Taking Back Youth Sports
How do trends in private lessons price out low-income youth from sports? Watch the video below to see how RBI Austin is stepping up to the plate to provide quality, competitive baseball and softball for inner-city Austin youth.
A growing trend in youth sports is private instruction to take a player’s game to the next level.
But here’s a curveball, unfortunately private lessons typically cost $50 – $100/hour or several hundred dollars per month.
It’s a different ball game for inner-city Austin youth.
This extra several hundred dollars a month prices out youth from low-income families.
RBI Austin is stepping up to the plate.
At our RBI Austin 12U Baseball Academy, our 12U players are being trained twice a week by high-level instructors. Our instructor list includes former college players, including a recently graduated Texas Longhorn baseball player!
We just might have some future Longhorn players on these teams.
