  • We have a student at our high school who is very interested in starting a Buddy Ball (baseball) rec league here in Goochland!  This student participated in Buddy Ball when he lived in Fluvanna and is super motivated to bring the sport here.  For those of you who do not know, Buddy Ball allows kids with significant disabilities the opportunity to play alongside students without disabilities.  Please complete this google form if 1) you are interested in helping this high school student to create the league and/or 2) if you are interested in your son/daughter participating in Buddy Ball once the league is started.
I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!
