T-Ball                          4 –  8 yrs           Sunday morning.      Oct – Dec  10am – 11am

 

T-ball is a fun, entry level program for boys and girls aged 4-8 yrs.  The batter hits a softer ball off a stand, or tee.  There is no pitcher throwing the ball.

Otherwise, it’s essentially the same as baseball, with fielding, running and catching.  The emphasis is on participation, fun and skill development.

Playing registration includes a club cap and t-shirt.  There is no additional training day and no regular inter-club competition.

Active parent involvement and participation in the game is supported and encouraged.

 

Under 12’s         Friday night.            Oct – Feb         Time varies with summer daylight.   Approx. 6pm – 7:30pm

Friday night junior competition during summer is a great way to get into baseball, or in transitioning from T-ball.  The base distances are shorter and there are slightly modified game rules for children.

Home and Away games TBA.

The emphasis is on having fun in a team, and providing players with the skills for playing baseball.  Balmy summer nights create an enjoyable family environment and is a great start to the weekend.

Parental assistance during games is needed for scoring, coaching, field set up, and canteen help.
