CELEBRATING 63 YEARS OF COMMUNITY BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL

FACILITIES

IFPAA has been working with local municipalities, schools and churches for over 60 years to build the most complete network of facilities in the area. With 4 major facilities and 5 lighted fields, your child will always have a chance to play on a great field close to home.

FRIENDS

With nearly a thousand players choosing IFPAA programs each year, your child is bound to find plenty of friends from their school, neighborhood or church on their team. This allows us to offer safer age groupings and the widest range of softball and baseball programs.

COACHES

We know that your child's experience starts with their coach. Through our coach education program we offer first class on-line and hands-on training programs for coaches free of charge. Background checks help to ensure that your child will be safe while having fun.
