APIL Skills Testing for Tball League Starting Soon

Ascension Parish Inclusion League had an event this past Saturday. The children were involved in skill testing for the upcoming t ball league.

Bright colored tees were lined up to assess the hitting skills.
Gloves with velcro balls were used for throwing and catching.

Everyone got on home plate to go over the bases and general rules.

As always, there is one on one interaction by both volunteers and parents.
Volunteers help each other with suggestions, comments and guidance.

This is a picture of the new swing that was made possible by the grant APIL received. It has two sets of swings, one for a wheelchair and one regular on each side creating an arrangement that allows someone in a wheelchair to swing along side someone who is not. The base will be constructed by the parish and should be ready for the Spring. It is the first one of it's kind in the parish and we are thrilled to be able to have this available in our community.

Next APIL Event is February 23rd at 10AM. Location may change to Donaldsonville. I'll post the information when it is decided.
Tball League Registration is Monday, March 10th at 5:30PM. LSU Tiger Baseball team members will be available for pictures and autographs.
APIL is a non-competitive inclusive recreation league for children with or without disabilities (ages 4-13) to participate together in recreational activities and games.
