OUR MISSION

Boys of Summer Baseball LLC  (dba Boys of Summer Baseball and Girls of Summer Softball) is a non-profit limited liability corporation established in 1989.  Based out of Northeast Ohio, we are one of Ohio’s oldest premier amateur baseball organizations still in existence today. We aim to field baseball and softball teams at all age groups from 9u through 18u. We compete locally in Nationally Sanctioned Baseball and Softball Leagues, as well as in local and out-of-state tournaments against highly competitive teams from throughout the United States and Canada.

Our Mission is to teach the integrity of the games of baseball and softball and to help players understand the greatness of these games while learning the life lessons associated with their sport. To guide and enhance the process of advancing to the college or professional level. To provide the best learning atmosphere, the best competition, and the most fun the games of baseball and softball have to offer.

We accomplish this mission by…

  • Reinforcing the positive values that you, as parent(s)/guardian(s), instill in our players, with a great deal of emphasis on attitude, teamwork, hustle, and discipline.

  • Providing a year-round program that dramatically accelerates the development and improvement of our player’s skills through instruction from a wide array of knowledgeable, well-respected coaches and instructors.

  • Continuously searching out new avenues to increase our player’s exposure to next-level opportunities where they can showcase their talent against best-in-class competition.

  • Maintaining our rich tradition of winning.

 

We welcome players, parent(s)/guardian(s) and coaches who are committed to supporting our mission, as well as adhering to all rules and guidelines set forth in our Codes of Conduct and Participation. The Boys/Girls of Summer participation cost covers:

  • For our younger teams, Local league play begins in late April or early May, and for our High School aged teams, immediately following their High School release.   High School release typically happens between the end of May and mid-June depending on the success of each individual High School’s program.

  • Participation in a local fall double header league, tournament team schedule, (or equivalent) beginning in mid to late August, ending in early October.

  • Fields and equipment for the teams.  (baseballs/softballs, training equipment, field rental, umpire fees, etc.)

  • State of the art indoor training facility conveniently located between Canton and Cleveland in Cuyahoga Falls

  • 5-6 tournaments, with typically at least one out of state tournament. 

  • Boys/Girls of Summer uniform and equipment package.

  • Ongoing off season training program starting in September until baseball games start in May.  Note: OHSAA rules prohibit the older Boys/Girls of Summer teams from training during the High School baseball/softball season which typically begins sometime in February.

 

All funds raised by Boys/Girls of Summer, through player participation cost, sponsorships, fund raising, or other means are applied directly toward offsetting the costs of running the organization. The owner, board, and coaches pledge to continue to improve and streamline operations to make participation with the organization as cost efficient as possible without compromising the integrity of the program.
