GROW WITH US!
3 – 4 Years
The Minors curriculum is designed to have the children continue their baseball experience in a fun environment that also reinforces the fundamentals of the game. Children will learn simple base running, the proper stance and swing for hitting, how to point, step and throw, and how to field with two hands. They will also learn simple game situations and continue to develop hand/eye coordination, agility and social skills such as teamwork.
4 – 5 Years
The Majors curriculum expands on the skills learned previously, with slightly more technical instruction and game situations. Children will learn proper base running and sliding techniques, hitting from a pitch, throwing with proper motion for distance and accuracy, how to field with emphasis on staying in front of the ball, catching pop flies and various offensive and defensive game situations.
