Tee-Ball is a modified version of baseball for boys and girls. The game is all about being active and having FUN. The batting team hits the ball of a stationary tee and cannot get out on strikes. A modified ball is used that is softer and slightly smaller than a normal baseball to reduce the risk of injury and build confidence.

This format teaches basic motor skills such as hitting, fielding, catching and throwing, and also introduces the concepts of teamwork, inclusion and fair play. In order to increase participation and skill development team sizes are usually limited to a maximum of 6 to 7 players.

Age (2018/19 Season):

Baseball uses a “baseball age” matrix to determine which age group applies. Players who have a baseball age of  4, 5, 6 or 7 will play Tee-ball (the matrix makes this easy to determine).

Training:

Fridays 5-6pm. Training will commence on Friday 14 September 2018.

Games:

Games are generally played on Saturday mornings at 8:30am for a 1 hour game. (There may be occasional Friday night games).

Matches are played against the other three Clubs in the Metro Region being Pine Hills, Windsor and Allstars. Home games are played at the club’s Preston Road fields. There are no competition points or official scores recorded.

The season usually consists of 9 to 10 Saturdays in School Term 4 with another 6 to 7 Saturdays in Term 1 after school returns from the Christmas break. There are no games or training during school holidays.
