Virtual Programs this Winter
The Angels Organization is proud to be offering our Be Accountable program online this Winter. Accountability is defined as taking responsibility for one's actions. Unfortunately we are in a time where it's easier to make excuses, and to blame others for why we have failed rather than take ownership of our failures. The Angels Be Accountable Program works to educate youth on taking ownership. We discuss with kids what it means to Be Accountable to oneself; to Be Accountable to one's Family; to Be Accountable at one's School; to Be Accountable with one's Friends; and to Be Accountable within one's Community. Throughout our program, we will discuss with kids what it means to Be Accountable in each area; and then put that discussion into action. Kids will be asked to apply what they have learned and then report back what they have discovered. Click on the button below to read more on our Program.

Stay True to Your Culture
The Angels program, founded in November 2006, was built on the beliefs that all kids are capable of greatness; that all kids can contribute greatly to our society; that all kids should be given an opportunity to shine; but more importantly, that all kids are first responsible for taking the appropriate actions to Nurture a Cultire of Excellence. As the Angels Program continues to grow, it is imperative that all those in the program and all those that seek to join our program understand the values we look to uphold. These values are applicable to not just the kids; but to the Angels Coaches, and parents of the kids in the program. Below is a link to Download our Angels Creed. The Angels Creed is one we want to live by both on and off the field. It represents who we are as a program and what we are looking for from all those looking to enter our program.
2020 Year-End Fundraising

Our mission at Angels Baseball is to challenge youth to become the best version of themselves on the field, in the classroom, at home, and in the community.

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.
