Our Sponsors

The value of participating in sports to learning values and skills associated with initiative, social cohesion, self-control, persistence, and responsibility are proven.   A big part of positive youth development is complemented by the importance of sport in acquiring skills that are beneficial in other domains (e.g., school, family, work) that lead to better adaptive skills.

Lakeside Baseball Youth Sports Foundation is a federally recognized 501-3C.  We are seeking sponsors to help defray the costs of our youth baseball programs and to further promote our objective to maintaining positive physical and mental development of area children.
