Our fantastic t-ball program caters to children aged from 3 through to when they’re ready to play baseball at 8. Click here to find out whether your child is eligible for t-ball or baseball. Girls and boys can both play, and are taught all the basics of throwing, hitting and baserunning in a fun, inclusive environment.
Saturday morning t-ball is a joint competition with the local softball association where teams play against each other the same as any other sport. Trainings are held on Thursday evenings throughout the summer season (Terms 4 & 1). We keep the costs low for maximum inclusion and participation, and primary school students also have access to the $100 Sports Voucher from the SA Government.
We rely a lot on parent and older sibling helpers in our t-ball program (guided by our coaches), so it’s a great way to get involved in your child’s team as a family and be part of them having fun.
For kids aged 7 or 8 who will soon be moving into proper baseball, we also give them the opportunity to play PeeWees, which is about 8 games throughout the season on Sunday mornings in the inter-club metropolitan league. PeeWees is baseball with modified rules to help the transition between hitting from a tee to hitting live pitching. The coach pitches to the players and continues their skills development so that when it’s time for them to play baseball, they’re ready to go!
We often have winter programs running during school terms for those kids who just want to keep going all year! It is also a great way for new players to come and learn skills ready to hit the ground running in the summer season. Our next winter t-ball program is due to begin in Term 2 on Friday 3rd May.
