TEE-BALL

Tee Ball (Baseball) Instructional Division

Tee Ball baseball is for boys and girls as young as league age 4 who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Tee Ball, each scheduled game will consist of a joint 30 minute practice (operated by the coaches) followed by an approximate 45 minute game. During the practice the participants will be utilizing a tee in order to achieve repetition swinging the bat however coaches may pitch to the batters during the game (Note: A tee may also be utilized during the game). The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork.

Coaching a Tee Ball team requires patience and the ability to have a lot of fun watching kids do a lot of their firsts in baseball. Our league follows the Little League 12 week training program.
