The cost to participate in youth sports, especially on a high level, has become prohibitive to many young athletes in recent years. With the existence of elite or traveling clubs, baseball and softball have become year round sports. To participate at the highest level, many parents spend thousands of dollars on travel expenses and equipment, along with additional instruction (private lessons, etc.).
Assist 2 Play’s mission is to make the participation in the sports of baseball and softball (and possibly other sports in the future) affordable to everyone without regard to financial status. We strive to make the training and equipment available to everyone who wishes to play these sports. We will provide the equipment and instructors on a free or reduced cost to make it affordable for everyone. Assist 2 Play will organize and run elite traveling baseball and softball teams which will travel to other states to compete against elite teams.
In order to bring exposure to these opportunities, Assist 2 Play will organize and operate camps and clinics at a number of sites, including low income areas.
We will coordinate and facilitate the opportunity for boys and girls to learn and play the games of baseball and softball, and possibly other sports in the future.
We will instill the ideas of good sportsmanship, physical and mental development, good character and citizenship and community involvement.
We will raise funds by donation, subscription, membership fees, dues, assessment and fundraising for these purposes.
Additional information coming soon.
