COVID 19 Updates



Strange start to summer!

As we had to cancel our regular season, every registered family will be receiving refunds and those have been submitted to Sports Engine for processing. No action needs to be taken on your part.

Currently the MDH And CDC are not allowing baseball games but we can have skills classes and challenges within guidelines.  Here is the basic information for the skills sessions we are arranging for your kiddos if you are interested: 

  • The session will start the week of June 22 and run 6 weeks so you have August off
  • We are utilizing the same days that were planned for league
  • TBall Level- Mondays at 5:30pm - 6:30pm (Once per week)
  • Farm Level Mondays/Wednesdays 6:30pm-7:30pm (Twice per Week)
  • Minors Level Tuesdays/Thursdays 6:30pm-7:30pm (Twice per Week)
  • Each Child should have their own helmet and bat. If this is a problem for you. let us know and we can help. T-Ballers do not need helmets.
  • More detail (fields, groupings, etc.) to come!
  • If games are cleared by the state at any point during our time together, we will get groups together to have some friendly games! 

Here are the cost details:

  • We are issuing full refunds for the season that had been planned. That is already in the works and should reach your homes soon.
  • Sometime during the skills session once you have been made whole, we will email you details on how to pay for the session.
  • T-ball - $25
  • Farm and Minors- $50

With the help of our coaches that have stepped up for our session and your energy, we look forward to getting the kids moving and having fun! Thank you!

Welcome to Raider Nation

Founded in 2009, Raider Nation, in partnership with the Hastings YMCA, offers an In-House Baseball Program that serves ballplayers ages 4-9 (Pre-K thru 3rd grade) with a season that runs from the beginning of June through early August, depending on age level. A child's grade at the time of registration determines their eligibility for each program level.

The program provides each player a hat, pants and jersey with RN and YMCA logos.  Each team is fully equipped with bats, helmets and catchers gear.  Players must provide their own glove. 

In-House Baseball registration fee varies from $60 - $160 based on the level. Late registrations may be accepted dependent upon availability and payment of a $100 late fee. Late registrations carry no guarantee of uniforms being ready for opening day but we will do our utmost.


The Registration "Raider Nation Baseball" is not currently available.
