The goal of this program is to teach basic fundamentals of baseball & softball:
1. Throwing- teaching children how to throw the ball properly. 2. Fielding Ground balls- Using tennis balls, teach proper techniques for fielding ground balls. 3. Catching- Using tennis balls, teach how to catch a ball, without a glove (2 hands). 4. Hitting- Using the T, teach how to hold a bat, batting stance. Hit balls off the T. 5. Running- Teach how to run the bases.
The children will spend 10 minutes at each station, plus 2 water breaks. The first 5 sessions will consist of drills. The final session will be run in a game-like format.
Children will need sneakers, but do not need cleats, bat or a baseball glove to participate.
