Coach Pitch (Spring 20)

Background: Coach Pitch Baseball is intended to introduce 7 and 8-year-old boys and girls to baseball. This secondary level of instruction is geared towards enhancing the basic fundamental skills of fielding, hitting and sportsmanship. This league is appropriate for boys who have had one or two years of Tee Ball as well as those entirely new to the sport. In an effort to develop hitting and fielding technique and speed game play, coaches will pitch to their own players throughout the course of the games. All teams play one another in this local GORC league. An end of year two-day tournament will be held to determine the league champion. In addition, we have fielded an “All Star” tournament team the last several years to allow selected players to compete against other local organizations in a tournament setting after the season schedule has been played.

Evaluations: An evaluation is held to help place the players on fair/equal teams. All players should attend evaluations scheduled for 7 March, 2020 at Arundel Middle School.  Your coach should contact you by mid-March with practice times and locations. Please see the schedule below for evaluation times based on the first letter of your child's last name.

Practices & Games: Practices will occur 2-3 per week until games start in mid-April. Once games start, teams will typically have one practice and one game on weekdays and one game on Saturday. Teams will practice/play at GORC Park and Piney Orchard Elementary School. The season runs roughly mid-March through mid-June but allows for makeups due to rain and the scheduling of team parties. Coaches are typically needed at this level – email the commissioner if you are interested in coaching.

The 2020 Annual GORC Spring Sports Parade will be Saturday, April 25th.  Players are asked to line up from 8:30-8:45am with the parade starting at 9:00.  For more information, click here.
