Reston Warriors 9U-12U

Advanced Placement Baseball

About Our Program

More competition, more experience.

The Reston Warriors AP Baseball Program was established in 2004 to provide an additional baseball experience for advanced players within our Reston-Herndon Little League boundary. We currently field teams at the 9U, 10U, 11U and 12U age levels, with the Warriors AP season running from fall 2020 through summer 2021.

All teams compete locally, with some participating at the state, regional and national levels of competition. Reston Warriors Advanced Placement teams consist primarily of Reston-Herndon Little League players, along with as many as two out of boundary exemptions per team.

The mission of the Reston Warriors AP Baseball Program is to promote and facilitate the development of players' skills along with the understanding and respect for the game of baseball, while playing in a competitive team environment. Though our Warriors AP program is not directly affiliated with Reston-Herndon Little League, we work very closely and in cooperation with our house league program through Reston Youth Baseball. Warriors AP players not playing another fall sport will be expected to play in the RHLL Fall House League in addition to their Warriors schedule. Players on Warriors teams must also plan on participating in RHLL House League during the spring 2021 season to remain eligible for Reston Warriors Advanced Placement Baseball.

Reston Warriors AP Baseball plans to field two teams at 9u, 10u, 11 & 12u age group. These teams will carry the Reston AP Baseball brand, Reston Warriors Black and Reston Warriors Red. Warriors teams are the only AP teams allied with RHLL, however all costs associated to run the Warriors program come from the families of the participating players. RHLL does not fund the Warriors program.
