T-ball (boys & girls / ages 4-7) - Typically pre-k to 1st Grade
For boys and girls born between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2015 with little or no baseball experience. T-ball is geared toward first year players in Kindergarten and 1st grade, as well as a few older pre-K players. Emphasis is on the basics of catching, throwing, hitting, and learning a few basic rules of baseball. Softer balls are used and hitters hit off of a rubber tee with the help of a coach. Generally, players are ready to move to the next level after one year of T-ball, but some younger players may need two years of T-ball. Teams are formed with a maximum of 15 players per roster. Teams will be expected to play and/or practice 2-3 times per week.
This is specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball that is grounded in fundamentals, teamwork, and having fun. Your T-Ball player will learn the following basics during their season:
- How to properly grip the ball
- How to rotate your body and take a rhythm step toward the target
- How to catch the ball when thrown
- How to set-up for a ground ball
- Understand the general idea of getting the out at first base
- How to properly swing the bat and hit off a tee
- How to run through first base, and stop at the others
- Understand the idea of a force out and a tag out
- How to be a supportive teammate
- How to treat coaches and opponents with respect.
