Junior Giants sign-ups
Junior Giants is a summer baseball league, run free of charge for children ages 5-18 living in inner cities and rural suburbs throughout Central and Northern California, Oregon and Nevada. This baseball program is unique in that it is non-competitive, placing a higher value on character than wins and losses. Junior Giants works to instill values in the "classroom" of a baseball setting, educating kids on both the game of baseball and the game of life.
More than 13,000 youth participate in Junior Giants each year in over 70 leagues serving over 150 cities. The Giants Community Fund provides jerseys, hats and baseball equipment necessary to run a league. The Fund provides tickets to select Giants games for youth to attend a game.
The program is a non-competitive league, a non-fee program, pitching machines are used and professional training by the Giants is provided to the coaches.
