Under the friendly, watchful eyes of BoulderBird, boys and girls aged 7 through 14 get baseball training from current and former Boulders players. It all goes down in the Boulders' home stadium, Provident Bank Park, so little leaguers get a taste of real-life professional baseball. After an afternoon of practicing their pitches, working on their swing, and crafting their signature home-run shuffle, kids settle in for lunch before being picked up by their parents or guardians.
One of New York’s first all-girl, flat-track roller-derby leagues, Suburbia Roller Derby fells female athletes for sport during fast-moving bouts. Adrenaline-pumping roller-derby games run as two-minute races, or jams, between two opposing teams and one swiftly roller-skating rabbit. Skating in laps, each team’s point-scoring jammer tries to bust through three oncoming blockers tailed by a pivot player to maintain the jam’s pace and yaw. The aggressive game bashes blockers and hammers jammers in close proximity to spectators, forcing onlookers to confront their fears of helmets and kneepads.
The field at TM Baseball & Softball Academy extends both inside and outside letting players play during warm weather, cold weather, or nonexistent indoor snowstorms. During daily training sessions, the TM Baseball & Softball Academy coaching staff helps high school and college-level players–as well as children as young as 3 years old–hone their hitting, defense, and fielding abilities. They also infuse sessions with strength, conditioning, and agility exercises so that players can field line drives and beat mascots during 7th inning dizzy-bat races.
Lifelong paintballers Glen Kapostas and Eric Schreiber founded Yankee Paintball with the aim of introducing new people to their favorite sport on a safe and fair playing field. Their 50 acres of paint-strewn battlegrounds include five different fields, each with a distinct layout and environment. Inflatable obstacles are scattered throughout the Airball Field, the layout of which changes every few weeks to enhance replay value. The 10-acre Castle Field—the largest of the bunch—spans the length of a small hill. Its battlegrounds light up with multi-colored crossfire during team games in which players crouch in bunkers, take shelter behind trees, and hide in the crowded nests of woodland critters.
