San Diego STARS – Baseball Academy – Teams

As the oldest and most elite baseball program in San Diego, the STARS are fortunate to attract the very best young talent in San Diego County. Among many other reasons, this is because we spend every year training our young players the fundamentals of the game of baseball. Six weeks of clinics are conducted with our players before they play their first game. This is why every summer our boys compete at the highest level at various World Series competitions. Our coaches spend much of their time not only teaching the game of baseball but also teaching life lessons, including:

• Teamwork
• Sportsmanship
• Discipline
• Courtesy
• Academic Excellence

We are very proud that the San Diego STARS have led the way for 30 years!
