What is Arena Ball


Live Indoor Baseball for players age 7-13 and new for 2021 -Softball Games for players Ages 9-13.


Where fun, learning, and hitting home runs is KING!


  • Competitive fun! Arena Ball is fast-paced ballgames 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 way 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.  The age 7/8 Saturday morning program is a structured program with HSB Coaches.

  • 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 fun, competition and playing to win in an environment of empathy, encouragement, sportsmanship and respect.

Additional Arena Ball Information

FAQ’S:

  • Registering - Playing "Up" - Players ages 8 and 10 have the option of playing up at the next age level depending on their skill and experience.  The ability to consistently catch, throw, hit (faster machine speeds) and compete against older competition while navigating the faster speed of the indoor game should be considered by parents when making their decision.
  • Pitching for Baseball Ages 7 & 8: “Coach Pitch”
  • Pitching for Softball Ages 9 & 10: "Coach Pitch"
  • Pitching for Baseball Ages 9-13: Hack Attack pitching machine, the most accurate machine on the market, ensures pitch accuracy and fast paced games. A Sports Barn staff member “feeds” the machine and serves as umpire and game organizer.
  • Pitching for Softball Ages 11-13: Hack Attack pitching machine.
  • What to Wear: Sneakers (no cleats). Players must bring their own bats and helmets. Sliding is allowed and can be done safely on our turf floor, but we strongly recommend long pants be worn! 
  • Home Runs: Home runs are recorded each game and HR standings posted each week. A trophy will be awarded to the home run champion of each age division. Note: home runs do not count for players who fill in on nights they are do not normally play.
  • Registration: Create an on-line account at our website www.haynersportsbarn.com under the Login/Password area. 
  • COVID-19: Detailed COVID-19 guidelines and rules will be emailed to all participants prior to Opening Day.  The following main points are provided so parents know what the expectations are ahead of time:
  • Effective July 1, 2020 and until further notice, all persons coming to The Sports Barn must enter our building through our main front glass door and exit the building via the green door located in the Barn Yard.
