Bulls Team Up with Dreamsports Center
The Durham Bull Baseball Club and Dreamsports Center of Apex NC recently announced a partnership to bring baseball to young kids aged 2 – 5 years of age. The Durham Bulls will be the official sponsor of the Lil Sluggers program at Dreamsports. Sports activities are an integral part of every child’s physical and social development, and both the Bulls and Dreamsports recognize the value a fun fitness program can have on cultivating a child’s self-confidence and joy in the game of baseball.
Headquarted in Huntington NY, Lil Sluggers is a nationally recognized child development program created to introduce children ages 2-5 to the game of baseball. Lil Sluggers classes develop important skills such as throwing, catching, hitting, and base running. Developmentally appropriate equipment and games are used to teach children the game of baseball in a fun, exciting, and positive environment.
The Bulls will be a big part of the program at Dreamsports, including having their mascot and players becoming a regular part of the program. Lil Sluggers will also have regular opportunities to become more involved in Bulls games at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Says Mike Birling, General Manager of the Durham Bulls, “Kids and families are such a big part of the sport of baseball and of what we do at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. We are very excited about our partnership with Dreamsports and its Lil Sluggers Program. We look forward to hosting the Lil Sluggers at the park this summer.”
Steve Werner, General Manager and Co-Owner of Dreamsports, adds, “We have many programs for very young children to begin participating in sports. It is very exciting to be the only facility in the area that offers baseball to children in this age group. The support of the Durham Bulls in our Lil Sluggers program ensures that our kids have truly the best exposure to the game from the very beginning. The Bulls share the vision we have for a family friendly sports environment for all of our members. We look forward to a long-term relationship with the Bulls.”
The Lil Sluggers program will begin on March 15, 2009 at Dreamsports Center in Apex NC. You can find more information about Lil Sluggers and other youth and adult sports and recreational programs at www.DreamsportsCenter.com.
