For assistance with Adaptive Recreational Baseball League,
2018 ARBL Registration OpenUpdated Saturday April 21, 2018 by Boys Baseball of Aurora BBA.
Registration for the 2018 ARBL Season is now open! BBA is proud that this program continue to grow as it enters its 5th Season!
Not only are we looking for participants, but we are also looking for BUDDIES! Buddies help practice with the athletes before the game, assist them with hitting, fielding and running as required during the game, and most importantly act as their friend on the field / cheerleader.
This is a program for youth with cognitive and physical challenges, helping them to enjoy participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of ARBL is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, which are hallmarks of Boys Baseball of Aurora. Adaptive Recreational Baseball will provide a structured, athletic activity for all youth in Aurora and the surrounding communities. Playing with the same equipment on the same fields, ARBL participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.
Any girl or boy who will attain the age of five (5) before May 1, 2018 through young adults shall be eligible to compete in Boys Baseball of Aurora's Adaptive Recreational Baseball League. Boys and girls from the entire Aurora area, as well as surrounding communities, may register for participation. Every athlete participating in the ARBL must have a cognitive or physical disability that prevents them from playing in other leagues.
Boys Baseball of Aurora will assign athletes to teams on a week by week basis depending on the number of participants that show up that day. All participants will be able to play each week they show up, no one will sit out. Players will receive a cap from Boys Baseball of Aurora with a t-shirt adorned with the ARBL/BBA logo accompanied by their favorite number and name on the back.
