Youth Baseball Classes

Ages 5 - 14

The Chelsea Piers Youth Baseball program introduces our young athletes to the skills, rules and strategies of this intricate game. This program emphasizes individual skill development through focused attention on mechanics and repetition. Each age appropriate program progressively works on improving skills while implementing what they have learned into live field simulations and game specific scenarios.

The goal of our program is to strengthen the skills of beginner, intermediate and advanced players in a fun and supportive baseball environment. Low coach-to-player ratios ensure maximum learning and individual development. The Youth Baseball Program provides players a great opportunity to improve their skills in the off-season!
