Ballard Softball Program Gives Back

Your ability to excel in a sport you love may seem like the pinnacle of your career, but it’s merely a chapter in your life story. Take the time to build on something that will lead you far into the future. While the spotlight is shining on you, perform to your best ability, discover how you can give back to the community at large and use that power and knowledge to impact lives in a positive way. If you do, your name, your cause and your legacy will endure.

Lady Bruins Go Christmas Shopping for a Great Cause!

2015 Seniors and Coach Jones

Annually, Coach Jones takes his players to shop for several families in need that participate in the Family Scholar House program.  It is such a wonderful cause if you have not had a chance to check it out please do so at http://familyscholarhouse.org/ .  "Education Is The Key" - Family Scholar House, Inc .  This program is changing lives, families and communites through education. It is a non-profit organization with a mission to end the cycle of poverty by support single-parent students obtaining a four-year college degree. Family Scholar House believe education is necessary to lift families permanently from the intergenerational poverty and homelessness that prevents self-sufficiency. 

The Ballard Lady Bruins Softball team went on a shopping spree with Coach Alan Jones and Coach Kevin Humphrey to assist some needy families this Christmas.  The girls had a great time selecting gifts and wrapping them up for the families.  Coach Jones was able to teach his Lady Bruins an invaluable lesson on the true meaning of giving and how good it feels to do so.
