Led by an incredibly talented coaching staff of professionals, the program will offer elevated training, player development/fundamentals and play experience while keeping the community driven aspect that NHBA brings to the cities of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. The next tryouts will be Saturday July 31st & Sunday August 1st 2021. Teams will be selected by the coaching staff for each age for the Fall 21 and Spring 22 season. The program will now hold tryouts on a once a year cadence each Fall. We will be fielding teams at the 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u, & 13u ages following the travel ball age guidelines (not Pony age cutoffs). 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/
