About the Dragons

We formed our first team in 2007 to keep a group of great nine year olds together so they could continue to have fun and learn the game of baseball. Our oldest team still has guys that have been playing together since they were six. We believe in developing a good team dynamic and surrounding our players with the most positive coaches and positive families. Players will only begin to feel successful after they feel comfortable and the have to be having fun.
 
Dragon Baseball is all about:

  • A positive environment
  • Fair playing time and plenty of opportunities
  • Professional instruction
  • Developing complete athletes and well rounded kids
  • Knowledgeable, well trained coaches
  • Clear goals and good communication with our families
  • Strength and speed training in fall and winter to supplement baseball training

We fielded 12 teams in 2014.

2014 Summer Camps
