*Captains Reading Program *
The Captains Reading Program is a free, turn-key, incentive-based program that aims to help students discover the joys and rewards of reading. As students work towards their reading goals set by their individual educators, they will earn Captains prizes along the way. Last year, the Reading Program had readers from Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, and Lake counties, with over 2,000 teachers and nearly 36,000 students participating.
Upon completing the program, students will be rewarded with a complimentary ticket to a Lake County Captains home game* Participating teachers will also receive a complimentary ticket.
If you are an educator interested in participating in the 2023 Captains Reading Program, please contact Kenny Cole at 440-975-8085 or [email protected].
