HSMB NEWS & UPDATES

For the Love of the Game!

Posted on Jun 13 2014

It came to our attention this year, more than it has in the past, that some of our existing baseball families are struggling financially, to the point where they are having to decide which "one" sport their children will play.  This program will help alleviate the stress of such situations, and will also provide us with the opportunity to go into our community and introduce the sports of baseball and softball to families who otherwise might not be able to afford to play.

 

To put this into perspective:  This year, 5% of our registered players could not afford the fees nor the equipment needed to play.  And these are only the families that would come forward - imagine how many did not.  The average registration cost is $80.  The average cost of a glove is $50 - cleats $40 - helmet $25.  While these costs may seem modest to most families, especially when the equipment can be used year after year, however they can be overwhelming to some.

 

Please keep in mind that every donation helps, no matter how big or how small.  Every donation can make the difference in one child's life.

 

To contribute, or should you have any questions, please contact Pauline Skiffington by email at pskiffington@telus.net or by phone at 604-892-7554.
