T-Ball

T-ball presents the perfect opportunity to learn introductory skills and develop a sense of responsibility and sportsmanship from an early age. Getting involved with any sport at an early age helps with establishing the building blocks that will nurture their character. Our coaches are trained to develop and nurture these early skills to push them on to a further successful experience.

Rookie T-ball

The Rookie T-ball program is a 50/50 developmental style league. YMCA Rookies is designed for the beginner who wants to experience youth sports once a week. Leagues are structured to allow for both practice and game experiences in the same day. Participants will learn new skills for 25-30-minutes and put those skills to the test during a short, 30-minute game after the practice.

Rookie Plus T-ball

Rookie Plus T-ball focuses on skill development, fun and a sense of team in a semi-competitive environment, with volunteer coaches. Scores and standings will be kept. Our rules have been adjusted to ensure better parity and limit the ability of a team to “run up the score”. All rookie plus divisions will practice 1-hour per week and a game on Saturday. If needed, make-up games or tournament games may be played on Fridays.
Grades: 1st - 2nd Grade (ages 6-8)
