Junior Giants


Junior Giants 5-13 yrs.

“LOVED this program for my child.  I loved that it was non-competitive and allowed him to just enjoy team work and participation in a positive program.”

Join us for this free non-competitive, CoEd summer baseball program for children ages 5-13 years. Where the focus is on much more than just playing baseball. Throughout the season each participant will have the opportunity to earn incentives by participating in themed activities where the focus is on reading, staying active throughout the summer, healthy eating habits, bully prevention and much more! The entire program is sponsored by the San Francisco Giants Community Fund (that’s right the MLB’s San Francisco Giants baseball team Community Fund).

Volunteers NEEDED: Interested in volunteering? As a free program, the program success is dependent on parent support/involvement so sign up to volunteer today to ensure your child and his/her teammates have a terrific experience. Each team has to have a minimum of 3 registered volunteers, without these volunteers the league will not be possible.  Please register to be a Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Parent, through the registration link that will be provided starting April 3rd.
