RBI Austin Programs
Discover the many ways to be part of the RBI Austin family
We offer affordable summer baseball and softball leagues for ages 4-12 years old (Jr. RBI) and 13-18 years old (RBI).
We offer a variety of skill clinics throughout the year so that kids of all ages can get together to grow in the knowledge of the game and hang out with other RBI Austin kids.
We believe that positive relationships change the game for a child. Coaches, mentors, role models – every kid deserves to have someone in their corner cheering them on!
PLAYER DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAM
We desire to equip young men and women for success both on the field and in life. Our Player Discipleship Program (PDP) pairs groups of 9th-12th graders with a group of positive, adult mentors during the fall semester.
We’re a different kind of sports program
We love the games of baseball and softball and the way that they can bring people together and develop kids. Our summer leagues include the Jr. RBI Summer League, serving ages 4-12, and the RBI Summer League, serving ages 13-18. In the fall, we offer a Player Development Academy where we use baseball to teach players how to grow consistent character, whole hearts, and thriving relationships. Monthly clinics are available to our Jr. RBI and RBI kids throughout the fall and spring to continue to develop their baseball and softball skills and connect with their coaches and mentors.
Even greater than our love of the game is our desire to see kids be success in life beyond the field. Our mentoring program includes RBI Mentoring, matching mentors to mentees starting in the 4th grade, while our high school Player Discipleship Program pairs groups of 9th-12th grade students with a group of mentors.
Over the past nine years, RBI Austin has been building our age group offerings so that more kids can participate in a quality, relationship-centered sports program. Today, from ages 4-18, kids of all skill and income levels have a place to play baseball and softball alongside positive, consistent coaches.
More Skill Levels
Early on, RBI Austin consisted mostly of beginners to the sport. We now also are an ideal home for more advanced players to develop. This wouldn’t be possible without investment from our volunteers and donors who seek to provide a quality sports program at an affordable rate for families at any income level.
All Types of Families
Since 2011, the disparity in team sports participation between kids from low-income and middle-class homes has grown drastically. During that same timeframe, RBI Austin – consisting of 97% low-income households – has grown from 118 kids in 2011 to over 1,200 kids playing baseball and softball in 2018.

I’ve been with RBI for a few years now — as a player, as a coach, and as a intern — and there is nothing like being a part of this family!
- Julian G.
We genuinely LOVE RBI and what the league/organization stands for. I was so impressed with how the coaches, who don’t have kids of their own, serve and love the kids.
- Linda M.
Over the past 4 years we’ve had the privilege of having our kids on teams coached by some amazing people. The capacity they have for not only being dedicated but committing to loving the kids is inspiring.
