Ozzie's Reading Club

Ozzie's Reading Club is an eight-week reading incentive program sponsored by the Kane County Cougars. The program is open to children in grades K-8; however, to participate, a student's school must be a member of the Ozzie's Reading Club program.

Ozzie's Reading Club tracks the progress of a student's reading around the bases of a baseball diamond with the three bases and home plate representing two weeks worth of reading. Each teacher may determine his or her own reading requirements for each base. Students completing the program's requirements "hit a home run" and earn a free ticket to an April or May Cougars game designated by their school. Other rewards may include a bookmark, a voucher for a hot dog and soda as well as an official Ozzie Reading Club drawstring bag.

Teachers who are interested in registering for Ozzie's Reading Club in 2014 are encouraged to contact program coordinator Amy Mason at (630) 232-8811 or by email at
