About the Nokona Baseball Program in the Northeast

The Nokona Baseball program was founded more than 13 years ago with a simple mission: To teach, train, develop and mentor young athletes whose interest it is to play college baseball, all at an affordable cost.

Nokona Baseball is centered on enhancing a player's opportunities for success.  For each age group, the Nokona Baseball Program represents a collection of the area’s most talented players. These athletes come together as a team and compete at the highest level while developing their individual skills and having fun in the process.

The right path to success can begin at any age.  Our organization and its coaches have an enormous passion for baseball. We look to identify and work with players who share a similar passion and want to get the most out of their talents and baseball careers.  We stress the importance of education and the discipline and preparation necessary to achieve success, thereby allowing our athletes the opportunity to play at the highest level possible.

Winning is a product of our success, but not the only measure. Nokona prides itself on past members who have gone on to prestigious colleges and universities, student athletes who have fulfilled their dream of someday being part of a quality collegiate baseball program. Our clinics, camps, and travel teams all help in the overall development of a player’s skills—but the life lessons learned along the way are invaluable.

Nokona teams have continuously put forth a level of commitment and dedication that has come to symbolize what it means to be a Nokona player and carry on in the proud tradition of the program.
