Welcome to the Cedar Rapids Cougars baseball website. We are glad to have you here! Our baseball program is one of the best school-based programs in the state of Iowa. You should know this is not a recreational baseball program. Our kids learn to play the game competitively from the very start. They play hard, they play smart, yet they have a great time in the process. As a result, our teams are very successful. Our goal is to develop great student athletes who are prepared for playing the game at the high school level and to one day be a Kennedy Cougar baseball player.
