Ashiya Gakuen announced they will organize a baseball team at Ashiya Gakuen High School and Junior High School in April 2014 that will not be affiliated with the Japan High School Baseball Federation and will instead be an instructional team under the Kansai Independent League Hyogo Blue Sandars.

Ashiya Gakuen University already has a working relationship with the Blue Sandars.  The addition of the high school and junior high school branches will allow Ashiya Gakuen to provide aspiring players with a ten-year development package.

Players will also have a chance to work with former professionals like Katsuo Hirata and Atsushi Kataoka.
