The program started June 1st and ended August 1st and was under the guidance of Parks and Recreation but under the supervision of the Sport Development Officer for Baseball. The list of coaches was comprised of accredited coaches and coaches who are interested in being certified coaches. Regular weekly trainings were held Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday while games were held at the Tony Solaita Baseball Field on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Meetings and visitations were also scheduled throughout the week around the different districts.

Verbal and written reports were prepared and submitted to the Department of Parks and Recreation; the report contained the work that was conducted and the number, names and ages of all participants.

The Department of Parks and Recreation furnished and distributed Baseball Equipments for the summer program that is to be returned at the end of the program. Each region was given an equipment package that included the following: Baseballs, Bats, Gloves, Helmets, and Bases.

The program practically ran the six days a week resting only on Sunday’s. Upon Completion of the summer program, certificates were given out to the kids. It was another successful summer program.

There will be a two week break in which a plan will be formulated to prepare for a year round baseball program. There is great interest in the idea and it will take some intense planning. This will also provide us with an opportunity to begin the actual process of development and scouting for potential National Players. The Department of Parks and Recreation is an avid supporter and partner in promoting the game of Baseball. All plans for the year round program will be submitted to Baseball of Confederation Development Officer for advise and recommendation on this plan.
