Little Fenway

On June 24, 2022, SLAMT1D purchased the iconic Little Fenway complex thanks to the many generous donors committed to keeping this magical place a “home away from home” for game-changing nonprofits. We are honored to grow the spirit of generosity and kindness synonymous with Little Fenway by continuing to support diverse communities in need.
Off-season plans and updates to ensure that the life-changing magic at the greatest WIFFLE ball venue in the world continues for years to come are underway. We hope to see you at the 12th Annual Vermont Summer Classic WIFFLE Ball Tournament August 11-13, 2023!

STAY IN THE GAME. DO WHAT YOU LOVE DOING. DON’T LET T1D SIDELINE YOU.

Are you a student-athlete looking for a sport-specific tip or are you just needing a re-charge from someone who’s been there? Are you a parent with questions or concerns about your favorite T1Der and their physical activities. SLAMT1D is here to help you stay in the game.

What’s your sport? Football? Basketball? Hockey? Baseball? Find yours here.

What’s your game plan? Your Playbook gives you helpful ways to keep you in the game.

Huddle up with your SLAMT1D team of student-athletes, parents and friends for game-changing support
