Elings Fields at Girsh Park is the home of several youth baseball programs. Dos Pueblos Little League was the first to call Girsh Park home in 1999, but has played on on this block since 1974. Since then several new baseball programs have sprouted up, and we now offer year round baseball programs and leagues for youngsters to enjoy. There are programs for all ability and age groups including the Challengers Baseball Program focused on serving special needs children. We also offer several programs run by Jacob Pepper the president of Full Count Fundamentals Baseball Instruction including: Goodland Baseball Tournaments, Diamond Performance Training, and the G-Land Developmental Baseball Club Program.

Girsh Park is the home of the local division of the United States Youth Volleyball League. Their mission is to provide every child between the ages of 7 and 15 a chance to learn and play volleyball in a fun, safe, supervised environment. One of the main tenets of the program is to encourage children to do their best with their abilities. With an emphasis on positive reinforcement, the program seeks to build confidence and self-esteem in each child. The league usually plays in the Harriett Phillips Meadow on Tuesdays after school as well as Saturdays. Click on the link to find out more information about this great program.
