2020 Baseball Camp

$40 Registration Fee

Starting July 6th!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host our traditional RBI League this summer. Following the current CDC social distancing guidelines, we have developed a Baseball Camp for youth ages 8-18. Participants will be assigned to a pod of 13 players which they will stay with for the duration of the camp. Pods will be grouped by age and will play once a week. This camp will focus on teaching the age-appropriate fundamentals of baseball such as throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting. Pods will not play games against other pods, however, they will be able to scrimmage and play games among themselves. This is a great opportunity to keep your kids active and safe during this unprecedented time. Play Ball!

T-Ball

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

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)

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).

Please return the completed form in person or mail with payment to: Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket, One Moeller Place, Pawtucket, RI 02860.

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!

Are you interested in being a volunteer coach? Please email Lauren Lastrina, llastrina@bcgpawt.org
