T-BallUpdated Thursday June 25, 2015 by Waxhaw Baseball.
T-Ball provides an introduction to the game of baseball in an encouraging and non-competitive atmosphere. Here is where players learn the basics of the game, make new friends and - of course - have fun.
Divisions / Ages
T-Ball 5U (Ages 4-5)
T-Ball 6U / Coach Pitch Mix (Ages 5-6)
Waxhaw Baseball offers 2 divisions at the t-ball age level.
The introductory level of 5U is a developmental division for those players 4-5 who are new to the game. It is a great experience for our young ones, making new friends and learning about playing as a team. No score is kept at this level.
The 6U level is a Coach Pitch / 'T' mix for 6 year olds, as well as experienced 5 year olds. This is a great transition division to prepare our players to move up to Rookie(7-8) machine pitch. Score is kept at this level.
The split in two divisions will allow us to match skill levels appropriately, avoid injury and develop all of our players for their future baseball experiences.
Practices & Games
Teams have one to two practices per week depending on coach and field availability. If you have any practice time conflicts, please note those in the comment sections during the registration process.
***Special Requests are reviewed & granted(if possible) at this level Only***
Practices are held at either Waxhaw Elementary School or H.C. Nesbit Park (behind Kensington Elementary School).
Teams have a 12 game schedule usually playing 2 games per week.
All games are held on Field #2 at H.C. Nesbit Park behind Kensington Elementary School or the T-ball Field at Waxhaw Elementary.
Game Time Limit: 1 hour and 15 minute
The registration fee covers the cost of the uniform shirt, pants, hat, & socks, as well as an end of season trophy.
Each child will also need a baseball glove. Cleats are not required but are recommended. Many players have their own helmet and / or baseball bat, but it is not required.
Sporting goods charts recommend a bat that is 24" - 26" for T-Ball age players - with the weight no more than 16 oz.
Keep in mind that professional baseball players are always trying to improve their bat head spead, so being able to swing the bat is very important. The bat weight needs to be something the player can easily manage.
Registration for T-Ball is only $130. The fees cover the cost of league and state registration fees, insurance, equipment, field maintenance, utility costs, uniforms and trophies.
Coaches at this level are volunteers. They willingly give of their time and energy to our young players. In return for their efforts they receive our appreciation, memories made with the children and a group of smiling faces. Please consider becoming a coach.
