Welcome to Bellevue Junior Sports (BJSA) Baseball, where our mission is to provide opportunities and exposure for local players to compete at the highest levels in youth baseball and instill discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity.
BJSA teaches our players to respect the game, the coaches and umpires, to work hard, and to play hard.
The BJSA baseball focuses on consistent hard work and striving to become a better ballplayer. We believe in pushing your teammates to be better, picking them up when they are down, and always believing in yourself. Character is revealed in times of adversity and baseball provides that adversity. By putting these young baseball players in competitive situations we help them develop their character, which will benefit them not only in baseball, but also in life.
1. Provide players with the opportunity to learn, develop, and improve their baseball skills on a regular basis.
2. Provide each player with an atmosphere that encourages mental, social, and emotional maturity.
3. Field successful teams at all USSSA levels.
4. Prepare players for Bellevue high school teams and college advancement.
Players must tryout for each team, with tryouts in early July. BJSA fields two teams for each age group U8s through U14s. The "A" teams in each age group are designated as the Bruins Purple while the "B" teams in each age group are named the "Bruins White." Players selected participate in winter practice at the BJSA Sports Center as well as the Lied Activity Center and various schools in the area. BJSA annually fields 11-12 teams of youth baseball players with 11 to 13 players per team. We are affiliated of the Nebraska USSSA. This program involves intense competition with youngsters playing between 25 and 60 games during the season (depending upon age group).
Games start in late March/early April and end in early July. Special emphasis is placed on training and developing players for participation at the high school level. Additional fundraising is expected. Fees include uniform and pre-paid gate fees.
BJSA's select baseball teams will be sporting new uniforms this year with a consistent design for both the Bruins teams. The design is anchored by our "B" logo we hope will become synonymous with BJSA and our exceptional sports programs. We have also contracted with Primetime Sporting Goods to provide parents and friends with fangear of all varieties.
