Baseball With Koa Sports
Before Koa Sports was Koa Sports, it was Tony Korson (future CEO) coaching a group of neighborhood boys. It was a love for the game that drove Tony to start Koa Sports. While the non-profit has grown a hundred-fold since then, that passion is still present on each and every Koa baseball diamond.
Whether you’re the parent of a first-timer or an elite high school or college player, Koa has the perfect baseball environment for him to thrive. With full-time administrative support, of years of experience and a staff of top-notch baseball coaches (dozens), we’re sure your experience with us will be a blast. See below for our list of programs:
Baseball Clinics (7U-10U)
Our open-registration clinics are ideal for new and returning players looking to develop their baseball skills. This 7U-10U skills is an introductory program, that includes and several drills and exercises designed to improve our players’ fundamental skills. These clinics also put a large emphasis on FUN — learning new skills, making new friends, and gaining an appreciation for America’s pastime.
Bethesda Area Baseball League (BABL) (3rd – 9th Grade)
Koa BABL Baseball is a safe, engaging “in-house” (tryout) league where advanced 3rd through 9th grade athletes are drafted to a team. BABL gives athletes an opportunity to make and reinforce friendships, and explore the finer points of baseball in a competitive local environment. It’s a 2-3-day a week commitment that includes a clinic, a team practice, and game(s) on Saturday.
Travel Baseball (Ages: 10U-HS)
Most folks say travel baseball is for “serious baseball players.” We say it’s for baseball players who take the sport seriously.
Our travel baseball players are practicing twice a week plus a 1-hour Saturday hitting session at Koa HQ, and compete in Sunday doubleheaders. Each travel team has 2 professional coaches to help the boys reach their full potential. Each athletes will receive 2-3 progress reports during the year, which features the Blast Motion metrics. That said, they’re also chattering in the dugout, pushing each other to improve and walking off the field covered in dirt. Eating pizza with the team after a win, it’s hard to describe the boys as “serious,” but the improvements to their skill level certainly is.
Summer Travel Baseball (Ages: 13U-22U)
Our Summer travel program runs from early June through late July, depending on the age group. This and is the perfect fit for serious and experienced players. Summer tournament teams (13U-14U) do light traveling during the warmer months. Our high school program focuses on training and helping athletes become Varsity impact player and prepare for showcases. Our high school players lift 3 days p/week, as well as follow a weighted bat and/or weight ball 8-week program. Our 22u college teams play in the MCBL, the Maryland College Baseball League. This local league (around the beltway & Baltimore) features games with a 5:45 pm start time during the week, which allows our athletes to work, and play double headers on the weekend.
