Lil' Sluggers baseball is for player ages 4-6 and serves as an introduction to the games of baseball and softball in a fun and active environment. The Northampton Parks & Recreation Department recognizes that this is often a family’s first experience with baseball.
All up-to-date COVID regulations will be followed during the program. Regulations are TBA at this time.
For: Ages 4, 5 and 6 (must be 4 as of August 31,2022) Dates: Saturdays, April 30 - June 18 (make up June 25 if needed) - 7 sessions - no program May 29 Time: 9:00 - 10:15 AM or 10:30 - 11:45 AM (may vary each week) Location: R. K. Finn Ryan Road Elementary School Fields Fee: $50.00 (non-residents add $10.00) - Fee includes a team t-shirt & baseball hat!
Players will need their own glove and helmet. Helmet rentals are available through the Rec Department. More information available in April.
Players will learn fundamental 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 positive instruction, equal participation, ample teamwork and, most importantly, having fun!
Registration is now closed for the 2022 season.
