BIG SLUGGERS (AGE 7) 

(Kids Age 7 as of August 31 of current Spring Year)

Day: Thursday at 5:30pm & Sunday at 3pm

Uniform: Uniforms will be provided 

At this level, it is our goal to provide each player with a fun and positive experience on the baseball field.  For many players, this may be their first time on an organized team or playing baseball altogether, and we will strive to make this first experience a memorable one!  We want to teach the players how to play the game the correct way, help foster a passion for the game so that they want to play for a long time, and certainly promote new friendships by showing them how we cheer on our teammates while demonstrating great sportsmanship to our opponents.

How will we do this?  The Instructional Program will be led by volunteer parents who will be given support with weekly practice plans that place an emphasis on having fun and introducing players to the game of baseball and softball.  Our primary objective is that we want players to look forward to coming to the field each and every week.

In a very fun and fast-paced way, we will look to get players a lot of reps in all of the necessary skills, such as hitting, throwing and catching!  While playing "real games" will be part of a player's development during the program, it will be secondary to developing the skills and the confidence needed to achieve game success.

In order to achieve these goals and to make the experience a positive one, we need your help and assistance! Please contact our Instructional League commissioners with any questions, or if you are able to assist during the Tuesday/Thursday spring sessions.

We measure the success of the Instructional Program not by how far your player can throw or hit the ball-- but by whether he or she wants to play the following year!

Our season typically begins the week after April vacation and runs through the last full week of school in June.  

The Program Fee is $210
