Urban Youth Academy requests your help!

UYA Softball

Good Evening from the Urban Youth Academy in Compton, CA.  As the year winds down, baseball and softball instruction is heating up. 

The Softball program has been growing by leaps and bounds in just past few weeks and now we are dire need of girls softball equipment. 

There has been so much excitement and participation by the local youth, that the Academy now has a serious shortage of girls softball equipment.

We are asking all those who have supported the Urban Youth Academy to join us once again and help the Urban Youth Academy in providing the necessary equipment for the more than 90 young ladies who participate to have the chance to play this great game.

We are looking for:

  • Girls’ softball bats
  • Girls Softball gloves
  • Girls softballs
  • Batting helmets with masks
  • Catching gear
  • Elbow and knee padding

If you have any of this equipment, new or used, please contact Zee Aguilar at 310-763-3479 ext 0 or Darren Smith at 310-763-3479 ext 5 to make arrangements for dropping off or just come by the Academy Monday-Saturday 9am-6pm to drop off the equipment.

Baseball/Softball Clinic was a good time had by all!

Baseball may be drawing to a close in the Major Leagues, but at the Urban Youth Academy, it’s the time to start teaching the youth the great game of baseball. 

This past Saturday, we had our Baseball/Softball clinic at the Academy for kids ages 7-15.  With over sixty kids on hand for professional instruction, we can confidently call the day a success. 

To change up the blog a little, I’ve posted a flickr slideshow with some pictures to show off the day.  I hope everyone had a great time and can’t wait for more baseball!
