Working with youth, we need dedicated staff members being mentors, and effectively engaging in programs so our youth can succeed. We want to take the mystery out of how the organization supports its employees, and acknowledge that we value their commitment to the youth. We know working with youth has its restrictions, so we want to properly prepare our employees.
At Bat is striving to increase the number of at-risk youth who participate in baseball and softball by providing free clinics and low-cost programs.
Baseball and Softball Clinics: Introduce youth ages 6 to 13 to the fundamentals of baseball and softball. Youth engage in pitching, catching, and hitting drills.
After-School Program: During the school year, Kindergarten to 8th grade students learn baseball and nutrition fundamentals, build self-esteem, and apply academic concepts to real-life examples through structured activities.
Baseball and Softball Camp: During the summer, youth ages 6 to 13 engage in baseball and softball drills. We partner with local community organizations where there is a limited amount of or no sporting organizations available within the community. We take pride in giving youth who never had the opportunity to learn baseball and softball a chance.
