Junior Ravens Baseball is part of Carleton University’s Junior Ravens program. These programs give young players the opportunity to work with the Carleton Ravens varsity coaches and players in a range of development programs in different sports.
2021 Winter Junior Ravens Baseball
The Provincial Government has announced a province wide lockdown commencing on Saturday, December 26. As a result of this lockdown, all Carleton Athletics facilities will be closed until Saturday, January 23 (or until further notice).
This closure will impact the start of our Junior Ravens winter baseball program.
We plan to continue running our Junior Ravens baseball program this winter for its scheduled duration. The program will resume when we are able to reopen our facilities. The new schedule for our Junior Ravens winter baseball program will be communicated by e-mail to registered participants later in January.
The start of the winter program has been delayed due to the province wide lockdown. Parents may still register.
This year, the Junior Ravens Baseball program offers specialized lessons in hitting and pitching for children ages 7 to 13 years. Each specialized lesson is 50 minutes long and runs over the course of 11 weeks. Participants can register for back to back lessons (e.g. Hitting & Pitching).

As a foundation, players will be taught the importance or warming-up and maintaining arm health and durability. Our pitchers progress through basic aspects of throwing to pitch mechanics including grip, lower body push and stride, release point and follow-through. Depending on player progression and age the pitcher will also be introduced to more advanced skills including mental preparation, pitch variety, holding runners, and fielding.
- Equipment to Bring: Glove, baseball pants or sweat pants/shorts, indoor running shoes (no cleats), and jock/jill cup.
Players will be introduced to the science of hitting including preparation, grip, mechanics including stride, swing plane, rotation and separation to produce reliable contact and power. As the weeks progress, players will be taught situational hitting including intent, increased bat control and hitting for power. The goal is to develop a high level of awareness and hitting IQ alongside solid mechanics to elevate batting performance.
