Tee-Ball is a modified version of baseball, which 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.

Matches are played against the other three Clubs in the Metro Region being Pine Hills, Windsor and Allstars. Home games are generally played at the clubs Preston Rd fields. There are no competition points or official score recorded.

Training will commence early September with the first game likely to be October 7. 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.
