Desired Outcome/Goals

  • Players will learn beginning fundamentals of baseball/softball. For the first half of the season, all of the teams will come for an hour to practice baseball drills (throwing, catching, hitting, base running, etc.). The players will break up into stations and rotate to different planned activities. We will need parents to help run these stations! For the second half of the season, the teams will play games against each other.
  • This fundamental baseball league will build on experience and knowledge of the game learned in Incrediball, but is also a great starting point for anyone. Players will strengthen their knowledge and fundamentals of baseball. In addition to fundamentals, players will learn the rules of the game, as 3 outs are introduced. Player pitch will also be used later in the season, along with catchers in full gear.  Each team will have two practices and five games. 
  • This fundamental softball league will build on experience and knowledge of the game learned in Incrediball, but is also a great starting point for anyone. In addition to fundamentals, players will learn the rules of the game, as 3 outs are introduced to switch from fielding to batting. We will also introduce player pitching at this level for older ages. Each team will have two practices and five games.
