Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We are a team of experienced Baseball and Softball players and coaches living in Wales. We firmly believe that an international, team-based sport like Baseball and Softball benefits the youth and sports community in Wales. Our program is designed to serve youth in disadvantaged communities in Wales. 


Plans:


  • Promoting baseball and softball to all the residents of Wales through establishing a community youth program for the residents of Cardiff, the capital of Wales. 
  • Establishing a team of trained staff and volunteers headquartered in Cardiff serving all aspects of the youth program. 
  • Securing state of the art, covered athletic field partnership rentals on a weekly basis as a base of operations for intro sessions, team practice sessions, seasonal skills camps, and scrimmages. 
  • Overseeing the formation and completion of a construction project 
  • Developing and forming a national team program for international competition. 
  • Running and scaling school programs beginning with target high schools and working backwards through the pipe-line to all eligible ages. 
  • Partnering with local educational programs to provide disadvantaged members with tutoring and higher educational prep mentorship opportunities. 
  • Establishing and registering a Community Interest Company and raising funds from sponsors to become an independently financed and sustainable entity. 
  • Organizing and running sponsor and donor events. 
  • Launching, overseeing, and completing a field construction initiative. 
  • Launching a website and all social media channels. 
  • Securing a local marketing agency  and sports partnership.


Measurable Goals:


  • Purchasing program insurance
  • Establishing regular weekly indoor session for all 50 interested youth who came through our summer 2018 program. 
  • Marketing and running regular promotional intro sessions reaching over 5,000 youth during our first year. 
  • Scaling the high school intro session program to every high school in Cardiff and establishing a high school league with at least 4 full teams of at least 15-20 committed players. 
  • Establishing full committed playing teams for each RBI age group level to practice regularly. 
  • Securing equipment donations and local storage facilities. 
  • Completing a Baseball Tomorrow Fund application for a baseball and softball pitch. 
  • Matching cash grant contributions by securing local partner donations at 30% of operating costs, raising up to $40,000 of local sponsorship funding in the first year, 60% of operating costs in the second year, and 100% of operating costs in the third year.
