  • Players will need to bring their own glove and wear sneakers or cleats. Helmets are required to be worn when batting. Helmets will be available for shared use at the fields. Helmet rentals are no longer available. Participants should bring their own helmet if they do not wish to share.
  • Players will learn fundamental skills of baseball/softball such as batting, catching, throwing, running bases and fielding for growth in both experience and confidence. Players are coached by volunteer parents who are trained by Northampton Parks & Recreation and the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS).
  • Players can expect to hit from a tee throughout the season. However, 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 for this program is on children receiving skill development through positive instruction, equal participation, teamwork and fun!mpty heading

Each year, some of our Lil' Sluggers T-Ball Baseball participants, coaches and parents will take part in the annual Florence Memorial Day Parade. This parade is organized by the Northampton Veterans' Services to honor those who died in military service to the United States during peace and war. The parade runs through the center of Florence and ends on Park Street. All participants, coaches and parents are welcome to walk in the parade with us this season. 

  • Players & coaches should wear their team t-shirt and hats.
  • Players must be accompanied by an adult during the parade. The route typically takes 30-45 minutes to complete.
  • Strollers and wagons are allowed if needed to walk the parade route.
