The Connecticut Gators Baseball Club hosts spring, summer, and fall teams for players 9U through 14U competing in tournament and travel league play. The Gators are committed to smart player training throughout the year providing practice and training opportunities that complement the gameplay. The program is guided by 5 objectives listed below, which guide those players competing in the program as they eventually develop into successful high school student-athletes. Many Gators who’ve graduated from the program continue their playing careers at outstanding colleges and universities throughout the northeast.
Beyond the skill development, our coaching staff is dedicated to teaching the young men in the Gator program the importance of positive work habits, communication skills, goal setting, and character.
