BYC Challenger Program

This year, for the first time, Brandywine Youth Club is running a new baseball program that should be very fun and exciting. The Challenger program is a baseball league in which kids with special needs can have an extraordinary baseball experience. Other boys, like my twelve year old brother, are partnered with the players in a “buddy” system where the boys can help kids with special needs to get better at the sport and to just have fun. As another part of it, some of the boys who are going to help out collected equipment at the BYC gym from the community. The feedback was great! More than enough gloves, bats, and helmets were donated for the program, and some extras were donated to some other leagues. The team will have practices this Spring and have a high possibility of playing some games. The kids, buddies and coaches are ready for this year as the program is expected to be fantastic. Watch out for the newest team at BYC!
