Tee Ball - League Age 4/5

What is the game and practice schedule at this level?

Teams begin practices in March and games on Opening Weekend in early April. The season ends in mid- to late May. Teams have practice twice per week, typically one on a weeknight and the other on Saturday or Sunday afternoon during the preseason; the manager determines practice schedule based on field availability. All games are played on Saturday mornings or mid-afternoons; game schedules will be made available in late March or early April.  Games typically last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

When will I hear from a coach?

Teams are formed in February to enable preseason practices. Registrations and coach availability permitting, we aim to place players on smaller teams (usually no more than 8-10 players).

What does a typical game look like?

Tee Ball teams are kept small in order to maximize hitting and fielding opportunities for each player. Players hit a soft, safety ball off of a batting tee and run one base at a time, while fielders learn to field the ball and throw the ball to first base. Every player bats and plays the field in each inning. All players are safe on the bases. As the season progresses, coaches have some freedom to adapt the game to suit their individual players.

What does my player need?

The league provides a team uniform shirt, belt, socks and a hat for each player, as well a tee at each game. Players at this level need their own bat, batting helmet, glove and pants. Players will need to bring their own water, juice, etc. to each game. Cleats are not required.  Visit this link to view bat requirements.

What else is required?

Your participation as a parent. Even if you don’t step up as a head coach, parents must be present at these games. Helping players learn how and where to throw the ball, and which direction to run is a full team effort. More importantly, it really is fun!

Mandatory Volunteer Application must be filled out before an adult can be on field working with players.
