T-ball & Instructional Baseball
T-BALL: This program is for children entering K & 1st grades. Players hit from a T and are introduced to the basics of sanctioned baseball. This program starts in the beginning of May with registration opening in mid February for our spring season, and starts in late September for our new fall season. Teams play either one weeknight at 5p or 6p (either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday), and at 9am on Saturday mornings, or they play two weeknights. The fee for this program is $38 per player with a discount for families registering 3 or more players.
INSTRUCTIONAL BASEBALL: In this program, an adult pitches to the player. It is the next step in preparing for sanctioned baseball. Children entering grades 1-3 are eligible. However, those entering 1st grades must have one year of T-Ball prior to registering. This is not a requirement for those entering grades 2 & 3. This program starts in the beginning of May with registration opening in mid February for the spring, and starts in July for the new fall program. Teams play either one weeknight at 5p or 6p (either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday), and at 11am on Saturday mornings, or they play two weeknights.
