PRBSA offers baseball and softball programs for boys 4-18 and girls 4-18. Our leagues are structured for the beginner, the recreational player, and competitive player, with an emphasis on teaching and having fun.
The PRBSA T-Ball (Ages 4 & 5) League has been developed to teach the fundamentals of the game of baseball and to get the players to start learning the basics such as fielding, throwing, hitting and baserunning. A safety ball is used in this league in order to allow our young athlete’s to learn the game of baseball in a safe environment.
Practice sessions typically begin the first week of April with two scheduled practices each week. Our practices will focus on utilizing small group stations to work on the fundamentals of batting (stance & swing basics), throwing (power T, rotation to release of ball), ground ball station (basic fielding position, 2 hands to cradle), baserunning (when to run through 1B, when to round), catching (starting with the coach throwing to the players and building to players catching with each other), and mental/rules (1 core principal each practice- order of the bases, force out vs. tag, flyball outs, etc.) Our goal is to keep the stations focused, short, and to keep our players moving.
Games typically start in late April or early March with two practice/games scheduled each week. During this portion of the season we will start a split practice/game format with a 30-45 minute practice session followed by a 30-45 minute game session. During the games the fielders will try to get outs but the runners will always stay on base. Baserunning is typically from base to base in this league. The hitters will hit off the Tee initially and will move to coach pitching as their hitting progresses.
For parents interested in volunteering their services, we will be happy to provide tools that help make it fun and engaging for the players. There will be a coach’s clinic prior to the season as well as ongoing support from our VP of Player Development and Training. Coaching is a fun and rewarding experience!
Our T-Ball Program utilizes a developmental approach to teaching the fundamentals of baseball that will keep your young athlete engaged, moving, and having fun while learning a game they will enjoy for years to come.
