We are a regional travel baseball club based in the Albany / Capital District area that provides a year-round training program complete with professional hitting and pitching instruction for all of our teams 11U-22U.
Our Teams begin training each year in January,
inside at U-ALBANY with our Winter Workouts & Conditioning program
with approx 50 Hours / 25 sessions of weekend training.
Our Winter Workouts get the players in "baseball shape" and better prepared for their High School Baseball Try-outs in March.
By mid-April, those players who are not playing for their school teams, are outside training on our home field in the beautiful Bethlehem Town Park.
The BRAVES are not part of a REC league.
Our season begins at the end of May, as to not conflict with
the important final days of the school academic year.
The BRAVES are all about the game of Baseball, not just playing games.
No other local baseball club practices more than the Bethlehem BRAVES.
We do not conflict with the player’s academic responsibilities
or their High School Baseball commitment.
Our BRAVES teams begin our regular Summer Travel Baseball Season AFTER
the High School Baseball Season has concluded around Memorial Day.
The BRAVES do not have All-Star Teams, which could cloud the entire team experience that the BRAVES instill in all of our student-athletes.
Our goal is to play together as One Team
and make it into the post-season tournaments in mid-July.
If you love BASEBALL, the Bethlehem BRAVES year-round baseball program
is a probably a good fit for you.
"more team practices and far less politics".
We just don't play games.
The Bethlehem BRAVES Travel Baseball Club:
The goal of the Bethlehem BRAVES Travel Baseball Club is to offer a unique baseball program designed to deliver a greater level of baseball to local student-athletes.
The fact is that 84.7% of kids nationwide who played baseball up to age 12 yrs. no longer play baseball again after that age.
The Bethlehem BRAVES desire to change that.
The BRAVES are a regional travel baseball club that offers a year-round training program complete with professional hitting and pitching instruction. In addition, the program will prepare players for those baseball opportunities that will come about as a result of their experience with the BRAVES. The goal of every BRAVES player should be to strive to excel at the game of baseball through their middle school and high school years with the ultimate goal of being able to play baseball through their college years.
To participate in the Bethlehem BRAVES Travel Baseball Program, it is not necessary that a player be an exceptional baseball talent, only that he have average or better athletic ability, a love for the game and a willingness to work to be the best he can be at the game of baseball.
Our baseball program addresses more than just a player's athletic ability. All of the additional skills necessary to truly play the game will also be developed: maturity, responsibility, and being a good teammate to name a few. The BRAVES also strongly emphasize the importance of schoolwork, good grades, and family.
In practice and game play, emphasis is on a professional look and conduct, teamwork and commitment to teammates, and fundamental understanding and execution of the game of baseball. Winning will happen not by coaching to win, but by sticking to the fundamentals that make sound baseball players and teams. Top to bottom, this theme is repeated at all levels of our baseball program, ages 13u through 18U.
By coming to play ball with the BRAVES, you’ve taken the first step towards realizing a local opportunity of “a better baseball experience.” If you love to play the game of baseball, the Bethlehem BRAVES Travel Baseball Program is available to you. Step up to the plate and register for a try-out.
