The Dale Turner Family YMCA is now registering for summer t-ball and coaches pitch baseball. The registration deadline is June 12 and spaces are filling quickly.
The YMCA baseball league is designed specifically for younger ages with a focus on learning fundamental skills, such as batting, catching, throwing and rules of the game.
Youth who play sports develop general physical fitness abilities and establish lifelong habits for good health. In addition, youth who participate in organized sports do better in school, have better interpersonal skills, are more team oriented, and are generally healthier according to "The Young Athlete."
At the Y, all children are encouraged to play, receiving equal chances to bat, run bases, and play infield and outfield. Playing baseball affords youth the opportunity to stay active, connect with new friends, and most of all have fun.
For more information about youth baseball or other programs at the Y, contact the Dale Turner Family YMCA at 206-363-0446 or visit the Y website.
