SPS Little Sluggers

Spokane Public Schools Little Sluggers

Spokane Public Schools, in collaboration with Spokane Indians Youth Baseball & Softball, is thrilled to announce the launch of the “Little Sluggers Program,” an exciting new youth baseball league set to kick off in the fall of 2024.

Designed to introduce the joy of baseball to our youngest athletes in the Spokane community, the Little Sluggers Program offers Co-ed T-Ball to students from incoming Pre-K through 1st grade in a six-week season packed with fun and development opportunities. The program will feature five games, providing youngsters with a chance to showcase their skills while learning teamwork in a supportive environment.

SIYBS will provide a shirt and hat, batting helmets, tees, bats for the team to share, and game balls. Teams will be build with the hope to keep every child with their classmates at their elementary schools.
 
If you would like to introduce your little to the game of baseball and have some fun then Little Sluggers is the right choice!
