This league is focused on the fun, action-packed and challenging sport of baseball! The focus will be on learning the rules, the mechanics of throwing, fielding, base-running and batting. Every player will get the opportunity to play each position as teams are kept small so that there is no sitting while players are in the field defensively.

This league is a great way to introduce the game of baseball to your child with the emphasis on being part of a team and learning the mechanics of baseball.

In a world where kids are coming off virtual learning, face-to-face communication is getting harder for them. Through an incredibly fun and high energy workshop, kids will have the chance to improve their communication and public speaking skills via dramatizations and games.

Alex Weidner
Aquatics and Youth Programs Supervisor

Why I chose this program: 
Communication for all ages is so important, but for kids who have had to learn to 'hang' with their friends over zoom, it's been an adjustment. This class provides activities to improve their social skills while having a fun time!
