2024 Season

  • All players who are new to the organization will receive an Olentangy Stix bat bag and helmet.
  • All players 9U and above, who are new to the program, will receive Jaeger Bands with their acceptance to a team. Arm care is a priority for our program and proper preparation to throw a baseball is key to healthy baseball players. We do not throw to warm up, we warm up to throw. Pitching workload will be tracked and monitored by the organization, ensuring no athlete is overworked.
  • Athletes that want to continue training, will have additional off-season opportunities focused on speed/agility, pitching, and hitting. We love multi-sport athletes and realize that off-season training isn't for everyone. Don't pay for something that you don't have time to do. Our partnerships with local businesses provide us the flexibility to offer flexible training resources when you want it, and when it works with your schedule.
  • All head coaches will have the ability to receive youth baseball coaching certification from Driveline Baseball. The leader in the industry, Driveline Baseball provides comprehensive resources that teach coaches skills that scale.

Why We Are Different

  • We have full access to 7 baseball fields across Olentangy
  • All new players will receive an EvoShield helmet and Demarini bat bag
  • All teams receive indoor training time from January through March
  • Stix families receive exclusive access and discounts with Wilson, EvoShield, Demarini, Louisville Slugger, Oakley, Franklin, and Lizard Skin bat grips
  • We are a non-profit, affiliated with OYAA. Our cost structure is very competitive, while providing a best-in-class experience.  We manage our finances to ensure every dollar collected is improving the athlete experience.
  • Our volunteers and baseball community. We are your neighbors, classmates and co-workers. Our organization is rooted in Olentangy, and we take pride in being a part of the community.
