4 - 5 year olds (Preschool age)
The Blastball program is designed for Preschoolers who are playing a team sport for the first time. This is a fun program that focuses on skill development and an introduction to the basic concepts of baseball. Skills developed include: Throwing, Catching, Hitting of a tee, Running and Teamwork.
The 2020 Season will follow the popular “Intro to Baseball” format introduced last year with fixed schedule. After basic skills are developed, there will be an introduction to games. Coaches are provided weekly lesson plans and league supported coach assistance throughout the season. Weekly sessions are all teams together with rotating skill building stations.
There are 6-9 players per team and each player gets an opportunity to hit the ball every session. All participants receive a t-shirt to keep. Friend requests are permitted, and we do our best to accommodate at least one friend request per player.
Season starts week of April 6, 2020 and ends June 13, 2020.
Blastball will be played once per week on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-6:45 pm.
Blastball is NOT a drop-off activity. An adult must stay at the park for the duration of each session.
Blastball Field Location
All sessions will be held at Maple Grove Park (6800 Balsam Street).
