Minis t-ball is the perfect introduction to baseball for kids age 3 to 5! It is an instructional and recreational 8-class youth t-ball program designed for preschoolers to have fun while learning rules and skills of the game. Kids practice the fundamentals of t-ball like throwing and catching the ball, batting off the tee, and in most cases, going the right way around the baseball diamond through fun drills and games. The focus in this program is on inclusion, teamwork, sportsmanship and building confidence.
Minis do not play official games or keep score, it is all about fun and learning! All teams are co-ed and led by YMCA staff. This program requires parental involvement to help encourage the most fun and participation. Practices with scrimmages are held once per week. Each player gets a YMCA uniform top to wear on and off the field.
