Travel Council Overview


The Noblesville Youth Baseball Travel Program is committed to developing talented young men with a passion for baseball. As an extension of the Miller Baseball Program, each player and coach will be pushed to achieve excellence on and off the field through first class instruction and support. While demanding commitment and denying selfishness, all players and coaches will be expected to work to improve everyday while putting the team before themselves.


The Development Council (DC) is the development, evaluation, and accountability arm of the NYB Travel Program for ages 8 – 12. The DC will conduct the selection process for both the players and coaches. Each councilman has considerable playing experience, along with valuable coaching experience. The DC’s objective is to use their perspective and insight to teach coaches and train Noblesville players in a positive and fun environment. Committed to the development of each player, the DC will make decisions in order of program, team, individual. No other travel program can offer the collective experience while instilling “The Miller Way.” A standards-based curriculum will be installed in order to lead each player and team on a path of reaching their potential.
