HLLA Tee Ball Division

The Tee Ball division is intended for those players under league age 6 born before 8/31/2017 (consult the official little league age chart for more details). In practice, HLLA places some players who are league age 8 into our Minor League division if there are circumstances which make this the right choice. The decision on where to place a player is solely at the discretion of the HLLA board in consultation with the parents, coaches, and league coordinators.

Tee ball is intended to be a fun introduction to the sport of baseball or softball for young children. No score is kept in tee ball games and coaches will frequently go onto the field to show players what to do during the game. Players swing at a soft "safety" baseball that is placed on the tee for them by the coaches. There are no official umpires for most tee ball games since there are no ball/strike calls. Instead, the coaches make the out/safe calls for players on the base paths always keeping in mind that a strict application of baseball rules is less important than using every opportunity to teach.

HLLA typically fields many teams in the tee ball division. These teams practice twice per week for the first two weeks.  Games will then start and we will play about 2 games per week for 6 weeks which is about the 2nd week of June.  All games and practices are at Purcell Park.

Registration for tee ball will be held at the same time as all other HLLA registrations which is the 1st 3 Saturdays in February from 10 am to 1 pm in the Cecil F. Gilkerson Activities Center at 305 Dogwood Dr.   The cost of registration for this division is $65 which covers the cost of the uniform, hats and other league costs such as insurance and etc. 

There will be an orientation meeting for tee ball players and their parents/guardians on Saturday, March 4 at Waterman Elementary. We split the orientation into four groups based on the first letter of your last name:
  • 9:00 AM - Last names between A-C
  • 9:30 AM - Last names between D-Hi
  • 10:00 AM - Last names between Hj-M
  • 10:30 PM - Last names between N-Z

After your child is paced on a team, you will be contacted by your coach about when practices will start..
