Quickball was acquired by EL1 Sports in 2022. EL1 is a national sports training company created by athletes, coaches and educators who believe in the transformative power of sport to make a difference in people’s lives both on and off the field. We provide expert instruction and a full suite of administrative solutions in the service of athletes, teams, organizations, tournaments and events – primarily in baseball and softball.
Using a unique business model that emphasizes cooperation rather than competition with the youth sports ecosystem, we create numerous pathways to partnership for facility owners, league operators, and team coaches. We now have 10 training facilities in four states, with more on the way. We also run many camps, clinics, and more than 100 highly regarded baseball and softball tournaments.
We have grown from humble beginnings on a tennis court in Tacoma, WA in 2010 into one of the nation’s larger youth sports companies, operating in multiple states under the brands EL1 Sports, EL1 Baseball, Los Angeles Dodgers Training Academy, Softball University, RISE Football, Premier Sports Tournaments, and now Quickball as well.
In March of 2022 we were honored to enter into a partnership with Major League Baseball that will help bring our programs to more markets and extend our reach to more underserved communities.
