Bandits AAU

In the Braintree Bandits program, our priority is developing champions in life. Through baseball, we are teaching accountability, integrity, work ethic, trust and most importantly confidence in oneself. These characteristics will not only create a positive environment and promote success within our program but will help our athletes beyond the game of baseball. In our program, we offer our athletes free strength and conditioning November through March, off-season winter practices twice a week, and we participate in the NEAAU season along with our tournaments at each age level. Our knowledgeable and experienced staff provide instruction in all elements of the game from pitching and catching to hitting and defense. We also offer end of year evaluations to go over with parents and players strengths and weaknesses and to collectively build a plan to further the growth of the individual. 

Price

Cost for all teams will be paid in installments. There will be a $400 up front deposit and then five payments throughout the season. If needed, BBC will create payment plans to help families to ensure all athletes chosen for teams can play.
