About NOLA Baseball Program

The NOLA BASEBALL CLUB began in 2005 as a lone 10U team, the NOLA Gators. Since, the club has expanded into a developmental / high school showcase and youth organization for players between the ages of 9 years old and 19 years old. 

In 2009, our NOLA Monster team began play in the high-school division. Since 2010, we have had over 350 players move on to play collegiately and 40+ MLB draft picks play in the NOLA Baseball Club.

The NOLA Way

The things we try to instill in our guys while we have them for the season whether it be fall or summer is to be great men on & off the field. To remind them that baseball is what you do, not who you are. That the person you are is labeled outside of the game of baseball. And to reach out to the community and change someone's life for the better. The wins and loses within the field will come and go; however, the game of life is where we push to win. Our goal is to prepare and develop your son for the next-level in this game, whether it's from coach pitch to kid pitch, or junior high to high-school with all aspirations to become a collegiate student-athlete that best fits the player and family. All while becoming great men, brothers, sons & eventually great husbands and fathers one day. That is, The NOLA Way!
