Instructional league is for players who are 5 years of age. This league is geared toward building an understanding of the fundamentals of baseball including proper batting, throwing, and fielding techniques. We use a clinic based training structure which offers multiple exposures to techniques while keeping the players engaged.
The division relies on parents to assist both as coaches as well as additional support such as helping keep the players on the bench in order and additional help in the field.
Game jerseys, hats, batting helmets, bats, and a batting tee are provided by the league. Players are welcome to have their own batting helmets, and baseball pants, socks, and belts are optional. Each player must have their own glove and boys are required to wear a protective cup.
Typically each team meets twice a week for either a practice or later in the season a short practice followed by a 2 or 3 inning game.
