I vote for…civic engagement

As we like to say at the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, we harness sports as a vehicle to capture kids’ attention and provide a concrete way to teach them life’s lessons.  Right now, you can’t turn on a television or open up a social media site without being bombarded by news, opinions, and speculation about the men and women currently seeking public office.  Why not harness that?

Share your story to help kids choose their futures

Choosing the path that we want to take for our future can be difficult. There may be some obstacles or unexpected challenges that come in your way that may make you feel like quitting, but it is up to you whether you continue to strive for your goals. A strong work ethic and the decision of making positive choices gives us the ability to reach these goals that we set for ourselves. We can set both short and long-term goals that can help us accomplish our dreams.

Celebrate the Individual with the HCHC: Adaptive Sports Edition

One of the key principals of “The Ripken Way” is to celebrate the individual. When you work with kids, you quickly learn that each kid is different—each has their strengths and their weaknesses, and also their own way of playing and learning.  It’s up to you as a coach to reinforce their strengths and help them build skills and improve where they can.
