About THE sTICKS
About the Iowa Sticks Baseball Club
How we started
The Iowa Sticks were founded in 2007 with the purpose of offering athletes training from paid coaches, as well as the opportunity to participate in a tryout-structured baseball club. Starting out with only one 8U team, the Sticks organization has grown significantly each year.
By 2009, there was at least one team offered for anyone ages 7-14. Three years later, the Sticks expanded even further, introducing the High School Sticks Program. Over the years, this program, and others, continued expanding to include scout teams, travel teams, individualized training programs, the Sticks Strength Program, and so much more.
Who we are
The Sticks staff is comprised of coaches and trainers who have limitless knowledge and passion for the sport. Our highly experienced staff strives to enhance player development by utilizing modern, high level coaching techniques. Coaches, officials, and trainers work to set examples of respect and sportsmanship for our athletes both on and off the field. Additionally, the Sticks staff expects parents to be a part of our professional culture by encouraging their athletes to stay positive, show good sportsmanship, and work their hardest every day. The Iowa Sticks don’t base success off of the number of wins, but on player improvement, fundamental play, and a true understanding of sportsmanship and teamwork.
By joining the Iowa Sticks, athletes will gain access to multiple elite baseball training facilities and programs, allowing for both in- and offseason training. These facilities may include, but are not limited to:
Sportsplex turf/batting cages (Waukee)
D1 Training (Waukee)
Diamond Dreams (Iowa City)
The Iowa Sticks will provide players with the opportunity to play and train with one of the most competitive organizations in the country. Our staff looks forward to helping athletes become the best versions of themselves - both as an athlete and as a person.
