T-Ball Division

AGES- 4-6 yrs old 

See age chart to determine child's age

This division is a non competitive division.You will play on Saturdays only. In past years we play 10am and 12noon. Each Team gets a week day practice and Game on Saturday. Watching these young ballplayers improve each week is really fun. This is a great time for parents to introduce sports to their child by being on a team and learning good lessons. We strive to teach the fundamentals of the game with positive encouragement. Our coaches are volunteers and this divisions is where new coaches are born. Most coaches start in Teeball and progress with their child. Friends will be made and a great environment to be apart of.

Dont need to have a baseball background to coach TeeBall but a desire to be a positive role model. Their are many tools at our disposal for new coaches to learn how to accomplish the goal of a successful teeball season.  Parents will be a big part in this division. As the players get older, they will mature quickly on a baseball field. In TeeBall the kids at these ages will not always perform as planned, but that is expected and the kids will make us all smile as they learn the game. The main goal is to introduce the game, teach the basics, learn the fundamentals and celebrate the learning process the whole way thru.

For 6 yr olds they can go either to teeball or Coach pitch. We highly recommend any 6 yr old to come to our spring assessment to ensure they are ready or if they need to stay down in Teeball. 

For the 7 yr olds they can go to either Coach Pitch or Machine pitch. The more competitive 7s can play in the Machine Pitch Division if they are selected.

Coach pitch division is for 6 and 7 yr old players. The division will have a coach pitch to the batters, their will be a certain limit to number of pitchers thrown to the batter. This allows the players to adjust to hitting a live pitched ball.
