6U Rec/House Division - Ages 5 or 6 on or before 12/31/14 [born in 2008 or 2009]
 

 

Expectations:

The 6u division offers an introduction to the game of softball. A soft baseball is used for play, and players hit off a stationary batting tee at the beginning of the season. Coach pitch will be introduced as the season progresses. Basic fundamentals are taught with an emphasis on instruction over competition. Tee ball meets only on weekends, either Saturday or Sunday. The first half of each session is practice and the second half is the "game." Teams are primarily formed by school attended to allow the players to see familiar faces, or to meet future classmates.
