What is Arena Ball


Live Indoor Baseball Games for Players

Ages 7-12. Where fun, learning, and hitting home runs is KING!


  • Competitive fun! Arena Ball is fast-paced baseball requiring quick reaction and sound decision-making skills. The program enables players to speed up their transition to next year’s higher age division while enhancing their skills under game conditions in a fun, structured and energetic environment.

  • No coaches! What better for youth to learn leadership, organization and communication skills than doing so without grownups intervening?! To that end, no coaches or adults are allowed on or near the bench area. Players are empowered to organize themselves and rotate positions every inning under the supervision of Sports Barn personnel.

  • Affect the Culture! Inside The Sports Barn we believe more than ever that "sports in proper perspective as a vital educational vehicle" is still important! Arena Ball strikes a unique balance between learning how to have fun competing while playing to win in an environment of empathy, encouragement, sportsmanship and respect toward opponents, parents, umpires, the game itself and most of all, one’s self.

ARENA BALL ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Length of Program: October 29th - December 21st

Game Days: Monday through Thursday

Game Times: 5:15*, 6:20, 7:25 and 8:30 (if necessary). 


*The 5:15 time slot is dedicated to players in the Arena Ball “Play On a Set Day” Program.

Players in the Arena Ball “Form Your Own Team” League will play the other three times on varying nights from week to week. The 8:30 time slot, if necessary, will be rotated equally among the teams.


"Playing Up":

  • Players ages 8 and 10 have the option of playing up depending on their experience. The criteria for playing up is a player must have the ability to consistently catch, throw, hit and compete against older level competition due to the speed of the indoor game.
  • NOTE: The Sports Barn seeks to create a competitive schedule and ballgames as best we can while balancing the many variables of team availability when creating the Master Schedule. We reserve the right to create separate "A/B" or "Travel/Rec." divisions within each age group. We also reserve the right to move individuals and teams to higher or lower age divisions.

Pitching:

  • 7/8 year olds Instructional: “Coach Pitch”
  • 9/10 year olds: Hack Attack* pitching machine
  • 11/12 year olds: Hack Attack* pitching machine

*The Hack Attack pitching machine is the most accurate machine on the market and will be used during all games to ensure pitch accuracy and fast paced games. Sports Barn staff members also serve as umpires.


What to Wear:

  • Players need to wear sneakers (no cleats) and must bring their own bats and helmets. Since sliding can be done safely and most kids enjoy doing so, we recommend long pants be worn.
