Beaver Valley Baseball Club, founded in 1996, has been one of the most respected baseball programs in the country for the past 21 years. In our years of existence, we have competed on the highest level of travel baseball. We mix the top local travel experiences with the most competitive travel tournaments in the northeast and mid Atlantic regions. In our illustrious existence, we have won the coveted Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament a national record 10 times, and have several other National Championships under our belt, including the Nations top event, the USSSA Elite World Series in Disney. In 2015, our organization finished in the winner's circle in 75 different events, by far the most of any other local program!! Our history proves that we are the premier baseball program in the Pittsburgh area, and one of the top baseball programs in the country.
The program has an extensive winter training program that focuses on all aspects of baseball. From individual skill level to team skills, our BV BASEBALL players get the whole gauntlet of travel baseball. We prepare our players for the upcoming season, and beyond. All of our practices are fast paced, and set up for our players to handle the baseball in a large series of reps!! We watch our arms closely and stress the importance of building arms up -- our players do not even step on the mound until Mid February, a month after we start our winter training.
When our winter program is complete, we turn our attention to the spring/summer tournament and game season. We are not a program that "trophy chases", we are a program that seeks out the best competition we can find. Before you judge how good a team or player is, you better judge the competition they are playing. Our players are consistently being challenged on the highest level of the game, they log many games against the best teams in PA and surrounding states. This brings out the best in our athletes and allows them to grow as a player. We fear no competition!!
We start at age 7u and run a program to high school ages. We balance the younger teams with a schedule they can handle without overdoing it. We promote the game to our youngest ages, and they love to put that "BV" jersey on and represent our program. At the youngest ages (7U through 9U) we play around 7 tournaments with limited travel. The tournaments go up to 8 - 9 events for a 10U player, and up to 11 tournaments for ages 11U - 13U. As a player moves up in age, the program gets progressively more aggressive. It is not unusual for a 12U player to see 70+ games in a spring/summer. Make no mistake, we are a program that is for serious baseball players. Starting at age 13U we focus our attention on "showcase" style tournaments. Events sponsored by Perfect Game will be our focus at 13U and older. We want our players to play on this competitive scale, and be recognized by scouts on the college and pro level. On this site you can see our teams of all ages, but for ages 12U and older, each player has their own "individual player profile page" -- this is a page for each player, with all the stats a scout would like to see and a video highlighting each player's skill set. These individual player profile pages will be updated yearly and will become a home base for college scouts and pro scouts to get a snapshot of a BV BASEBALL Player.
A BV BASEBALL player is expected to be tough, competitive, a hard worker, a great student, a great kid, aggressive, fearless, respectful, coachable, professional, always ready for a challenge, and courageous. The BV BASEBALL CLUB is in the business of teaching young men the great game of baseball, and making them respectful people at the same time. We expect to win games, but when we lose, we do not make excuses or point fingers, we tip our cap to our opponent and get ready for the next challenge. In short, a BV BASEBALL player is a Champion in a lot of ways!!!
