Travel Baseball - Yorkville Eagles

The Yorkville Travel baseball program provides our players with the best baseball experience around!  We believe in developing skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  Our goal is to put the best team possible on the field, while teaching our players to play the game the right way.  We do this through:

Coaching: All of our teams are provided with two professional coaches to ensure that we create a positive and effective learning environment for our players.

Training: Preparation is the key to success here at Yorkville.  Each team meets for a weeknight “Swing Out” session at the Yorkville Baseball Academy, as well as an outdoor team practice on the weekends.  During the winter off-season, teams meet two times per week (swing out session and an indoor gym workout) to hone their skills and maintain camaraderie. 

Competition: The Eagles compete against the best competition in New York during our fall and spring seasons, and we go up against the best teams on the East Coast during our holiday weekend tournaments. 

 


Developmental league baseball

Our D-League is for players in grades 1 through 5 who want a more intensive baseball experience, but are not yet ready for the travel baseball commitment.  Our experienced coaches provide instruction each Sunday, with an extensive workout that includes all the skills and drills necessary to compete at a high level.  D-League is played on Sundays and every weekly session culminates in a competitive game.  

 


Next Level Baseball - Saturdays

This brand new Saturday, 8-week program, has been designed by Coach Jaime and Coach Ryan to give your child the fundamental skills necessary to take their game to the next level.  Lessons will progess from week to week, and all aspects of the game will be covered.  Each session will be limited to 12 participants to ensure safety, as well the opportunity for every child to receive the personalized instruction that will enhance their game.  It will also be a lot of fun!
