Bringing Baseball to Schools in Northern Ireland
We launched the first in-school baseball program in Northern Ireland in 2021 in partnership with Healthy Kidz CIC. In just two years, over 5,000 boys and girls played baseball for the first time during their physical education classes!
During the summer, we helped launch a baseball camp program. Click the video below to see how the kids enjoyed learning about baseball!
This year, our program will expand to bring the game to more children in more areas in Northern Ireland.
Partnership with GAA Rounders
As our program in Northern Ireland expands, we have launched an innovative partnership with the GAA Rounders club in Adamstown, County Wexford. The program will teach basic hitting, throwing, and fielding techniques to children who want to learn how to play rounders and baseball.
