Fun and free baseball clinics

YBA PLAY offers year-round baseball/softball programming for youth living in Wards 7 and 8 and summer league opportunities for children in other Washington, D.C. communities with poverty rates well above local and national averages. This innovative program provides high-quality, creative instruction, and an opportunity to learn from trained, community-based coaches.

By reducing the barriers to access, both geographic and financial, providing young people with a positive, high-paced, engaging youth baseball experience, YBA PLAY can increase the consistent participation of youth in underserved communities by supporting the emotional and physical development of its participants.


YBA PLAY Spring Programming runs from March 14th - May 18th and is available to children ages 6-12 in Wards 5, 6, 7, & 8.
