The Renegades Baseball Travel Baseball program was established in 2009 and is a unique opportunity providing young players from the Capital District, NY area the chance to improve their baseball skills. The Renegades baseball program is now Upstate Academy Baseball under the Upstate Sports Academy Facility located in Clifton Park NY. Playing a highly competitive schedule will help each player take his game to the next level. We believe that two important components of an athlete’s development are to be challenged by the best competition, and to receive first class instruction.
The Upstate Academy staff consists of former college standouts, which can draw upon their past experiences of playing at a high level to help in the development of all Renegade players. We emphasize both the importance of teamwork and individual responsibility. We stress the value of a solid work ethic as the building block to success. Through hard work and dedication our experienced staff prepares our players to succeed both on the field and in life.
We are committed to a non-parent coaching atmosphere to ensure our coaches an optimal teaching environment. We ask that the parents support our goal to leave all of the baseball related decisions to our trusted coaching staff.
The program offers 13u, 14u, 15u, 16u and 18u levels. The teams conduct winter workouts at our 8,000 sq. ft facility in Clifton Park NY from November until mid March. The workouts are usually twice a week and consist of baseball skills training and Explosive Performance strength and agility training. The Summer season usually begins in late May or early June and ends in early August. The teams usually play a 30 - 40 game schedule over the summer. These games will be comprised of tournaments and league games. The Renegades also field teams in the Spring and Fall seasons.
