Rip-It For Life

RIP IT FOR LIFE believes that socio-economic challenges should not be an impediment to their journey to be better players, and to be better people. RIP IT FOR LIFE identifies a smaller number of children, but takes a more in-depth approach to their development, both on the field and off. The goal is to give the athletes more "hopes and dreams" type training."

RIP IT FOR LIFE will select kids that may not have the economic wherewithal to get top notch baseball and softball training. And off the field - RIP IT FOR LIFE can provide an additional shoulder to lean on when necessary.

RIP IT FOR LIFE Instruction is provided by Rip It Batting Cages and Baseball & Softball Skill Training Professional Coaches, including: Mike Spidale, Two-Time R-Phils MVP and All-Time Reading Hit King, Steve Schrenk, Philadelphia Phillies Triple-A Pitching Coach, Clarence Curry, Personal Trainer Team Works Sports Academy, and other highly qualified coaches.

RIP IT FOR LIFE is open to those that have a passion for baseball and/ or softball but may not have the financial means to get specialized training. RIP IT FOR LIFE would love to add more kids to the program for more information or to get involved with the RIP IT FOR LIFE Program, please contact Stephen Thomas at 610-370-BALL or via email at [email protected]
