During the program, educational sessions will be available for parents and caregivers, while participants will have the opportunity to take part in a clinic where they enhance the fundamentals of the sport, learn about the importance of physical activity, and show off their baseball or golf abilities in a national competition with fellow participants from around the country. To Be Eligible, all applicants must:   (1) Be between the ages of 7 and 18 as of September 19, 2024 (2) Be a resident of Maryland  (3) Have a Bleeding Disorder (4) Have some experience in golf, baseball, basketball or swimming (no need to be an expert! – just some basic knowledge).
