Hanover Youth Ball Mission

The Mission of Hanover Youth Ball is to provide a quality youth baseball and softball program that is accessible and affordable to members of our community, regardless of race, creed, color, ethnic heritage or socio-economic background.

In pursuit of our mission, we will strive to promote good sportsmanship and teamwork in our youth and to teach them physical skills that will promote good health and fitness as well as positive self-esteem. In partnership with parents and the community at large, our program is devoted to providing a safe and supportive environment for our youth and families while promoting a sense of community.


Hanover Softball is excited to offer to variety of clinics to our girls to get ready for the 2024 season. Thanks to the collaboration of Hanover Elementary and the Hanover Athletic Association, we have a batting cage at HES to use for our clinics! This will be very beneficial to our program.

Due to generous donations from our sponsors, Hanover Youth Ball can offer these clinics at a discounted price. Clinics are for girls registered for Hanover Softball.
