The Croydon Parrots Youth Programme comprises a baseball programme for boys and girls aged 8-15*, as well as a tee-ball programme for boys and girls aged 5-7*.

(* Exceptions may be made. Contact us with inquiries.)

The Programme is designed to teach younger players the fundamentals of the game, to encourage healthy outdoor activity and friendly sportsmanship, and to eventually ready the older, more experienced players to partake in games against other London clubs. 

"Joining the Croydon Parrots is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters to start playing baseball or continue their baseball journey. We welcome boys and girls of all levels and look forward to teaching them how to play the game the right way, with respect, appreciation and positive team spirit!"

Trainings take place on Saturday mornings at the Roundshaw Playing Fields in Croydon, from 10:30am to 12:30pm, and run from April through until mid-October They are led by experienced coaches and facilitators. At all times the safety of youth players is our top priority and all coaches hold active DBS certificates issued by BaseballSoftballUK.
