Brand new youth program, “Lil’ Sluggers” Launches in C-K
The Chatham Minor Baseball Association and the Chatham Girls Minor Softball Association have teamed up with a focus on the future of both baseball and softball in Chatham-Kent. The two associations will be offering a “Lil’ Sluggers” co-ed league that will introduce youth ages 3-5 to the fundamentals of the game.
The league, which runs for 9 weeks starting the first week of June and wrapping up the last week of July, will replace the CMBA’s former “Mite Clinic” as well as the CGMSA’s former “Blastball” program.
Through this collaboration, the two associations are able to offer registration for just $25 per child, making Lil’ Sluggers the most affordable youth sport in Chatham-Kent.
“We have always been dedicated to keeping registration fees as low as possible to make playing the game as accessible to as many kids as we can” said Chatham Girls Minor Softball Board President Bryan Depencier, “and by teaming up with Chatham Minor Baseball and sharing some of our resources, we are able to do exactly that.”
The registration fee includes the 8 week program and a team t-shirt, as well an as end of season celebration and medal ceremony.
Lil’ Sluggers will run two separate nights of the week, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
