Child Focus Helps Reds Rookie Success League
The Reds Rookie Success League of Clermont County hosted its sixth year of the program in 2017 and was held at the Batavia Township Community Center. The program relies on volunteer coaches to help insure a great experience for all kids. Thanks to the Clermont County Mental Health & Recovery Board, Child Focus Qualified Mental Health Specialists were able to assist in coaching and mentoring over 200 children.
The Reds Rookie Success League (RRSL), a free, coed, character-building summer baseball program, completed its fifteenth summer in Cincinnati and throughout Reds Country in June. The Reds Rookie Success League is an introductory baseball program for boys and girls who normally would not be able to afford this type of program. It features baseball instruction while focusing on a character-based curriculum and the "Six Stars of Success" - Cooperation, Integrity, Respect, Education, Determination and Spirit (CI REDS). Programs run two days a week for four weeks in Butler County and Dayton, for four days a week for two weeks in Clermont County and Cincinnati, and for six weeks in Louisville. Each program features visits from Reds players and coaches, or from Dayton Dragons or Louisville Bats personnel.
