On Friday, January 9th youth all over the GTA gathered at the Rogers Center for the 2015 Jays Care Foundation Amateur Baseball Clinic. Thanks to our great friends at TD Bank, SBL youth enjoyed an evening of relationship building and discovery.
This opportunity incorporated many of the key elements in line with SBL’s mandate , including exposure of both the city and new activities and a space for relationship building. Students were given the opportunity to learn baseball fundamentals, explore the Blue Jays facilities all while having a blast!
“It was a great day. We got to do many different things. I’ve never played baseball before and I got to learn about it.”

It was refreshing for the youth to practice baseball while leaving their comfort zone-Samuel Boakye- SBL Staff
Having the opportunity to explore arenas outside of Jane and Finch and doing so with their peers was an experience they will never forget!
