The Orlando Monarchs Leadership Baseball Program is an initiative of Richard Weeks, the father of two sons Rickie and Jemile Weeks, who currently play in Major League Baseball. The program is based in Central Florida utilizing baseball diamonds in Kissimmee and Orlando.
The Orlando Monarchs is successful due to the hundreds of children, parents, volunteers, and sponsors who spend countless hours and money to continue to build a positive experience for our children. The Orlando Monarchs gives these youth a great place to develop the qualities of citizenship, discipline; teamwork and physical wellbeing that will help them become responsible adults in the future.
The Monarchs Academy of Baseball provides a valuable opportunity for kids from 8 to 19 years old to develop their baseball skills and baseball leadership. They receive support to effectively render the fundamentals of the game in a safe, supervised environment and supports an educational routine that highlights pursuing a college education. Our program is in contact with government agencies, local churches, MLB Baseball Players, professional baseball scouts, and many other positive role models in and throughout our business community.
The Orlando Monarchs Program is a private, 501c3 nonprofit organization that is primarily dependent on donations from individuals, businesses and foundations, whose primary focus is helping to ensure that America’s game is revived in economically disadvantaged areas that have lost the culture of baseball.
