Give your child a gift to remember for a lifetime: a birthday party with friends, fun and games at The Hitting Zone at Rend Lake College.
Children can pick teams for a game of whiffle ball, or practice for that game-winning homer while enjoying free reign of the batting cages. And you won’t have to do the organizing all alone. The Hitting Zone will provide invitations, birthday cake, party bags, plates, cups, napkins and other ingredients for a great time.
Parties at the 80-foot-by-100-foot facility are 90 minutes long and party times are available Saturday afternoons and evenings and Sunday afternoons.
The Hitting Zone, located on the south side of the Rend Lake College campus in Ina, is a training facility dedicated to the enhancement of baseball and softball skills and the physical well-being of Southern Illinois athletes. The facility features an artificial turf surface throughout, three batting cages, two pitching mounds, a videotaping and viewing room and an observation deck for parents and guests.
Participants can receive instruction in hitting, pitching, fielding, catching, throwing, baserunning/sliding, baseball rules and situations, attitude and much more. Instruction is available for individuals, groups of six to eight players or for entire teams.
While enjoying the birthday festivities, ask about the Little Warriors program for players ages 5 to 8.
