T-Ball, Baseball and Softball Leagues

Softballcatcherphoto

Our summer youth t-ball, baseball and softball program introduces and develops age appropriate skills and game play strategies that lead to steady improvement, and a lifelong enjoyment of the game.  Children will be taught proper technique, will be given the time to practice, master and build upon learned skills, and be given plenty of opportunity to showcase their newly developed skills in scheduled league games that are centered on positive encouragement, inclusion and sportsmanship.  All registered children will participate in weekly practices and a 7 game season.  Children will receive a team t-shirt, team cap, and most equipment is provided (bats, helmets, etc).  Just bring your glove, and let's play!
