What will my child learn?
Coaches introduce players baseball fundamentals, including proper throwing mechanics, hitting fundamentals, basic fielding skills, base running and the names and locations of field positions.
We emphasize having fun together as a team, learning positive sportsmanship, and developing players' confidence.
How do T-ball games work?
Players bat off a tee. Every batter gets a hit and advances to first base. Innings change after all players on each team bat once. Fielders throw hit balls to first base and rotate field position every inning so everyone has a chance to play all positions. Games run three innings which typically takes an hour. No score is kept. The rules are listed in the "Coaches information" on the NAA home page.
What do players need?
A baseball glove and water bottle. The team shirt and team baseball hat will be distributed at the first game. Players are welcome to bring their own baseball bat and batting helmet.
What about drop-offs?
Each player must have a parent (or responsible adult) present for the duration of the game.
