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.
We try to honor team mate requests. Please enter two names at the time of your child's registration. The coaches draft the teams.
Registration fee: $110
If you would like to volunteer to coach a team, please enter information requested in your child's registration. We will contact you via email to let know if you will be coaching a team on March 1st. For each division we are looking for 2 to 3 co-coaches for each team. We require all coaches to attend a mandatory coaches meeting.
We require the 3 background checks which are listed under "Coaches Information" on the left side of home page.
