Life changing, rewarding and memorable have all been ways to describe hosting a Kelowna Falcon player over the recent years.
The Kelowna Falcons are on the search for a few great families for the upcoming West Coast League Baseball season to be a host/billet family to some outstanding student athletes.
Players begin to arrive in Kelowna at the beginning of June and are gone again by mid-August following the season. Due to the major league style schedule, players are only at home for half this time, while on the road for the other half. Host families receive an unbelievable summer directly impacting the life of a young student athlete, while learning about a different culture and the ins and outs of baseball.
Falcons’ players, who are 18-22 years old, have been trained to be responsible, self sufficient and extremely helpful. These student athletes are coming from extremely prestigious baseball programs and are coming to Kelowna to work and build on their craft.
Host families receive a grocery allowance, two season tickets and a special BBQ at the end of the season.
If you’re interested in getting involved and impacting a young student athlete, contact the Falcons headquarters via email to General Manager Mark Nonis (email@example.com) or call 250-763-4100.
First of all, thank you to all the people who came out to our first annual Pitch, Hit and Run event on March 29th. We had over 90 kids participate, some of whom traveled from as far away as Kaleden and Salmon Arm.
Below is a list of all competition winners, including the overall winner from each division.
The winners in each skill and the overall winner of each division are eligible to compete in the Sectional Compeition that will be held some time between Mid-May and the end of June at a location to be determined at a later date. Please check http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/kids/mlb_pitch_hit_run.jsp for information on date and location of the next competition.
Congratulations to all the winners!
