We’re happy to announce that we will hosting a Sports Day this summer! It will be held at one of the main diamonds in Philadelphia. We’re just in the process of working out all the details, but we couldn’t wait to spread the news! This is going to be a huge event for everyone and a great opportunity for the whole city to take part in.
We will be catering to families and children/teens mainly, but we’re going to make sure that parents and adults have some thing to do too! There’s going to be all sorts of activities to get involved in. We will have a bouncy castle and inflatable maze, face painting and kid’s races for the younger ones. As well as batting cages, obstacle courses, three legged races, and small games of softball for the older kids, including so much more! We will be offering cold water, lemonade, iced tea, sports drinks (and coffee for the early birds!) to keep you all hydrated and healthy throughout the day! Concession stands will be placed in a few areas around the field for easy access to some snacks and food such as hot dogs, veggies/dip, chips, hamburgers, iced cream, snow cones and more. We will be offering healthy options at the concession stands thanks to our local nature markets, as well as the staples as was mentioned before! This Sports Day is going to be fantastic day for everyone, we hope you can make it!
By hosting this day, we hope that we can spark an interest in youngsters’ lives to an active lifestyle. If they see how much fun they can have while just hanging out with their friends and families, they will be more inclined to spend their free time outside or active instead of glued to the TV screen (figuratively, of course). While we are a softball oriented organization, if we can interest kids in any sport, we consider it a win. We will have different booths and stations set up around the field for information and registration in softball for those who wish to start up with one of our teams. We have casual beginner teams as well as tournament teams which hold try-outs and are a little more competitive. There will also be stations with representatives from other sports teams and organizations in the area if anyone may interested in those.
Our main objective is to spread awareness of the importance of being active and healthy. If you start young, there’s a way higher chance that it will be a habit throughout your life. We will have lots of information and stations on healthy living, including healthy diet stations and general information.
We believe that making a difference in the lives of those today will influence the decisions we all make in the future, therefore bettering the lives of ourselves and those around us. We will be updating the information on the where and when very shortly so stay tuned! We hope to see you there!
