WE ALWAYS NEED COACHES - PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING (email commissioner if interested)
Background: Coach Pitch Baseball is intended to introduce 7- and 8-year-old boys and girls to baseball (age as of 8/31/2022). This secondary level of instruction is geared towards enhancing the basic fundamental skills of fielding, hitting and sportsmanship. This league is appropriate for players 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. Because coaches are pitching and these players are still in the very early stages of developing as baseball players, game scores and team records are not maintained.
Evaluations: We will not be holding 8U evaluations this spring.
Practices & Games: Practices will begin in mid-March and games will begin in early-April. Until games start, teams will practice on one or two weeknights and on Saturday. Once games start, teams will typically have one practice and one game on weekdays and one game on Saturday. Teams will practice/play Piney Orchard Elementary School, GORC Park to the extent available, and other nearby park facilities if necessary during the GORC park renovation. The season runs through early-June. Coaches are awlays needed at this level – email the commissioner if you are interested in coaching.
Please note schedule is subject to change. Consult your child's coach for the latest schedule and changes.
