Partnerships and Affiliations
Northeast Pride Travel Baseball has created a strong partnership with Pro Prospects Training Center out of Monticello, NY(Sullivan County) and Honesdale, PA (Wayne County). Our partnership with Pro Prospects offers Northeast Pride players premium training opportunities at both facilities; as well as, on field instruction during Northeast Pride in-season and off-season clinics. Our goal as an organization is to provide PROFESSIONAL and PREMIUM instruction, individual training opportunities, and top coaches and trainers to ALL of our players at very reasonable cost.
Northeast Pride along with our partner, East Coast Sandhogs, are now the official feeder programs for the San Fransisco Giants East Coast Scout Team. This provides national exposure for all players involved with the each of the organizations.
Northeast Pride Travel Baseball's goal in training isn't to pack in as many players as possible which is what some organizations do (some up to 40 kids per session); our goal is to keep the player to instructor ratios low either 3-1 or maximum 5-1 to maximize the learning experience. The training, clinics, and camps offered are run by PROFESSIONALS. The goal is to put the best teams on the fields and that requires us to have the top trainers/coaches/instructors in the the area to train our players. Northeast Pride offers PROFESSIONAL and PREMIUM instruction all winter long with Hitting, Pitching, Catching Clinics, Speed and Agility, Arm Strengthening, Functional Movement and our PROFESSIONAL run Holiday and Summer Elite Camps. Train all winter and then don't miss a beat when the same trainers/instructors can be on-field in a full team workout situation.

Northeast Pride teams play top competition at top tournament venues on the East Coast. Here are some of the venues Northeast Pride teams have played.
Northeast Pride Baseball will also begin to run its own tournaments locally in both PA and in NY. We have already ran our own 18u tournament this last October at SCCC and will do so again this October. This spring we will expand and run 13u, 12u, 10u, and 9u tournaments.
Northeast Pride Baseball's partnership with Pro Prospects also will bring us a new avenue of exciting Showcase Tournaments locally starting this summer at SCCC. Our players will be able to Showcase their talents abroad at Top Showcase venues and tournaments, and then also at "home" in-front of all of our local area college coaches and scouts!
The sky is the limit!
Northeast Pride is striving to be one of the most successful travel baseball organizations on the East Coast. We take PRIDE in working hard to creating our own brand of baseball with a loyal base of players and families that are striving for the same goals. Working hard to accomplish goals at a respectable cost so that everyone has the opportunity to participate. Creating our own baseball "family" where all players can have fun, learn from the top instructors in the area, play quality baseball at top venues, achieve educational along with baseball oriented goals, grow life long friendships with teammate's from all across the area, and grow as players and as a person.
I would like to thank all our current NE Pride players and families. Without your support of the organization/teams we would not be able to accomplish what we have so far to date. Our success is thanks to the great families that are involved. We will prosper as an organization and feel we have the best people/coaches/trainers/partners/affiliations in place to help us achieve those goals and that is all of YOU (Parents, Players, Coaches & Instructors).
Lets grow our baseball family!
