Coahoma Youth Baseball sign-ups are going on now through Saturday, Feb. 29th. Ages 14 and under are welcomed to sign up from all over Howard County. Age groups are divided by Ponies, Majors, Minors, and Tee-Ball, and teams are co-ed.
Noel Olivas, Coahoma Youth Baseball Board Member, told KBest News that youth sports are great to get kids outside in fresh air, moving, and learning about wins and losses.
"I still remember a lot of the things my coaches told me, more so than when I was older. I didn't realize how big of an influence they'd be. Now that I'm a 40-year-old man, I still think about them."
Olivas said that the coaches get together to discuss strategies to help kids across the board and make it a good experience for everyone.
Sign-ups will be held from 6-8 pm at the Dairy Queen in Coahoma today, Feb. 24th - Feb. 28th. On Saturday, sign-ups at Dairy Queen in Coahoma will be from 10 am to 12 pm. Cost is $80 per kid, and there are multi-kid discounts available, as well. Plus, there are sponsorship opportunities for those who need it.
