Inaugural Youth Book Club
FREE for Boys and Girls Ages 9+
Angels Youth Development is proud to offer our inaugural Book Club for kids! As kids, and adults, have become more acclimated to teleconferencing software, now is the perfect time to launch this powerful learning opportunity. Beginning in June, we will offer two opportunities for kids. We will have a session for kids (BOYS AND GIRLS) ages 9 and up; and a session for High School Kids. The format for both will be the same; but the number of times kids meet may vary depending on the length of the book. Books are an outstanding way to learn. Many of our great leaders have expressed how important reading is to their growth. We need our kids to be engaged in books, and to also be engaged in expressing what they learned through their reading. Please email us if further details are needed (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Support Three Organizations that are Supporting So Many
Angels Baseball is proud to be partnering with local Organizations in MD, PA and VA to help support relief efforts from the effects of COVID-19. As we all know, COVID-19 has had devastating effects on businesses and non-profits. We at Angels Baseball believe that we can help. As part of our COVID-19 fundraiser, we are offering people the opportunity to purchase customized Angels Baseball Face Coverings and customized PVC Pipes that can be used for a number of hitting drills. Angels Baseball will be partnering with the following organizations: H.A.T. Packs in Hatboro, PA; Seton Youth House in VA Beach, VA and Manna Food Center in Gaithersbirg, MD. ALL money received will be distributed among the three organizations. Each of these organizations are working hard to not only provide relief to individuals; but are now working hard to do so in a time that makes physical interactions difficult.

Six Weeks of Personal Development
We cannot stop our own Personal Development just because we have to significantly adjust how we go about our daily lives. Yes, we are under strict orders to stay at home. Yes, our schools are closed. Yes, sports are on pause. Yes, hundreds of thousands are sick and many are dying. But, we cannot stop living. We cannot stop learning. This period will end and when it does, you need to be sure you come out on top. Part of making that happen is ensuring that you are making a daily effort in developing your mind. Angels Baseball has begun our six-week series in Personal Development. Each week we will release a video on a different topic. The purpose behind these videos is to help stimulate your passion for your own development. Stop thinking about what has been taken from you and begin to take a hold of your development. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel to receive alerts on when these weekly videos are released.
Before I joined the Angels Baseball program, I was a poor kid from a rough neighborhood in Philadelphia. Angels Baseball helped me earn a scholarship to Eastern University where I graduated with a bachelors degree in Education. I now have a full-time job and own a home in the Philadelphia suburbs. My dreams were realized because of the core traits of life that I learned during my time with Angels Baseball. I will be forever grateful for my time spent at the academy.
Coach Con is one of the greatest coaches, role models, and leaders that I have had to pleasure to know. He is an amazing instructor of baseball, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. His instruction goes far beyond the game and really is about building/creating great young men who also play the game of baseball the right way. I could never thank him enough for all that he has done and continues to do for my son, team, and myself.
Con imparts the knowledge he has gained over so many years to help everyone achieve the success they are seeking. With our boys, that knowledge and motivation he has imparted has grown beyond the baseball diamond. He has taught them the value and rewards of working hard in their school work, at home and in their community. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Con learns that he is guided by his belief of "servant leadership" helping others achieve things within themselves that they never thought were possible.
Con Aquilante's ability to tap into each of his player's focus, desire, and commitment to excellence both on and off the field is immeasurable. When you combine that with top notch technical instruction and a culture where players are focused as much on helping their teammates grow as they are themselves, the result is truly a special experience. Simply put, the Angels program encapsulates the VERY BEST of what sports are all about.
My son joined the Angels team at the age of 11. Though, he was the youngest amongst high-schoolers, Coach Con welcomed him and helped him not only to strengthen his baseball skills but more importantly challenged my son to be confident on the field and in the classroom. Each week, I sat at practice waiting for Con's quote of the day in order to claim it on Monday morning while encouraging my students to believe, work harder, and have fun while doing it.
Throughout the time I have spent with the Angels Baseball program, Coach A has ingrained so much knowledge into my brain in regards to baseball but in addition life skills. Coach is extremely passionate about forming young men not just athletes.
Angels Baseball and Con Aquilante was so much more than exceptional baseball instruction. My son learned about himself and every day ideals- things that he will take with him in life to be successful. The Angels Baseball program was a blessing!
I want to thank coach Con Aquilante, for all that he has done for me. Being a player with the Philadelphia Angels, Coach Aquilante has helped me prepare and continue to get better. He taught me how to train, play, become a better baseball player and be the best person I could be. I have spent a lot of time with Coach A to where he feels like a second father. I have tremendous respect for him in helping me become a successful baseball player and person.
