SUMMIT, NJ - RollAPair, a baseball and softball mentorship program designed to build relationships between Summit Junior Baseball and Softball (SJBS) Players and Summit High School Players, is gearing up for its third season has welcomed new mentors and players into its 2016 program.

RollAPair, designed to give young players the tools needed to succeed in the game, meets once a week beginning in late March and throughout the spring season.

The program's goal is to instill in baseball and softball players the ideals of teamwork, responsibility, discipline and hard work. Most importantly, RollAPair gets kids excited about the game and builds lifelong bonds between the mentor and the player.

"It's really fun and they teach you a lot in a fun way," says 10 year-old Jack Zotti, a fourth grader who participated last season. Parent, coach, and SJBS board member Chris Zotti concurs,"Volunteer parent-coaches will always be valued for young players. However, getting lessons and direction from a coach who is an actual player at the High School level is extremely powerful. The kids can relate to them as fellow players and they get great coaching from the 'Big Brother-Sister' perspective with RollAPair."

RollAPair will conduct a used equipment drive in Summit elementary schools and the middle school from February 29 through March 11.  Donations of gently used bats, helmets, mitts and cleats are both solicited and appreciated.The equipment collected will be donated by RollAPair to a local town in need.
