Irish Youth Baseball

Growing the game of baseball in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Our Irish Youth Baseball program operates in Ireland and Northern Ireland, thanks to partnerships with local non-profit organizations, baseball clubs, and GAA Rounders clubs.


Our Irish Youth Baseball program is made possible by the support of our Corporate Partners, Supporters, and individual donors.

School-Based Program

At the core of the program is our partnership with Healthy Kidz CIC, a non-profit organization based in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. 

Our program introduces baseball to over 5,000 boys and girls in school physical education classes each year.

Our school-based program teaches the basics of the game —  gameplay and rules, hitting, catching, and throwing — with a focus on generating interest in the game at the grassroots level.

Rounders and Baseball

 Many children in Ireland have a basic understanding of the core concepts of baseball, thanks to their familiarity with rounders. Rounders is a bat-and-ball game that resembles baseball, or slow-pitch softball, in man ways. 

Rounders is played throughout Ireland and is one of the four “Gaelic games” that is overseen by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). 

We work in partnership with  GAA Rounders clubs to provide coaching and equipment. By highlighting the shared aspects of rounders and baseball, we can increase awareness of baseball and broaden the pool of players who play both rounders and baseball.
