The Bergen Swamp Rats are one of the fastest growing travel baseball programs in the area. The Swamp Rats were founded by three coaches that have dedicated their lives to bringing a positive environment and a wealth of knowledge of the game to student athletes in the Northern New Jersey area. Another goal of the Swamp Rats staff is to provide all of this at the lowest prices in the area.
The Rats are supported by a volunteer staff. All of our dugout personal have played at the collegiate level. In addition to teaching the game that we all love at the highest level, our staff focuses on helping our athletes excel off the field as well.

From calling balls and strikes to diffusing tough situations with managers, we'll teach you the fundamentals of being a referee. No one's called a blind ump when they get our credentials.
