URBAN YOUTH ACADEMY ANNOUNCES FALL PROGRAMMING

CINCINNATI (Oct. 21, 2015) — The P&G Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy has announced the fall 2015 clinic schedule for baseball, softball and T-ball.

The Urban Youth Academy in Roselawn offers free, year-round baseball and softball instruction, plus educational and vocational opportunities for boys and girls ages 5-18 residing primarily in urban neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

T-ball Clinics – Sundays from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Oct. 11 – Dec. 13)
• One hour indoor T-ball games for boys and girls ages 5-7 teaching the basics.

Softball Clinics – Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (Oct. 21 – Dec. 16)
• For girls ages 8-18 whose skills range from beginner to intermediate, teaching the basics of hitting, throwing, fielding and pitching.

Baseball Clinics – Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (Oct. 27 – Dec. 15)
• For boys ages 8-13 whose skills range from beginner to intermediate, teaching the basics of hitting, throwing, fielding and pitching.

“Our clinics offer high-level instruction and skills development in addition to conditioning, speed and agility sessions,” said Charley Frank, executive director of the Reds Community Fund. “Participation in our programs at the Urban Youth Academy is intended for boys and girls who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford or have access to this type of programming.”

Buckeye Health Plan (Buckeye), a multi-line health plan serving Medicaid recipients in Greater Cincinnati and throughout Ohio, is a proud sponsor of the Urban Youth Academy’s fall baseball and softball programming.

“We are excited to partner with the Reds Community Fund to offer this program to the Cincinnati community,” said Buckeye President and CEO Bruce Hill. “Our mission at Buckeye is to improve the health of our communities, one person at a time, and what better way for kids to be active and get healthy than by playing baseball and softball.”
