This program is designed to teach the fundamentals of baseball and softball to girls and boys. This program emphasizes individual growth, cooperation, and fair play as opposed to competition. All games are played as controlled scrimmages - no score is kept. In order to provide a positive learning experience we use a ball designed for safety while at the same time develops confidence and skills.

All leagues will play a 10 game schedule. Age restrictions are based upon social skills and appropriate age groupings as opposed to athletic skills.

Preschool Baseball Clinic

2-3 year-old class (parent participation required) - Children will learn how to throw a ball overhand, field with 2 hands, improve hand-eye coordination, and making contact with baseball off the tee. Fun games and relays will help to reinforce the skills.
4 year-old class - Children will learn throwing, fielding (with a glove), hitting, and base running techniques. We will focus on children swinging through the baseball off the tee, getting children to throw harder and to specific targets. Small sided games will be played toward the end of class. Introduction to sliding and further base recognition is covered. It’s a thoughtful mix of fun and learning.
