1. We highly recommend that parents take the time away from the park to play/practice the game with their child. This is a very simple and forgotten aspect of the child’s baseball development. Basic baseball skills to practice at home could be:
- Pitching/throwing the ball
For further information of these techniques, see coaching staff and/or league organizers for teaching aids. Another easy to use tool and for these baseball skills is www.youtube.com .
We also strongly recommend that all Tee Ball players wear pants, not shorts, to their games and practices for their safety. This will avoid cuts and scrapes when the players slide or fall on the field.
2. THE LEAGUE HAS NOW MADE IT MANDITORY THAT PLAYERS BRING THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL BATTING HELMET FOR HEALTH PURPOSES.
3. Baseball cleats are not mandatory but can be helpful while playing in wet conditions.
4. We recommend that players bring their own water to avoid having them leave the dugout during the game.
5. All game cancellations (rain, lighting, field conditions) will be posted on the website prior to the game. NOTE: we try to hold off on cancellations as long as possible. Games will be cancelled at the last minute. If you are doubtful, check the website before leaving for the game.
8. The scoreboard is fun for the kids. The only way the scoreboard will be used is if parents volunteer their time to run it. If you are interested to learn how to run the scoreboard, please advise us and we will give you the guidelines necessary.
9. The parent’s roles are to encourage the players, to be positive and to have fun. Please do not coach from the sidelines. If you are interested in coaching, please join a staff and pass on your expertise to all the kids.
10. The coaches are responsible to assign the players their positions. The choices they make are to be respected and please note that these choices are made to protect the player’s safety.
