"We are really impressed with the quality of instruction and fun you are giving the boys!" - T-Ball Parent

This class is designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 6. Learn the basics of baseball through creative games and activities. The T-Ball curriculum teaches basic baseball skills including throwing, catching, fielding and hitting, and baserunning. Baserunning teaches spatial awareness as it relates to the field of play. The skills are taught through interactive structured games that give each child the opportunity to progress at their own level. Hand-eye coordination is also a major focus of the class. The basics of teamwork and socialization are also reviewed. All players should bring a baseball glove to each class.
