Our Coaching Staff

Our campers learn from the very best! Our team of professionals consists of top college and high school coaches and collegiate athletes. Our staff possesses exceptional coaching skills and a commitment to the development of each camper. They encourage campers to reach their own level of accomplishment through a positive, exciting and supportive environment.

Through limited enrollment and a low camper-to-staff ratio, each camper receives the individual attention he/she deserves. Our dynamic staff is dedicated and strives to make a positive difference in the lives of children. We provide college internship opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate staff members, and we offer professional development opportunities for the teachers on our staff. For staff members, ESF (the operator of the Academy) is considered one of the finest training grounds for educators and leaders.


*Please Note: Each Home Run Experience will feature at least one Phillies coach and one Phillies player, including coaching staff and players not listed above. Phillies players and coaches are subject to change.
