INTRO

SATURDAY ONLY 

This program will be a fun introduction to the game.  Basic fundamentals and rules of the game will be taught; the direction of base running, running through 1st base, touching each base, not throwing the bat, force outs. NO COACH PITCH. This allows the game to move more quickly and keep the players engaged.  This also allows all players a better opportunity of making good contact with the ball. All players bat and field. Maximum players per team: 9; 2 coaches. 

MODIFIED

practices (one a week) M-F; games Saturday 

This program will begin teaching basic fundamental techniques with hitting, throwing, and catching and more rules of the game.  There will be NO COACH PITCH for the FIRST HALF of the season; the hitting tee is a tool used to develop players and will be utilized as such for half the season.  The coaches are free to assist the players with batting stance, etc. and anticipated “plays” (where to go with the ball if it is hit to you…).  With this format in place, every child will get a hit; the pace of the game speeds up, which keeps the players more engaged (rather than picking daisies and playing in the dirt).  There will be a player positioned at the pitchers mound to signal for a pitch prior to the batter hitting the ball off the tee.  All players bat, 10 players field.  Entire team hits constitutes ½ an inning. Maximum players per team: 10; 2 coaches.
