This summer, Chileda sponsored two inaugural softball teams, a co-ed team and a men’s team. These teams are comprised of 1st and 2nd shift staff, Direct Support Professionals, Leads, Case Mangers, Rec Staff and more. It has been an amazing opportunity for the team members to get to know each other better and to role model for the community some of the values that Chileda expounds: teamwork, fair play and respect. Each team has improved throughout the season with victories coming more frequently every week. While each team’s aim is to make a deep playoff run, the goal has always been to participate in the longest Chileda team builder in recent memory. And while none of the players will get “credit hours” for the training, the experiences and memories we all have are the best reward. Look for signups next Spring if you want to be a part of this wonderful experience.
