Welcome to Beaver Valley Baseball
We are an elite youth travel baseball program with the goal of developing every player’s individual skills. We accomplish this through our winter training program and spring tournament play. Our indoor training is held at Hitters, Hackers & Hoops in New Castle, Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena, Cheswick, PA, and Greentree. The practice program is designed to start with basic mechanics and through repetitive drills, build on the foundation each week. Practices are designed to be energetic and fast paced. We work from the ground up with all of our teams no matter what age group. We will start with the most basic of skills to ensure that the players are executing them correctly. This includes simple throwing mechanics, the mechanics of the baseball swing, defensive play, pitching and others.
As stated above, the main goal of our program is for each player to develop advanced baseball skills. We hope that each participant grows as a baseball player and as a person.
Lastly we hope that the boys develop friendships and have experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
We have won Coopertown 8 times, which is a national record. We also have won a national championship in Disney in 2004 (13U), also, we frequently attend Ripken’s tournament in Baltimore, MD. We will also send teams to Sports at the Beach in Rehoboth, Delaware. Most of the other tournaments the we attend are typically no more than a 3 hour drive from Pittsburgh.
TravelballSelect 2011 National Coach of the Year
What many don’t know is what this man behind the BV Program sacrifices on a daily basis just so the talents of these remarkable young BV Red players can be seen. Off the field, he is a 6th grade teacher and a 7th and 8th grade boy’s basketball coach. He and his wife, Brandi, have 5 children ages from 11 – 19. All but two are active in some type of sport(s). Although he oversees the BV Red programs from ages 9-14, Brian still makes time to attend most all of his children’s events every year including concerts, awards assemblies, baseball, football, basketball games and cheering competitions – just to name a few. In addition, Coach Brian has also tutored many children who are struggling for whatever reason in order to help them through their problems so they can adapt or overcome and move on to achieve. That work was and is the basis to which BV Baseball was born and it is the premise on which he lives his life and it is the basis of what he teaches his players.. Adapt and Overcome.
