Carolina Crush Baseball!

Welcome to the 11U/12U Carolina Crush website. We are a premier travel baseball team based out of the Lake Norman, NC area. As an organization, we are committed to providing an environment in which all of our players can progress their skill levels through fundamentals, new challenges, and hard work...all while having a great time doing it. Our coaches are all family-oriented individuals with a commitment to helping each child become better at all facets of the game of baseball.  It is our goal to be considered one of the finest baseball organizations in the country. We hope to achieve this recognition not only by winning baseball games, but also by helping our children become better people.

We hope you enjoy our website.
