Girls At Bat
Research has shown that active children have the ability to concentrate much better and that exercise decreases anxiety, reduces depression and improves mood and outlook in children. Girls need sport and more female role models coaching them in sports to ensure that they live long and healthy, active lives. Girls At Bat is Jays Care's girls-only baseball program, designed for and by girls and young women with the goal of making playing and coaching baseball fun and safe for those who typically don't have the courage to get involved in team sports. By combining fun, challenging baseball skills with team-building exercises and healthy activities, Girls At Bat empowers girls with the confidence, self-esteem and leadership capacity they need to succeed on and off the field.
