NHBA Mariners Select is a premier youth baseball program for residences of Newport Beach & Costa Mesa. We are not a "travel team," but a development program geared towards kids' that wish to achieve their goals of playing at a higher level. The Mariners was created in the Fall of 2020 with the help of MLB scout and hitting coach Steve Springer, MLB pitching coach Zak Doan and our incredible coaching staff. In just two short seasons, our 9U through 12U teams have improved dramatically even winning two National Championship Sports Tournaments and a regular season Select League title. We're we pride ourselves is the work our staff does with our young athletes off the field as well. Respect, character, heart, maturity, work ethic and teamwork are just some of the characteristics that the program is about. We pride ourselves in COMMUNICATING with everyone in our program. We have established great relationships with many high school and college coaches who are passionate about our mission. Our teams take part in a Fall/Winter season from August through November as well as a Spring/Summer season from February through June. The season includes a mixture of Orange County Select League and occasional tournaments. Winning is great and it's something we strive for but its more important for us to build "winners" in each one of our young athletes. Welcome to NHBA Mariners Baseball. To be be eligible for the Mariners Select Program, you must be a resident of Newport Beach or Costa Mesa OR have played the previous recreation season in NHBA.

Why should I consider the NHBA Mariners for my athlete?
· Professional coaches with years of baseball and youth coaching experience
· Best of both worlds: Opportunity for the young athlete to develop and play at a highly competitive level while continuing to be apart of the NHBA community program with peers.
· Field Access: Because of the long-standing relationship with the cities of Newport Beach & Costa Mesa as well as continuing as a non-profit with 501c status, the program will have priority for all fields during the Fall & Spring Seasons.
· Path to Cooperstown: At the 12u age, teams will have the option of playing in the infamous Cooperstown youth tournament during the Summer. http://www.cooperstowndreamspark.com/
