Gatorball Baseball Academy offers competitive travel teams, 13U thru 18U. We are looking for serious baseball players – willing to train hard, do things the right way, and compete with and against the top talent in the country.
We are approaching this summer season with flexibility in mind. Given the limitations and uncertainty in DC, along with a wide range of individual family needs/travel, we will operate small group workouts throughout the week at Fort Reno, with an eye towards intrasquad games, formal games & tournament play when local governments allow. With this uncertainty, we are not requesting a single sum team fee from families this summer. Instead, we are asking for weekly team fees. These fees will remain static throughout the summer, whether playing in Florida or DC, whether we are operating small group workouts or traveling to a tournament in August. We are striving to offer a comprehensive schedule through August, engaging with our players on the field 4-5 times per week. The summer program will include a number of Virtual/Zoom classes. Cooking With Coaches will continue on Wednesday nights, along with other items that we’ve found to have a positive impact on our players this spring.
All Gatorball players will receive jerseys, short sleeve shirt, shorts, pants, belts, socks, and hat.
At our Fort Reno/DC location, the following COVID precautions are in place. All players must adhere to the below guidelines. Disinfectant, sanitizer, and other cleaning supplies are available at all times on-site.
– contactless temperature check before each workout
– player equipment kept in designated areas, >6 feet apart
– no use of dugouts
– players/coaches must remain at least 6 feet apart at all times
– players/coaches must sanitize hands upon arrival and departure
– no shared equipment
– no shared matter bottles. We provide ice water. Each player must bring their own water bottle.
The cost of the summer season is $125/week. We operate under the Foggy Bottom Youth Baseball Foundation as a 501C3 non-profit organization. We do not turn away players due to the inability to pay, and ask that families pay what they can afford.
