How should I pack?
We advise packing and using casual, light clothing. Your non-baseball schedule may include beach time and tourist activities in a tropical climate, so T-shirts, shorts, jeans, or khakis are more than adequate.
Does PRIBL Baseball provide transportation to and from an airport?
While PRIBL Baseball does not offer transportation to and from the airport, we can offer recommendations on shuttle and transportation services for you to book individually.

PRIBL Baseball staff will track flights and communicate with players days before they arrive for instructions. Players traveling with families typically meet us at the field on the first training day, but we're happy to assist you in finding transportation if you need one.
What type of supervision are players provided?
Players are always under the direct supervision of our credentialed coaches & chaperones to ensure everyone has a safe and memorable experience.

Will there be a trainer and doctor available while I'm in camp?
We will have certified trainers available all week long in case injury, or other physical needs occur. A nurse will accompany the players and their guests throughout the event, and a qualified physician will be on call.
What happens if I get hurt or sick while traveling?
PRIBL Baseball purchases insurance for all players traveling. In addition, we have local medical contacts and know the nearest medical facilities in all locations in case of emergencies. Still, it's always a good idea to bring your insurance plan so that you know ahead of time that you are already covered for an emergency.

The All-Inclusive package covers all expenses while participating in the event. We recommend bringing extra cash (or a debit card) to buy extra snacks, drinks, gifts, and personal souvenirs or do extracurricular activities. Make sure your Debit card is unlocked internationally.
Will I be given a talent evaluation? (Something we can send to College Coaches)
From our experience as college coaches & pro scouts and next-level coaches, we are not big fans of evaluations because they tend to be biased & inflated (for a variety of reasons). College Coaches want to see school grades, standardized test scores, a recent baseball skills video, and live competition it is possible. We will provide individualized group instruction and feedback to help players give themselves the best shot to succeed at the next level, but we do not do formal "evaluations."
I want to join, but I don't know anybody else going.
No problem at all! Occasionally players will come with a friend/teammate, but most travel solo. These new shared experiences spark a quick bond between players. We believe it's fair to expect an incredible experience and memories that will last a lifetime. You are more than welcome to recommend a friend to be on your team.
