Oz Park Baseball Association
Youth athletics creates life forming experiences for children and life changing experiences for the adults who volunteer their time. Specifically, youth baseball provides children the opportunity to develop self-confidence, enhance self-esteem, and improve social skills through healthy competition in a safe environment. Study after study reveal that children who participate in youth sports perform better academically and assimilate better socially. It can be argued that having access to youth athletics is more important in cities such as Chicago where options are often more limited than they are in suburban and small town environments. That is why providing funding for youth sports programs like the Oz Park Baseball Association is critical.
"We are thrilled to have Access One as our partner" stated OPBA President, Steve Randall.
