From the desk of Robby Bales:
Did you know that?
Nearly half of American youth are not vigorously active on a regular basis. Daily enrollment in physical education classes is drastically decreasing among high school students and childhood obesity is at a record high.
The concerns listed above are very alarming and should be taken seriously. Considering that studies show that children with added physical activity show attributes such as increased motor skills, brain function, concentration levels and self esteem. Furthermore a positive relationship between physical activity and academic performance is supported.
In the midst of an economic crisis it is extremely important that the youth of our community remain involved in extra-curricular activities, such as baseball. However high school athletics have also unfortunately been affected. Therefore funds must be raised for our program to carry out daily activities and maintain academic and athletic performance. Anything helps!!
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Coach Bales
