Valparaiso – Leagues

Valparaiso Information:

Our sports leagues focus on skill development, sportsmanship, and having fun.

 

While all athletic programs have a competitive component, our leagues focus more on learning the game and having fun.

 

All volunteer coaches have background checks done, and are expected to uphold the ideals of the Boys & Girls Clubs.

 

All players are guaranteed adequate playing time, and a chance to try all positions.

 

Your child’s annual Club membership gives them access not only to our athletic leagues, but also to all of our year-round programming.
