The Katie at the Bat Team Mission Statement:
The Katie At The Bat Team is dedicated to empowering inner-city youth to achieve their full potential through participation in athletics. The organization operates both all-girls as well as coed programs. A long term, intensive approach is taken as the organization operates school-year programs, summer camp opportunities and works with participants over a period of years. The Katie At The Bat Team promotes partnerships which use athletics as a means to bridge urban and suburban neighbors providing meaningful interactions for the combined larger community. All programs incorporate character development, leadership training, nutrition, fitness and academic assistance while providing long term support from coaches and volunteers. The aim is to affect the life trajectory of Katie athletes, steering them to make healthy life choices, experience success, and become active contributing members of society.
