November 2018:

 

Progress is continuing to be made at the school. In the next couple of days, there will be a significant meeting that will take place between the AVRS school, the Uganda Commissioner of Sports and three members of the Los Angels Dodgers. This meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 6. It was planned over two months ago. The representative of the LA Dodgers are coming to inform the Commissioner about what the Dodgers are planning to do to enhance the development of baseball and softball in Uganda. Currently, no information is being discussed publicly, and will only be make known after the meeting. The one thing that can be made public is that the Dodgers will be doing a number of things at the AVRS Secondary School starting January 2019, and continuing on for a number of years, depending upon how successful 2019 turns out to be. This activity, along with the education aspect of the school, potentially will make it the most unique school in the World.


November marks the end of the school year in Uganda. As such, our first group of students to enter the school in January 2013 will be taking their last exams and will be leaving the school to hopefully advance their education at various universities in 2019. One of our students will be advancing his education in the United States. Based upon the baseball talents he displayed on the trip to Florida in June and in Minneapolis in August, he was invited to spend two weeks at a special program in early October. While there, a college baseball coach has offered him a full scholarship to attend his college and play baseball for the school starting in January 2019. While our goal was to get a number of our students scholarships to attend Universities based upon their athletic and academic abilities, he is the first one to do that at a U.S. college.


This being November, the AVRS school has once again visited the north country in our quest to find good students who can potentially do well academically and athletically. They will help make up the class that will start at the AVRS school this January. This time we sent two coaches and a teacher to evaluate the applicants. We fell that this incoming class will be much better then some prior ones. We will find out over the next six years with the help of the LA Dodgers.


This coming January, we will once again be hosting our January tournaments for the best Secondary School baseball teams from the S1-S3 students and the best softball teams for students S1-S6. This year, we expect to be adding a tournament for the S4-S6 boys. This will be the first one for the older boys. We will announce the dates and tournament order in the very near future. All three tournaments must be finished by January 21, the first day of classes at the AVRS school.

 


 

The Trenton Thunder supplied the hats and shirts that the team wore in Poland.  The Trenton team was rooting for them to win so that they could come to the U.S. and visit the Trenton stadium and be introduced to the media and the crowd at a Trenton Thunder ball game.   Uganda would have been the first African Little League team to make it to the Little League World Series in its almost 80 year history.
