Program Summary and Highlights
The main goal and focus of the 10U program is to develop each young athlete into a fundamentally sound and intelligent baseball player. Formal training will begin in January, continue indoors through March, and then begin the regular season schedule in April. The 10U team will play between 20-30 games in the NEAAU Spring League with one travel tournament. Games have traditionally been double-headers on Saturday, so many players are able and encouraged to play with their town teams during the week. There are also many intangibles, overt benefits, and advantages afforded to each player by participating in a program centered at Franklin Pierce University and sharing facilities with one of the most successful and nationally-renowned collegiate baseball programs.
Tuition for the six month program is $750, and includes: 20-30 games (one weekend tournament), extensive weekly winter practices at FPU’s “Bubble”, access to staff/coaching with decades of professional baseball experience, many games and practices at New England’s premier baseball facility and fields, and exclusive opportunities for specialized baseball clinics featuring standout collegiate athletes and FPU’s collegiate coaches.
If you look good, you play good. New England Ravens uniforms are mostly Nike product and very similar to the ones Coach King’s college players wear. The base uniform package (additional cost) includes: Home and away jerseys, game and practice hats, Ravens logo helmet with player number, equipment bag, belt, and socks.
Each player will have the ability to purchase optional uniform items such as team logo hoodies, warm-up tops, and practice apparel and occasionally take advantage of special deals on gear like Rawlings baseball gloves and Oakley sunglasses.

Because the New England Ravens are an established and well-known program, fundraising opportunities are always available to motivated players and parents looking to be involved. One example being the 2013 14U NE Ravens – non of which paid out-of-pocket for their annual tuition or their trip to the AAU National Championship in Fort Myers, Florida due to their tireless fundraising efforts.
