Land Sharks Travel Baseball and Softball/School of Hard Knocks

Welcome to the Land Shark Travel Baseball and Softball program. Our indoor facility is the School of Hard Knocks in Niles, MI. We are an organization committed to the development of youth players rather than the accumulation of plastic trophies. We've found, though, that the more we focus on development, the more wins we get! Please come join the best staff of instructors and travel coaches in the Michiana area. 

Our travel program features:

Dedicated indoor facility, our own outdoor fields, clinics, complete training and flexible tournament schedules for all levels of player.  These fees include uniforms, hats, insurance, and 11-12 tournaments for the 14U and under / 5-6 tournaments for HS ages. Average costs for 9U - 14U under $950/player and our HS teams are under $1,100 per player for 2020.
