What is T-Ball all about?

  • It is a game allowing the younger players a chance to experience the great game for the first time.  The kids are introduced and taught the basics in a very safe and fun environment.  There is no pitching in a T-Ball game, the catcher places the ball on a Tee at home plate for the batter to hit.  It’s a great introduction to the sport of baseball.
  • Each game is typically split into two parts, where half of each team practices skills while half plays a game with the other team.  After about 30 minutes, the groups switch.

 

What is the cost of T-Ball?

  • The cost is $185.

 

When does the season start?

  • The season starts at the end of April and runs through to the end of June (typically 8-9 weeks).

 

How often do they play?

  • T-Ball will play 2 days per week.
  • Each registrant will be offered the option of playing Mondays/Wednesdays or Tuesdays/Thursdays (subject to availability).

I registered in February and I haven’t heard anything yet – what’s happening?

  • Once the registration information is collected and entered in the database, reports for each division are prepared for the various division coordinators.
  • The number of teams is then determined and managers and/or coaches are assigned to each team, then players are assigned or drafted to the teams.
  • There is a coaches meeting (to review rules, events, etc) with the division coordinator.
  • The managers and coaches for each team receive the team roster and are then in a position to start contacting parents.
  • Often, the managers and coaches will organize a parent meeting before the season starts. Practices can then commence.
  • If you have any questions about this process, please contact the applicable division coordinator.

 

I want to coach or volunteer, how do I go about doing this?

  • Please indicate on your child’s registration that you would like to coach or volunteer.  You can also email your interest to the Safety Officer at:  safety_officer@fcll.ca.
