The FirstSwing Foundation is a Washington state non-profit corporation that was created in 2002 in order to teach youth “life’s little lessons” within the fun and exciting environment of baseball and softball. The Foundation’s basic belief is sport(s) is a process and not an end in itself, and that youngsters will learn many life skills by playing and competing. FirstSwing is committed to teaching ALL youngsters, especially the physically and financially challenged, to learn and love the game, and to provide them with positive role models and quality instruction.
FirstSwing provides youth summer camps, tournaments, workouts, skills clinics, parent-coach teaching seminars/clinics, play days, and unique activities to teach the game as well as bond parents and youngsters. One of the major goals is to provide an interactive, fun environment that will aid in the socialization process and empower youngsters to become good, solid, productive citizens, future spouses, parents, and contributors to society!
