Week 5: Softball

WEEK 5: SOFTBALL

During this program, PLEASE ADHERE TO CDC AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS GUIDELINES. Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay home. Save lives.

Some alternative options for a baseball include: play ball, tennis ball, or basically any small ball that can be tossed or thrown, etc. GET CREATIVE if you don't have access to a baseball, bat, and/or glove.

For some activities, cones may be needed. If you don't have cones, feel free to use any other type of object in your house that can be used as an obstacle or barrier for the sport.

A FEW REMINDERS:
Make sure your team is registered.

Each week a new set of missions will be released. To complete each mission you must submit a photo/video to us via the event page. When you submit your photos/videos, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU HASHTAG THE FOLLOWING: YOUR TEAM NAME, THE ACTIVITY HASHTAG, AND #MCRDHSC so we can assign points correctly. Once a week has ended, those missions will no longer be available to complete.  Mission entries will ONLY be accepted on the event Facebook page. 

Again, thanks for taking the initiative to stay active and continue staying involved with sports during this time. I will do my best along with MCRD to make this a memorable family program. If you have any questions or needs for the program, please email me at sparham@madisonco.us. ENJOY the MCRD Home Sports Challenge!
