Our non profit programs involve childhood enrichment and community outreach. We want every child to have an opportunity to get involved in all that is offered at BVSA."

For its non-profit programs, the Bobby Valentine's Sports Academy, offers points that can be accumulated and then redeemed within the facility for everything from cage rentals to camps & clinics. One of their programs is the Line Drive Book Club
BVSA has teamed up with Borders Book Store with a goal of getting kids to read more. The program is a book and gain points. Young athletes can find a book at the BVSA facility, sign it out and then read it. Once they're done, athletes are asked to put together a one page essay that explains the book. BVSA encourages kids of all ages to take advantage of the rewards and they welcome any and all book donations.
