Reds Rookie Success League

The Reds Rookie Success League (RRSL), a free, coed, character-building summer baseball program, enters its 17th summer in Cincinnati and throughout Reds Country in June. The Reds Rookie Success League is an introductory baseball program for boys and girls who normally would not be able to afford this type of program. It features baseball instruction while focusing on a character-based curriculum and the "Six Stars of Success" - Cooperation, Integrity, Respect, Education, Determination and Spirit (CI REDS). Programs will run two days a week for four weeks in Dayton, for four days a week for two weeks in Butler County and Cincinnati, for five days for a week in Clermont County, and for six weeks in Louisville. Each program features visits from Reds players and coaches, or from Dayton Dragons or Louisville Bats personnel.

The original Cincinnati program celebrates its seventeenth year and fifth to take place at the P&G MLB Cincinnati Reds Youth Academy in Roselawn. In Butler County, the Reds Rookie Success League, co-hosted by the Joe Nuxhall Character Education Fund, begins its thirteenth season at Waterworks Park. In Louisville, three programs will be featured in June and July - a program at Wyandotte Park and a Reds Rookie Success League program taking place at Petersburg Park at Newburg Community Center, and a new mini Reds Rookie experience at Westonia Park. 2019 also marks the 11th year of the Reds Rookie Success League of Dayton at Action Sports Center. The Reds Rookie Success League of Clermont County will host eighth year of the program in 2019 and will be held at the Batavia Township Community Center.

Space is limited with each program capped at roughly 250 to 350 participants depending on location. Volunteers, coaches and mentors are also needed to operate each program. To find out how you can get involved, contact the Reds Community Fund at (513) 765-5008 or [email protected].


Volunteer opportunities are available for all Reds Rookie Success League franchises. The program relies on volunteer coaches to help insure a great experience for all kids.
