THE SUNNYVALE JUNIOR GIANTS ARE BACK!
Junior Giants News – 2021 Season
We will offer in-person programming for Junior Giants this summer!
Our program is free, non-competitive, open to boys and girls between 5 and 13, focuses on character development in a fun and entertaining way, and has a variety of options.
OPTIONS and ACTIVITIES—On The Field
For boys and girls, 5 to 13 years old. Former players 14 and over can volunteer as Junior Assistant Coaches.
On-field season dates: mid-June to mid-August for both baseball and softball—will add softball if there are enough interested players
We will work within Santa Clara County COVID protocols to ensure the safety of our players, families, and volunteers to provide these expected options:
1. Full 8-week schedule of baseball or softball:
practices and games as before, one evening practice a week for each team, games on Saturday, Words of the Week*, and fun activities for all players ages 5 to 13.
2. Skills and Drills activities:
IF we’re not able to play full games and practices as above, we will help players learn and practice baseball/softball skills weekly, with Words of the Week*, and activities focusing on fun and health.
*Words of the Week are intertwined with all activities and include: Confidence, Integrity, Teamwork, Leadership, Health, Education (including a reading program), and Anti-Bullying.
3. A combination of #1 and #2 depending on County protocols.
OPTIONS and ACTIVITIES—Virtual Programs

For a quick look at players saying what they like about participating in Junior Giants, see this excellent video produced by the Giants Community Fund for the recent Play Ball Lunch:
The Sunnyvale PAL Junior Giants has been designated an Exemplary League for the past few years due to the feedback from participants, our adherence to budget and retention, and our successful implementation.
In 2019, the league attained DIAMOND LEAGUE STATUS, the highest honor a league can achieve! We are in the top 23% of the 90 leagues in the Junior Giants network.
These honors are due in part to the dedication of our volunteers. Why don’t you join us? It’s fun and rewarding! And we provide a lot of guidance and support to enable your success.
Go Junior Giants!
