Koa Travel Baseball
Since its inception, travel baseball has been our heart and soul. It drove us to start the company, and it remains our lifeblood to this day. What makes Koa unique? Our all-star coaches? Our administrative support? Our state-of-the-art training facility and training aids? Our track record of community building and player success? The bottom line is that we care about baseball and player development. Our data-driven approach allows us to track our athlete's progress throughout the season and more importantly the years. We care about our boys developing as athletes, young men, and reaching their full potential.
Professional Coaching & Baseball Staff
The first reason why families invest in Koa Baseball is the quality of our leadership. All of our 30+ coaches have played/coached high school or college baseball. We train in the principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance. Our year-round administration, which includes our CEO, head of player development, and baseball operation staff, offers over 100 combined years of baseball experience. We have invested considerable time on a 10-Year Player Development Plan for Koa Travel Baseball.

NO. We’re absolutely committed to making our playing fields a positive environment for everyone to enjoy. This is NOT a league for parents to live through their children or take away from the kids’ experience. It’s about two things: getting better and having fun!
Rain is a part of life. For our baseball teams, it means rainouts. The county has jurisdiction to make the call about closing fields due to rain. In case of field closures, Koa will do what we can to make up rained out games or practices but we cannot guarantee that every event will be rescheduled. The NVTBL League (Travel) does not reschedule any games for us.
