As those of you who have been involved with Southborough Youth Baseball probably know, each year the 12-year-old team attends a special training camp in Cooperstown, NY. This year, the organizers are promoting a special fundraiser to help defray costs.

Ninja Challenge Fundraiser for Cooperstown FlyerThe event will take place on March 27 at the Marlborough location of the USA Ninja Challenge. It’s an indoor obstacle course for ages 4-17 that appears to be inspired by the reality show American ninja warriors.

Their website describes it as combining “basic skill sets of gymnastics, rock climbing, cross-training, and athletics.”

Families can register children for a one-hour time slot (first come, first served) for $30 per child. Hours are listed as 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

To reserve a time, attendees should email [email protected] (To complete registration, click here to pay and here to sign a waiver.)

Those unable to participate can still support the cause through the team’s gofundme page:

12u baseball team (cropped image from flyer)Getting to Cooperstown All-Star Village, the birthplace of baseball, is a dream come true for any Little League player! Historically in Southborough, the 12-year-old team had the opportunity to experience the Cooperstown tournament camp with the exception of summers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They grew as players, as a team and created memories they will always remember.

Our team is now made up of 12 people and has the chance to go but we need your help to raise funds to offset the cost of the team training program and transportation! Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!
