Early Pre-K classes cover a fun and basic introduction to the game. Spacial orientation games help give our youngest players basic tools to utilize their surroundings. Focal points of classes include what bases are, how to be safe, and how to get outs. The complex defensive concepts of outs and how to create outs are gently introduced with simple and fun games; basic base running concepts and fly balls are covered.
Pre-K and Kindergarten classes cover many aspects of the game. We begin with an introduction to field space and base running to give our youngest players a sense of their surroundings; where they are, what the field is, and how bases are utilized. Hitting position, bat placement, and body movements in the swing are taught and reviewed weekly. Fielding and throwing mechanics are incorporated.
1st and 2nd grade classes begin with a review of field space and base running. Hitting position, body movements, fielding, and throwing mechanics are covered. Classes advance to relay work, infield and outfield strategy, intermediate base running concepts, and intermediate levels of creating outs based on ability. Pitching and catching are introduced.
3rd and 4th grade classes cover intermediate and advanced field space concepts and base running review. Classes advance to defensive positional planning, intermediate and advanced levels of creating outs, and the mental approach to hitting. Beginning and intermediate levels of pitching and catching are covered. Players hit coach pitching and player pitching as appropriate.
