4-5 Year Olds
The Blastball program is designed for Preschoolers who are playing a team sport for the first time. This is a fun and active program that focuses on skill development and an introduction to the basic concepts of baseball including throwing, catching, hitting off a tee, running and teamwork.
The 2023 Season will follow the popular “Intro to Baseball” lesson format. After basic skills are developed, there will be an introduction to games. Volunteer parent Coaches are provided weekly lesson plans and league supported training throughout the season.
There are 6-9 players per team. Friend requests are permitted and encouraged at this age group, and we do our best to accommodate friend requests.
Every child will receive a Team T-shirt, individualized participation medal, and a professional team photo during the season.
**Players may choose to play T-ball division if they have played Blastball the previous year**
Blastball is NOT a drop-off activity, a parent must stay at the park for the duration of each session. Each parent is required to help out with their child's game on a rotational basis. The duties include bench parent and snack duties for the game sessions, and will be assigned by the team manager at the beginning of the season. In addition, each parent is required to assist with at least 2 hours of league-wide duties during the season, which may include Opening Day, Closing Day, Field Maintenance, Uniforms, Equipment, Board/Committee Roles, or other Special Event support. Your commitment is appreciated and helps make our league run more smoothly.
