Junior Giants Program

The Junior Giants program is a part of the San Francisco Giants Community Fund. This free baseball program is available due to the generosity of the San Francisco Giants. Participants are not required to pay any registration fees, but are expected to participate all aspects of the program, including the educational and social portions, not just the athletic portion. Participants are encouraged to earn various incentives through the different programs involved, including reading achievements, and character development goals.

Registration Opens April 2024 - TBA
