The Small Ball program uses innovative teaching methods to teach baseball basics and fundamentals in a way that is fun. In other words, we help kids learn to love playing baseball by helping them improve their hitting, throwing, and fielding skills at their own pace.

 

This year, we will offer instruction to the following age groups:

 

  • Ages 4-5 (For players who have no experience or have played one year of T-ball)
  • Ages 5-6 (For players who have played T-ball or coach pitch. Beginners also welcomed)
  • Ages 6-7 (For players who have played two years, usually one year of T-ball and one year of coach pitch)

This year, we are also offering a weekly friendly kickball game for all players who are registered for baseball instruction. The kickball game will take place on Sundays.

 

Registration is open to all residents of Westchester County. Click here to register on the Town of Mt. Pleasant website!
