Baseball Fun for children with a wide range of abilities. The Sean Roberts Baseball Challenger League based in Brookline welcomes children with disabilities ages 7 and up. Registration preference will be given to Brookline Residents and/or students who attend school in Brookline. Neighboring towns are welcome to join if there is space available. No experience necessary, no limitation too great. Children with intellectual, physical, emotional and behavioral challenges can all enjoy being part of a team in this relaxed, supportive environment.
Coaching is provided by parents and volunteers, who are welcome volunteers to assist the children on the field. The volunteers are made up of siblings, family, friends and students seeking community service opportunities.
Sean Roberts Challenger Baseball is a division of Brookline Youth Baseball. Little League fees are required, but Challenger Players do pay significantly less than the standard fee. The fee covers insurance for all players, field maintenance, uniforms, etc.
Registration fee is $50. If you need to request a full or partial fee waiver because of financial hardship, just let me know. Please register on the BYB Website – http://brooklineyouthbaseball.org/
All players will receive a uniform t-shirt and a cap. Players must provide their own glove. Bats and batting helmets are provided. We do have extra gloves available to borrow if you need one.

Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
