Our Mission is to provide all of the youth of Buffalo Grove, regardless of their ability, a positive baseball
experience: by promoting the principles of good sportsmanship and fair play; by teaching, encouraging, and
supporting sound baseball fundamentals through good coaching; and by ensuring that all youth have a safe, fun, yet
challenging opportunity to enjoy the game of baseball.
The Buffalo Grove Recreation Association, or BGRA, is a non-profit corporation, serving the Buffalo Grove
community. We are not a part of the Buffalo Grove Park District, although park district facilities are used.
This is a volunteer program conducted by your neighbors and friends as part of the total recreational program of the
community. Over 1,500 players participate annually in this community-based program, administered with the help of
over 600 volunteers, our board of directors, team managers, base coaches, business managers and scorekeepers.
That's a lot of VOLUNTEER HOURS spread over a great many people. But in order for the program to succeed, we
encourage every parent to participate, and CONTRIBUTE TIME & EFFORT to their child's team, the league and
the association as a whole.
