What is Lil Sluggers?
Lil Sluggers is a youth baseball program designed to prepare boys and girls ages 2 through 8 for their journey into organized team play by improving and developing their social and physical skills both on and off the field. Our Chicago Baseball Academy provides instruction for ages 9 through 12.
Why Choose Lil Sluggers?
Our coaches' energy, the pace of the classes and small player to coach ratios are what separate us from other sports programs. We pride ourselves on minimizing the kids' wait time between turns, which results in more action, more learning and more fun! That, along with our years of experience and true love for the game is what makes us the best sports program for kids in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Basic baseball fundamentals such as throwing, fielding, hitting, catching and base running are the core of our curriculum. Our classes and coach-pitch instructional leagues will build confidence, reinforce team play, teach cooperation and help foster a real love for the game! Our philosophy is to have FUN, build CONFIDENCE, and learn BASEBALL, in that order.
