A Chat with Lil Sluggers St. Paul
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We have the lowest student/instructor ratios of any child development sports program, with average class sizes of four to six children. Classes are grouped by age with careful attention to skill level and ages of participants.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? _Come with the expectation of having some fun. Fun is our number one objective. _
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? So much emphasis is placed on the various techniques associated with the game that many forget the fun that goes into it. There are not many options available for baseball training/opportunities for children under eight except summer t-ball programs.
What do you love most about your job? The progress we see in the participants from the beginning to the end of the session. We have the opportunity to teach the fundamentals of the game in a language that kids can understand plus there are times we can be goofy to demonstrate to the kids it is all about fun and games.
