The organization is committed to a multi-faceted approach. All of our programs incorporate leadership training, character development, nutrition, fitness and academic assistance while providing long-term support from coaches and volunteers to help Katie athletes make positive life choices. The organization started with a focus on girls’ empowerment through sport, but has expanded to include all-girls programs as well as coed programs. In order to achieve the greatest degree of long term positive impact the organization provides programming throughout the school year, into the summer and over a period of years. The Katie At The Bat Team provides school-year programs and summer camp opportunities, and creates partnerships which use athletic as a means to bridge urban and suburban communities.
