Formerly the 603 Bandits, 603 BANDITS is Northern New England’s Premier Showcase Baseball Organization. Originally founded in 2013 as a 10U team, the Bandits have become one the Northeast’s Top Select Showcase Teams, competing and bringing home titles in the Northeast’s Best Fall Showcase Tournaments including Perfect Game, Prospect Select, and Firecracker Baseball. In 10 seasons the Bandits have close to 150 wins as a team, competing 21 times and collecting 9 out of 12 title chances. We are expanding offerings to include ages 8-18 starting in the fall of 2023. Players may choose to play in fall, summer, or for both. 


Our Premier Showcase Teams (603 Bandits) will be expected to have a high level of commitment to showcase travel ball. We foster a highly competitive environment. If you are asked to be a Bandit, we expect those players to contribute to the success of the team and overall program. In exchange, we offer an opportunity to “showcase” players talents while competing for titles week after week while being seen by college coaches. Players are expected to bring a high level of drive, effort, attitude, and passion for the game, as well as their teammates and other teams in the program. They are the Standard for our younger teams, 603 Bandits AAU, and our 603 Bandits Devo teams.

In both Summer and Fall the 603 Bandits will prioritize competing in Perfect Game Tournaments.

603 Bandits (ages 8U-18U) will typically play 6-7 high level Showcase Tournaments with an emphasis on exposure and college readiness. This requires a considerable amount of commitment from both players and parents. You can expect a travel heavy schedule, playing some of the best competition in the Northeast and around the country. This will be a Perfect Game schedule model with unmatched competition, exposure, and experience.

603 Bandits are our Flagship Teams. The Bandits are not for everyone. We are for highly motivated athletes who desire top coaching, exposure, and competition. Bandits will be expected to represent the organization both on and off the field. You can expect to work closely with our Baseball Ops to get you in contact with colleges that are appropriate for you based off your talent, commitment, schooling and future interests. We take great pride and pleasure in helping all Bandits reach their goals to play beyond HS.

603 Bandits AAU (8U-18U) will play tournaments locally and throughout New England with an emphasis on getting ready for future opportunities. These teams are for skilled players who enjoy an appropriate level of competition and have a love for the game. A great choice for those players and families who do not have the ability to commit to a demanding SHOWCASE schedule. We will still provide support for those players who are interested in playing beyond high school. 603 Bandits AAU ages 8U-18U will start in the Fall of 2023 and continue through the Summer of 2024. 


603 Bandits DEVO (8U-14U) will be for those players and families that enjoy the game. As stated in the name, the main focus will be development. These teams will participate in mostly AAU league play, while developing the skills needed to play for 603 Bandits and beyond in the future. We will offer an end of the year out of state tournament based on interest, numbers and availability.
