techniques, drill work and skill sequences that will definitely take your child to the next level.
Q: HOW SHOULD THE CAMPERS DRESS?
A: This is an on-field camp; all activities are outdoors so each camper should dress appropriate to the weather. All campers should wear their baseball cleats, baseball hat, t-shirt and appropriate baseball pants – sweat pants or shorts.
Q: HOW DO WE REGISTER? WHAT ARE OUR PAYMENT OPTIONS?
A: Using our website you can register online or through the mail: ONLINE: (preferred registration) visit www.swingforthestars.charityhappenings.org. Complete the form with check or money order and mail to the address on the registration form. WALK UP registrations will not be accepted, as we need an exact headcount in advance. All of our walk-up campers are required to pay in cash.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY?
A: For any type of registration (credit card, check or money order), it is our policy that a cancellation prior to two weeks (14 days) of the camp date will receive a full voucher refund of the camp’s cost. This voucher can be used for a future large group camp and can be used to partially or fully pay for a future camp in that time period. Cancellations must be made through email or written request by mail and received 14 or more days prior to the camp date. Due to t-shirt orders, printing costs, coaches hired and your registration filling another players opportunity to attend; there will be no refunds on cancellations for any reason within two weeks (14 days) of the camp date or after the date of the camp. If a pre-camp injury prevents a player from attending, we will offer a full voucher refund upon receipt of a doctor’s explanation mailed to our academy. Camper registration may be transferred to another player, however, the new camper must still fill out the registration information. A signature on the registration forms or our online registration acknowledges the cancellation policy for our academy.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF A CAMP OR CLINIC IS CANCELED?
A: S4S reserves the right to cancel any camp because of insufficient enrollment or for other unforeseen circumstances, such as in climate weather. We do our best to have our camps run as scheduled if there is snow fall or regular winter conditions, however, in the case of snow and/or ice storm we may have to make the decision to cancel the camp. We generally have our instructors conduct the camp as scheduled as often as possible. If any camp is conducted as scheduled, those not attending will not be offered any type of refund. If a camp is canceled, registrants will be notified immediately through email and if necessary, their phone number. The cancellation of any camp will also be posted on our website first, so please check our website periodically in regards to your camp if you have a potential question about the status of the camp. If a camp is canceled by the S4S, each camper will have a choice of voucher refund, transfer of credit to a future camp or a refund check for the cost of the camp registration (doesn’t include any credit card registration fees); in either case we do not adjust your credit card account if it was used for this camp. Please note that the S4S cannot be held responsible for any other costs, charges, or expenses regarding this instructional opportunity.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHECK IS REJECTED FOR NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS?
A: The C.A.T.C.H. Foundation charges $30.00 for every non-sufficient funds (NSF) check to cover our banking fees and processing fees. Each camper will be responsible for the camp’s registration fee and the NSF fee paid through a money order.
