Rookie League

Children in underserved communities experience troubling opportunity gaps starting from the moment they are born. These gaps include low birth weights, hunger, physically and emotionally unsafe environments and sub-standard after-school programming. Rookie League, Jays Care's baseball-for-development program, is designed to provide children and youth with skills, experiences and role models to help them overcome these gaps.

Rookie League supports marginalized families through fun, high-quality, skill-building programs that children love. For some, Rookie League is a baseball-for-development activity that takes place weekly. For others, it is a robust seven-week summer day camp. For everyone, Rookie League is designed to be a best-in-class experience that enables parents and caregivers to feel confident that their children are safe, active, surrounded by well-trained and inspiring local role models, and engaging in activities that are specifically designed to help them learn essential life skills.
