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 for ages 9-12! 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.  The age 7/8 Saturday morning program does have 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 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.
