Junior Program – All genders
9 to 17 - Provide an ACTIVE START and Learn the FUNdamentals - Learn to Play
The Preston Pirates baseball club have a range of baseball programs, catering for all genders and ages from 5 to 50+. This is achieved by having specific programs for various age groups.
We aim to provide long term athletic and player development. We do this by providing an inclusive environment that nurtures, encourages and challenges our players to develop mentally and physically.
The Junior baseball program builds on those skills learned in the T-all program and teaches them to new players also. Continuing the theme of FUN the Junior program also adds the ideas of Learning to Play, Training to Play, Learning to Compete, Training to Compete and Training to EXCEL. Our Junior program is also part of the pathway to representative state and national level baseball.
