This is an instructional league designed to teach the fundamentals of the game. All players will hit off of a tee. No score will be kept. This level will use a T-ball for the game ball.
All practices/games will be played on Mondays and Wednesdays in the months of May and June. Teams will be shared in April. Complete schedule will be made available after mid-April.
Teams at this level will be supplied with a Tee (for hitting), balls, batting helmets, and two or three bats.
Players should dress comfortably to run and slide (softball pants or joggers). Players may wear tennis shoes or cleats. Each player will need their own glove. It is optional for a player to bring their own helmet and bat.
