Sports Leagues & Teams

In addition to the daily access to sports activities in the gym, on our playground and sports fields, and in the pool, we also offer several options for youth to participate in a more structured season-long sports league. There is an additional fee for participation on our Swim Team as well as in our Basketball and Baseball leagues.  Please also note that participation in any of our sports leagues requires an active membership at our Club which is current through the duration of the program.

Please read the Athletic Parent Expectations before attending your child’s games.

Baseball

The Club has a long history of running baseball leagues for the youth in our community. Dating back to the 1940s, youth have been learning the skills to play “America’s Pastime”. With leagues now available for boys and girls ages 4-18, we offer the opportunity for all youth to participate in our summer baseball programs.

A strong sense of good sportsmanship is important not just for our players, but also for our spectators.

T-Ball

$30 Registration Fee
Designed to teach young children, ages 4-5, the basics of baseball, our T-Ball program welcomes interested kids to have fun on the field this summer. Supervised by Boys & Girls Club staff, games are held once a week for seven weeks. Players learn the skills including how to swing a bat and run the bases, as well as respect and how to be a good team player!

Jr. RBI

$40 Registration Fee
Jr. RBI, takes the rudimentary skills learned in T-Ball and builds on them each year as players advance toward our RBI league. Jr. RBI offers youth ages 6-12, the chance to learn skills as they move from hitting off a pitching machine (which always throws strikes) to playing with live pitchers. The primary goals of our Jr. RBI program are to teach baseball skills and rules, encourage sportsmanship, and provide a fun environment for beginner players.

RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities)

$60 Registration Fee
The RBI Program offers youth ages 13-18 the opportunity to participate in a competitive league while still placing the emphasis on teamwork and skill building. Participants in this program have the opportunity to try out each year for the Club’s All-Star team which competes in the RBI Northeast Regional Tournament (and in the past has advanced to the RBI World Series).

Basketball

Basketball leagues at the Club keep boys and girls ages 6-18 active during the winter while providing them with the opportunity to work on skill development and teamwork. We also provide a teen summer basketball league for youth ages 13-18.

As with all our sports leagues, the emphasis in basketball is on building skills in a competitive, but friendly environment. For all of our players, the first skill they learn is good sportsmanship.  With caring volunteer coaches serving as positive adult role models for our participants, our players learn much more than just ball handling skills!

Pre-Teen Basketball

$40 Registration Fee
The younger participants in this league focus on skills much more than on playing full length games.  As participants move up into the older age groups they utilize all of the skills they learn as they take on other teams in friendly and spirited games.

Teen Basketball

$40 Registration Fee
Most of the players in this league have already learned the basic skills and are ready to challenge their peers in games running throughout the season.  These exciting games showcase not only individual skills, but also teamwork as players bond with their peers.
