About Us
The Carolina Royals are a competitive spring-only baseball program, offering teams at both the high school and middle school level.  We are a top choice for homeschool players, and an alternative for public and private school athletes in North and South Carolina.  In accordance with our mission, we exist to provide a high quality program where student athletes can grow, both on and off the field.  To that end, players will be expected to work hard, maintain quality attitudes, and respect coaches and teammates. Knowing that our players desire to play at the college level, we want a focus on both personal and team growth, and an atmosphere that builds each other up for the good of all. However, the program itself will require a commitment from the player to push himself  both physically and mentally to be the best athlete he can be.  Check out our college commitments here Commitments

In order to equip our players with the skills needed to play at the next level, the Royals players will have the opportunity
to train in the off season with a select D1 Sports Trainer, working on speed, agility and strength.


The Carolina Royals are led by a volunteer board of directors.
