10U/12U Development Program

The NYGB Development Program provides basic instruction and practice for girls aged 12 and younger who are not yet ready for competitive play. The Development Program will give them an opportunity to learn basic baseball skills and strategy in a laid-back, safe, and fun environment, and prepare them to join a competitive team if they so desire.


The program is geared towards players 12 and younger with limited baseball experience. However, players up to 14 years old and those with prior baseball experience can register.


The Development Program runs during the Spring/Summer season.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there parking at the field?

There is generally plenty of free street parking around the park and in the neighborhood.

There is seating by the baseball field as well as a hill with lots of shade where you can set up blankets or chairs. You are also welcome to drop your daughter and come back at 4:00pm.

What should my daughter wear?

Please have your daughter wear comfortable athletic clothing that she doesn't mind getting dirty. Sneakers or turf shoes are acceptable. Please note that the baseball infield is turf so metal cleats are not allowed.

What should my daughter bring?

Please have her bring a water bottle and any snacks that she may want to have at the break. Make sure she has on sunscreen and we recommend wearing a baseball cap as well.

If she has baseball equipment (glove, bat, helmet, etc) she is welcome to bring any of her own gear. We will have some gear on hand for those athletes who don't have their own.

What will the sessions include?

The first and second sessions will be a general assessment of the participants skill level. All sessions will include warm-ups, an intro to the skills for that day, skill drills, and conditioning. Later sessions may include scrimmages. All sessions will include a short break for water and snack.
