Welcome to The Pennsbury Athletic Association

The Pennsbury Athletic Association (PAA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization serving families throughout Lower Makefield Township, PA; Yardley Borough, PA; Morrisville Borough, PA and portions of Falls Township, PA with in-house, travel and tournament baseball and softball in the spring and fall for ages 5 - 18+.

Softball Rain Update

The PAA Softball Heat tryouts were cancelled Wednesday August 19th  due to rain.  We will continue Thursday evening August 20th for 10U, then Sunday evening 23rd for 10U.  We then will have tryouts for our 14U Heat team next week Monday 24, Wednesday 26, and Sunday 30th.  All activities will be on the Fred Allan Softball Complex at 6PM.  Any questions please email frankehrenfeld@gmail.com
 

SOFTBALL NEWS

Pennsbury Softball will host a number of opportunities over the remainder of the summer to continue to instruct and develop our rising 8U and 10U players.  Any current member (2014-2015) of a PAA Tournament (10U or 12U Heat) or Travel (12U Gems) may also attend after your season is over.  [12U see below note]
 
Knowing that it may be more difficult for any organization to field a full team during the summer months - we'll use the "Sandlot" approach employed in our baseball program.  In this way, girls can just show up without prior reservations and we'll divide into teams.  It's also a great way for them to start to develop relationships with girls across borders/organizations as we may be joined by some players from surrounding leagues.  
 
Depending on participation, we'll generally break up into 8U and 10U groups on adjacent fields.  At least one senior Pennsbury coach will be on each field to provide guidance and instruction.  We call it PAUSE Button coaching and it is effective for the younger age groups.  
 
The roots are from the successful Modesto California's SoCal Athletics Youth Softball Program.  In addition, the extra drills and playing time may help your daughter if she has try outs for any of the tournament or travel teams at 10 or 12U.  We will generally use the fields at the Fred Allan Softball Complex.  Again, we know that not all girls will make all of these dates.  
 
Practice-sessions with drills and multiple stations will be:
Tuesday July 21, 6-8PM
Monday July 27, 6-8PM
Tuesday August 4, 6-8PM
Wednesday August 12, 6-8PM
 
Scrimmages will be rotating M, T, W, Th each week from July 20 - August 13: 
Monday, July 20, 6-8PM
Tuesday July 28, 6-8PM 
Wednesday August 5, 6-8PM
Thursday August 13, 6-8PM

Congratulations to Gary, John and Tom and their boys for winning the 2015 13U District Championship! They won 7-6 in the bottom of the 8th. Matt Hirsh had a walk off single to right field.



7U Falcons

Let's give the boys of the 7U travel/developmental team a big high five !!! The program's first year team both competed intensely in every game and had fun along the way.The success of this new travel/developmental team has been attributed to the dedication of all the players, coaches, and families. The team finished their regular season with a record of 3-2-3. The team saw marked improvement for all the players, most notably the success of our kid pitching and the team averaging more than 8 runs per game. The boys seem to possess the characteristics needed to have a team grow and succeed together. Let's hope their positive experiences as a team continue.
 
Although the season has ended, the team has continued to practice together with hopes of competing in a summer tournament.


The 8U Heat team under Coach Frank Dragoni is looking forward to their taste of state competition the same week in Langhorne. This team of young players is primarily an all-star team of rising 8U players who have been identified through the in-house pro



8u Falcons!

Great job by the 8u Falcons!  The boys finished a very fun, competitive season in the Suburban Travel League with a 6-4 record and a bid to the playoffs!  Awesome job for their first season of travel play!
 
With the travel season completed, the District  and State Tournaments are heating up.  The boys will be opening up play in the District tournament this Friday against Valley Athletic Association, at the Valley Complex in Bensalem at 6:00.
 
Starting on July 10, PAA will be hosting the 8u State Championship Tournament at Stoddart!  The events open with a ceremony on Friday evening along with the skills competition, including a home run derby!  Games will start on Saturday and continue through Wednesday.  Our boys will be competing in this Tournament, so please come out to support the boys!


The 9U Falcons

The 9U Falcons just wrapped up the Philly Baseball Bash tournament last weekend with an 8-3 win over Levittown American. It was excellent preparation for the Ripken District 9U Tournament which will kick off this Friday at the Levittown American AA major field at 6:00pm. 

The 9U Falcons feature outstanding pitching, scrappy defense and a small-ball offense that can drive opponents crazy. Our team has been practicing hard for six months and we are excited to compete against other excellent area teams for the right to represent our district in the state tournament in July. 
 
Once we conclude District play, we will turn our attention to the North Wall Beach Bash IV tournament scheduled for July 17-19 in North Wall, NJ. This is a great tournament to conclude our season since our focus is baseball fun and some great family time at the beach


The 10U Heat team under coach John Evans, missing some key players due to injury and vacations, was still able to get it done and qualify for their State Tournament. "I was so proud, that despite being down to just ten players, we were able to hang tough

Our 12U Travel team qualified for states with a 12-8 win over Langhorne in the District Tournament, 2U team was a finalist in the District tournament last weekend and we qualified for states that will be held this weekend at the 21st Ward in Roxborough



Congrats to 9U in House Champs Led by Manager Greg Webber



The Sand Gnats, Managed by Joe DiPalma, win the Minors Division Championship!

The Marlins, managed by Bill Nally, Win the Majors Division!


NEW BATTING CAGES!

First we got new fields and then we got new sheds, we now need to build cages so our players can have a safe place to warm up their bats.

With about 800 kids playing ball this coming year, if each parent donates $25 each, we would be two thirds of the way to reaching our goal. 

Each complex will have a cage centrally located so our players have access to a safe place to warm up.

Please donate now to help fund these batting cages!
