Special Needs Baseball/Softball Opportunity


Tippy Stars Baseball/Softball Team
WHAT:  The Tippy Stars is set to kick off another season as part of a partnership with Klondike Summer Recreation.  This is a baseball/softball/t-ball opportunity for special players aged 5 to 18.  Briefly, team/or teams will be created from players with unique needs.  These teams will then have fun developing baseball skills, and playing ‘mixed scrimmage’ games against/with teams composed of baseball/softball players from area Summer Recreation programs.  The Tippy Stars and guest team will be divided and then re-selected to make two teams with players mixed from each of the original teams.  The players on the team will then work together to create a fun, rewarding baseball experience for all participants.  The games will be conducted in a relaxed, flexible, yet controlled environment that should accommodate everyone’s needs while ensuring a good time is had by all.
WHO:  Special players ages 5-18 and area baseball/softball teams from surrounding Summer Recreation programs. 
WHERE:  Currently, all activities are scheduled to occur at the Klondike School fields.  However, depending on the teams being played and the number of registrants, activities could be scheduled at ball fields throughout the Greater Lafayette area. 
WHEN:  The team(s) will be established and notified by May 2.  The Stars activities will begin the week of May 9 (specific dates and times to be announced) and run through end of June.  Activities are expected to primarily occur on Tuesday and Sunday evenings.
