Danville Baseball Academy

The Danville Baseball Academy is entering its 17th season in the Fall of 2022 and into the Spring of 2023. Danville Baseball Academy is an all in one program for anyone interested in their baseball or softball needs!!! We do private and group lessons, camps, clinics, skill specific classes, and club teams from 9U-18U. We take pride in developing young men and woman into great ball players and even better people. We have always said, “it isn’t about the wins or chasing down trophies, it’s all about the training, development, learning the game, and getting them ready to play at the next level.” 

Danville Baseball Academy players are representing the program well for San Ramon Valley High School

Last year was yet another banner year for the program. Teaching the game the right way pays dividends over the course of a couple of years. This was evident by the success of all of our teams. We traveled to Arizona during Spring training and our 12U, 13U, and 14U teams all won the Triple Crown Spring Nationals. Each team, from the 9U-18U, had sustained success throughout the season and progressed as their seasons went on. It was fun to watch the progress each player made. The Crushers, 9U-14U. and the NorCal Prospects, 15U-18U, continue to be the elite destination for local baseball players!! 

We finished the summer with our SOLD OUT 7 week camp session located at our very own fields on the Athenian School Campus. At our camps the approach is simple, have fun and learn the game. We have established a system of progressive training, specific skills sets one week leading into the next set of skills the following week. The skills and game awareness our players learn is invaluable. Our 5:1 player to coach ratio allows for unique individual attention during our ever so popular camps!! Our beautiful fields right here in your own backyard are some of the best playing surfaces in the area.
