FUN, FUNDAMENTALS, FITNESS, is core to our Baseball Program. We offer indoor winder clinics to prepare our players for the upcoming Spring Recreational Baseball Program which runs April-June.
Recreational Baseball Program: (April-June) is organized into Tball, Rookies (machine pitch and kid pitch programs), Minor Level, Major Level, and Seniors. The objective is to provide our players with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals, experience each position, and have fun! This program is focused on teaching the basics of the game.

"Play-up" exceptions are made based on skill level, experience, and player evaluation. Most exception requests are made when a player is the youngest in his/her grade and"play-up" to be with their friends. We understand this circumstance, and will accommodate the request as long as the players safety is not at risk. Please contact the DTAA Board at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2017 for approval.
Tournament Baseball Program: (May-August) is a competitive program made up of players from the local area who tryout and make the team. The objective is to provide our players with an opportunity to experience the game at a more competitive level. We aim to compete in a few local tournaments (eg Branchburg, Hillsboro, Flemington etc).
Program Objectives and Rules
Players are introduced to the rules of the game and play games where player pitching and catching are introduced. The focus is on the development of hitting, throwing and catching skills. Games are played against other programs in the surrounding area.
Players play games with umpires, player pitching, base stealing once baseball has crosses the plate, and official scoring. Games are played on a 46/60 field against other programs in the surrounding area.
