Kids play needs adults

More than 30 children shared in the joy of swinging a bat and running the bases this spring at Seaton Park.

Minor league ball is wrapping up in Lake Country. Parents need to step up to organize a continuation of the program.

Over 30 children have shared in the joy of swinging a bat and running the bases this spring at Seaton Park.

In the Play Ball program operated out of the recreation department at the District of Lake Country, children and their parents have come together to create lifelong memories. The six-week season is wrapping up.

Those memories should be made available to the entire community said, leisure services coordinator Sheila Gunn.  She is hoping members of the community will volunteer and step forward to re-launch minor ball in Lake Country.

“We had teams years ago when we were a smaller community. We can do it again if parents will volunteer to organize a league,” said Gunn.

Gunn will provide information, including field times and even equipment so long as parents and community members come together to launch and operate the program.

“We have equipment, fields and kids. What we need are parents to take the lead and get minor ball back in Lake Country.”

If there is any interest at all, Gunn will help set up the first meeting.  The goal is an all in Lake Country league that has local kids on local teams, playing each other.

“It is fun, local, minor softball. We need to get the little ones involved and playing in sport.

“This is another option to get kids out and playing. That is what it is really about,” said Gunn.

To be a part of creating something fun, call Gunn at the district office, 250-766-1485.
