Our overall goal is to make this league a fun and fundamental experience. It is very important for each child to develop friendships and build teamworking skills in a non- competitive league. Before each child finishes the program, our goal is to teach the child to hit a pitched ball. In the 6 & 7 yr old coach pitch league, the coaches will be pitching to the child in the first week of the season.Our goal in batting is to prepare him/her to properly swing a bat and make contact with a baseball either from a tee or by pitch from a coach.To develop accuracy and to prevent injury, we will practice a step and throw technique to ensure your child is stepping and throwing in the direction he/she is intending.Each child will learn the proper technique to safely catch a ball in his/her own glove. Again, the focus of our league is to implement the fundamental skills of baseball, while promoting a fun and friendly environment
All games and practices will be held at Spanish River Ballfields at De Hoernle Park, located at 1000 Spanish River Blvd.. The season consists of nine games and practices. Practices will be once a week beginning at 5:30pm. All games are played Saturday mornings.
Equipment ? The only equipment the City will not supply is a fielding glove. Cleats are optional and we will provide you with a uniform shirt and hat for games. We will have bats, balls, and helmets onsite for use.
