This program is a great opportunity for children of all skill levels and experience. The program will emphasize base running, fielding, hitting, coordination, team play, safety, and fun! The program is split into age groups: 3-4 year olds, 5-6 year olds and new this season Intro-ball for 7-8 year olds. 3 and 4 year olds will use stationary batting tees, foam baseballs, and foam bats for a safe, yet rewarding experience. 5-8 year olds will hit against coach pitched soft baseballs with metal bats in a safe and controlled environment.
7-8 year old Intro-ball is new this year!
This is a great opportunity to keep your son or daughter interested in the game of baseball/softball without a large time commitment or competitive atmosphere. This age group will be very similar to our 5-6 year old program if you have participated with us in the past. We encourage both boys and girls regardless of skill level to join us this summer to keep learning the game of baseball/softball.
It is only mandatory to supply your own fielding glove and water bottle. Cleats are recommended, however not mandatory. Batting gloves are only recommended for ages 5-8, but not mandatory. Baseball pants are not mandatory. No blue jeans or open toe shoes will be allowed. We will supply each team with bats, balls, batting tees, bases, helmets, team hats, and team shirts.
Coaches please volunteer! Contact Michael Prill if interested
