About Us! - Southington Travel Blue Knights Baseball is a registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization focused on keeping Southington kids playing on Southington teams with the competitive spirit that travel sports brings to the leagues.
Our goal is to make travel baseball accessible and affordable for Southington families and the only way we can achieve that is through charitable donations from supporters like you.
For those of you that have played travel sports you understand the costs that it takes to run a single team let alone a program supporting multiple teams with kids ages 9-19. For others, here is a sample of what it costs to run a single team,

Speed and Agility Training – in the spirit of keeping things local
we have partnered with a couple of the in-town training facilities and are
proud to say that strength and conditioning programs will be included with your
team fees starting 4th quarter 2017.
Tool 1: The Workout for a Cannon Arm
Being able to keep runners from taking extra bases, and out of scoring position, is a physical advantage every players wants. To increase your distance throwing, long toss is considered one of the best drills to build arm strength.
Tool 2: The Workout for Elite Footspeed
Speed is a valuable tool, not only for baserunning, but on defense it allows you to take extra bases and make hard plays look easy. First step quickness is vital to stealing a base or running down a ball.
Tool 3: The Workout for a Golden Glove
Knowing where to position yourself against opposing hitters will help you make tough plays look simple. By taking lots of ground balls and fly balls, you can increase your strength at a position. Being able to play other positions will also increase your value as a player.
Tool 4: The Workout for Consistent Hitting
Hitting for average is probably one of the most beneficial tools, because in order to score runs you must get on base. Being able to hit to all fields and having excellent pitch selection at the plate is crucial. Most players with a high average hit the ball hard and often.
Tool 5: The Workout for Power Hitting
Clearly, hitting for power means lots of extra bases along with home runs. Being able to have tremendous bat speed along with overall body strength produces a lot of homeruns, which everyone loves to see. While many are quick to look at arm strength, lower body rotation training enables a lot of bat speed, and hence, consistent power.
Currently, there are no upcoming events scheduled.
