The Staten Island Orioles began operating in 2006 as a single 13-year-old team, participating in local leagues, and tournaments. Today, we have competitive teams in all age groups and hundreds of alumni who have graduated to both college and pro ranks. Our program offers the following: 

 

  • Up to 12 months of development

  • Competitive Tournament Play

  • Off Season / Winter Training

  • Summer Camps

  • Strength and Conditioning Training

  • College Recruiting

  • Membership to Momentum Sports for up to 6 months. 

 

Our organization prides itself, first and foremost, on molding young men, into responsible, well-rounded adults. Our priority is to create student-athletes, with the emphasis on “student.” We believe that baseball can be used as a vehicle to open doors and opportunities to attain an education at schools that might otherwise be unattainable.

 

We have won countless tournament championships over the years, however more importantly, we have helped place over 250 players in college, ranging from Division 1 schools to Junior Colleges.

 

We have a time tested process that works for those who want to put in the work to develop and grow. There are no shortcuts to success, our ideal player is one who loves to compete and work just as hard in practice as they do in play.

 

Our staff is second to none.  We have staff with extensive baseball backgrounds, ranging from former or current college players, former or current high school coaches, as well as former or current professional players.  We strive to hire those with a background in education and teaching as well, to better serve our players and help bring their game to the next level.  We want to ensure our coaches teach the game, and help develop your athlete.  

 

Our players are also fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of Momentum Sports.  Momentum is a 6,500 square foot turf facility with state of the art equipment.  We have use of Hit Trax technology, as well as Rapsodo technology.  Our players receive a membership to the building upon joining our program, which means that they can come and use the facility whenever they want.  In addition to Hit Trax and Rapsodo, our players have access to a fully equipped weight room. It is imperative to practice on your own in order to take your game to the next level.  The fact that our players have access to this facility allows them to do so with the most up to date tools. 


 

We’d love the opportunity to work with your son, and help bring his game to the next level.  Fill out a tryout request form at your earliest convenience, and let’s get working!
