  TEE-BALL PROGRAM
     **************************************
 

GOAL- The Tee-Ball Division introduces our youngest players (ages 5 and 6) to the fundamentals of softball and allow them to experience the value of teamwork.  Only the most basic rules of the game will be used in this non-competitive atmosphere.  Players will see team play as they learn to bat (both tee and coach-pitch), throw, catch, fielding, and run bases. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching.  Teams are limited to seven to nine team members for instructional purposes.

AGE GROUP– 5 to 6 years old, players that have participated for one regular season in the TeeBall Division are eligible to be selected to a Minor League Division (coach pitch or machine pitch) team.

SCHEDULE–           Spring Training – April, twice per week.
                           
Games – April through June - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
                            Clinics – To be announced 
                            All Star Game – To be announced  
 
LOCATIONS -  Tee-Ball Division games are played primarily at Pragemann Park.
                      Practices may be conducted at various Wallingford town fields. 
 
EQUIPMENT
- The official game ball is the 10” rif softball for the safety of the players. 
 
BATTERS AND RUNNERS (OFFENSE)
- The batting order includes all players present and ready to play.  
- All players throughout the season will use a batting tee when needed.  Players will quickly be introduced to coach-pitch batting. 
- A team will remain at bat until each player has had her turn at bat and all play has stopped.
             
DEFENSE (FIELDERS)
- Teams will use all available players on defense. 
- Instruction being the primary objective, we encourage all defensive players to make an attempt to finish the play.  Infielders are directed to throw caught balls to the proper base, outfielders are directed to throw caught balls to the proper cut-off infielder.
 
CLINICS
- Skill and fun type clinics are offered throughout the season by veteran coaches/board members to further improve the player’s skills and enjoyment of the game.
