Tuckahoe Sports (TSI) strives to support our community thru partnerships that are integral to advancing our mission. Thru partners such as Henrico County, Tuckahoe Little League, Police Athletic League, and Enrichmond we offer our time and talents to partner on several annual initiatives.
Students from 22 Henrico County elementary schools will take to the baseball field Oct. 17 and learn how to field, hit and run the bases. The students will take part in Challenger Day, an annual event that introduces students with significant disabilities to the fundamentals of baseball. The students will also enjoy games, crafts, therapy dogs, roaming mascots and a picnic lunch. More than 350 students are expected to attend, and volunteers – many from Capital One – will be on hand to work with the students in grades K-5 and their teachers.
Challenger Day is an offshoot of the Challenger Division of Little League Baseball, a league for children with cognitive and physical disabilities. The program helps provide participants with some of the benefits of athletic competition: exercise, socialization, teamwork, sportsmanship and self-esteem.
The event is a joint collaboration of the Henrico Education Foundation, Capital One, I Have a Dream Foundation-Richmond, the Henrico County Department of Recreation and Parks, Henrico County Public Schools and Tuckahoe Sports.
TSI provides programming during the Henrico County Summer Camp program advocating for youth fitness thru the participation in team sports.
