Players will learn foundational skills of baseball/softball such as batting, catching, throwing and fielding for gains in both experience and confidence. Players are coached by volunteer parents who are trained by Northampton Parks & Recreation.
Players can expect to hit from a Tee throughout the season, but as the season progresses, coaches are given the option to introduce coach pitch to players who are ready to hit in this fashion.
The emphasis is on children receiving skill development thru a positive instruction, equal participation and the value of teamwork and most importantly having fun.
All players/teams participate each Saturday morning for a seven week season beginning the last Saturday of April at Look Park.
The registration deadline is April 7, or until full. Early registration discount by March 31
