ABYA teams up with Nations Baseball

The American Baseball Youth Association, a not for profit organization, geared toward offering better options for teams, coaches, players and parents will be teaming up with NATIONS BASEBALL beginning in 2014.

Nations Baseball was formed to bring together the best elements in youth baseball today. Starting with advanced technology, the Nations Baseball website features the most complete roster system and team classification system in the country. Teams compete in Metro, Select, Elite and Premier, leagues and tournaments around the nation with opportunities to attend World Series events in the most attractive locations in the country.

Nations Baseball plans to introduce Premier National Championship events which include events at Cooperstown Dreams Park in Cooperstown, NY and at the future location of Nations Baseball Park in Louisville, KY.

Nations registered teams and leagues are the beneficiaries of year round insurance coverage with the most complete insurance plans in the country. Teams can play anywhere, with anyone at any time during the season and always be covered.  Team Insurance costs $150.00/per team and this provides the team with not only Liability Insurance, but secondary medical coverage and a Nations Sanction Fee.

The Nations Baseball roster system features interaction with the parents of every player so that there is an accountability mechanism for every roster move made to any player in the system. Coaches and parents both will benefit from the website communication manager which explains the implications of any roster move made to any player.

Nations Baseball is committed to providing the most robust and accurate team management system in the country, thereby promoting fair play amongst all ages and classes.

The ABYA and Nations Baseball will offer Tournaments in 3 different classifications (Single A); (Double A); & (Triple A/Elite).  The Single A and Double A divisions are considered local teams and/or park all-star teams that have players from one general area.  The Triple A/Elite Division are for the bigger travel based organizations and teams that have players from different counties, cities and/or states.  All teams must sanction via National Baseball to play in a tournament.The ABYA looks forward to hosting your team during the 2014 season!
