Baseball Division Descriptions

*TEE BALL IS AN INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISION*  The focus of Tee Ball is to introduce and develop basic baseball skills while incorporating the concepts of sportsmanship and teamwork, while most importantly HAVING FUN! Rosters will be ideally kept between 5-10 players with 3 Coaches, which will provide the best opportunity for individual attention.  Tee Ball will meet once per week for an hour-long practice/'game' combination.  The first 20-30 minutes will focus on instructional skills and drills and the last 30-40 minutes on a simulated 'game.  


*SINGLE-A IS AN INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM*  For many of the players in this division, we realize this is their first time being exposed to baseball.  Our main goals are to be sure each player continues to learn the BASICS about baseball, while having FUN doing it.  This is a Coach-Pitch division; Coaches will also be the catcher.  There are no official scores or standings and umpires are not used at this level. Rosters will be ideally kept between 6-10 players with 3 Coaches, which will provide the best opportunity for individual attentionEvery player will have an at-bat each inning, and players will be rotated in the field to expose them to the different fielding positions.  Games are 1 hour long, which usually allows us to get each team three at bats.  We will focus on INSTRUCTION in the following areas:  hitting, throwing, catching, running the bases, basic rules of the game and being good sports! Single-A  will meet TWICE per week (historically Thursday evenings and Saturday late mornings) for an hour-long practice/'game'.  We work in conjunction with Town Soccer as to avoid scheduling conflicts at this level.  The first 20-30 minutes will focus on instructional skills and drills and the last 30-40 minutes on a simulated 'game'.  


* Note for 2nd GRADE GIRLS :  By registering for Single-A baseball, your daughter will also have access to a FREE instructional SOFTBALL program which will meet once a week to focus on skills & drills specific to softball.  This will prepare them for entering the MYBSA Farm Softball Division next season, if they so choose.
