As you may be aware, there is a greater emphasis today in youth sports on preventing, recognizing, and obtaining immediate treatment of concussions and head injuries. Please read and follow the policy for SKSA Youth Baseball participants.
The Spring-Klein SuperStars Baseball Program is for our baseball players ages 5-18 with physical, emotional, or mental challenges.
We want to encourage everyone to come out and cheer on these players when they play.
SuperStars Baseball Information
Superstars do not practice. This is a low key, very flexible program especially designed for baseball players with exceptional needs.
You are welcome to come to the games early and work with your child if you'd like. NO need for any special equipment. You are, of course, welcome to bring your own equipment, but there is some to share.

Instructions for Buddy Teams
What is a buddy? A buddy is baseball player or any individual who is ready and willing to assist the Superstars players needing help playing the game of baseball.
What is expected of a buddy? As a buddy you will be expected to assist players in batting, running to base, running home, fielding, waiting, being ready, being safe, etc. Some Superstars may want you to hold their hand, while others may not care to be touched. Some may not be able to talk to you, but that doesn't mean they have nothing to say. And, just because someone doesn't talk, doesn't mean they can't hear or feel. So, be careful with your words and keep them positive and uplifting! Superstars love the attention and help they receive from their buddies!
Keeping Superstars engaged in the game is sometimes hard to do! But, with lots of encouragement it can be done! Our buddies are never left on their own. There is always a Superstars parent within reach.
