Baseball Buddies is a program that promotes physical literacy in younger children by integrating basic fundamental movement skills (FMS) and fundamental baseball skills (FBS). “Physical Literacy” is defined by Project Play as “the ability, confidence, and desire to be physically active for life”. We cover locomotor movements (running, skipping, jumping) stability skills (ability, balance, coordination), object control (throw, catch, strike) and awareness (spatial, body, rules). The program helps children to move more confidently and efficiently with a range of baseball-themed, physical activities!
Themes Include: Throwing, object control, catching, running, hopping, balance, body control, spatial awareness, and rule following.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."

BASEBALL BUDDIES TESTIMONIALS:
"Baseball Buddies has been at our Center since 2011. The instructors are warm and encouraging to the children while teaching them real baseball skills. The preschoolers look forward to their weekly visit with great anticipation. Many of our children have enrolled in Baseball Buddies multiple times.
We are very pleased with this program. I highly recommend Baseball Buddies to other Childcare Centers."
"Olivia loved Baseball Buddies both times she participated. This program combines everything she loves-playing, running, and a chance to show her skills!"
"Baseball Buddies came to Carol Nursery School for the first time in the Winter of 2015. Working with their staff was very easy and they gave quick answers to all my questions about the program. We were able to work with Baseball Buddies to tailor the program to fit our needs. Once the program began, the children were engaged and happy. All in all, it was a good experience for our facility."
"It is my pleasure to recommend Baseball Buddies as a wonderful addition to any early childhood program. This was one of the most popular enrichments we offered at our school this year. The children loved the program, and Coach K was always punctual, professional and enthusiastic. It's often difficult to find quality programs for younger children that are designed to teach beginning sports skills while maintaining a friendly, uplifting, and positive atmosphere. Baseball Buddies was successful in promoting team building, developing gross and fine motor skills, teaching baseball basics, and encouraging purposeful active play in our children. We look forward to bringing this program back every year!"
