Chinooks Host Family Program

Are you interested in helping out a potential Major League Baseball player?  The Lakeshore Chinooks are looking for Host Families for the upcoming 2015 summer season.  The players are collegiate players from across the country.  Host Families provide a room for the player, occasional meals and potentially transportation.  In turn you get to know a potential big league baseball player, complimentary tickets to all Chinook home games, 10% off team merchandise, make a positive impact on the future of a young man and much more.

For more information go to the Chinooks web site.  You may apply online to become a Chinook Host Family.  Additional information is available HERE.

Additional questions can be directed to Nancy and Mark Koehler.  Not only are Nancy and Mark the Chinook Host Family Coordinators, they also have hosted players for the past three seasons (one was signed by the Miami Marlins).


Challengers League Buddy Volunteers Needed!

The Challenger team is for individuals ages 4-18 (or up to 21 if still enrolled in high school) who have physical or developmental disabilities.  We need volunteers to be one-on-one buddies for our Challenger players.  Buddies assist the players by teaching them the rules of the game and encouraging the players to bat and make plays as much as they can on their own.

We are looking primarily for high school and college aged volunteers; however younger teens will be considered for our younger players.

If you are interested in volunteering as a buddy, please contact Chris VandenHouten at 262-376-0668 or van_houten@sbcglobal.net.


New Little League Complex

We broke ground in October, 2013 for our new Little League complex; we continue to fundraise and solicit potential donors.  As you can imagine, a project of this size requires the efforts of many volunteers to make it successful.  Please consider volunteering to help with this project; your efforts will be a legacy for our community for decades to come.  Click HERE for current information.


Sponsors

We are very fortunate to have a core group of loyal sponsors that have been with us for several years; we also have new sponsors join us each year.  It is through the generosity of these sponsors that we are able to continue to offer our little league program.  Please review our current list of sponsors and consider using them for your needs and services when possible.


Board of Directors Meetings

The Grafton Little League Board of Directors meet the first Tuesday of each month at the Grafton Senior Center.  Aug-Apr meetings start at 7pm, May-Jul meetings start at 8pm.  All are welcome to come and share ideas and\or concerns.
