Start Smart T-Ball for ages 3 and 4
START SMART T-BALL is a developmentally appropriate introductory baseball program for children 3 and 4 years old. The program prepares children for organized t-ball, baseball and softball in a fun non-threatening environment without the worry of competition or the fear of getting hurt. It is a parent/guardian participation program. Every child must have a partner. Siblings over 13 may also help. Because this is a partnership program, teammate requests are not taken for this division. Age appropriate equipment is used in teaching throwing, catching, batting, running and agility. It is a clinic/instruction based program with light game play as the season progresses.
Schedule info: Each Start Smart session will be maxed at 16 participants and will follow the same instruction. Each group will meet once a week on Saturday mornings at Memorial Fields near Burns School for 45 minutes. Register for the session that works best for your schedule – session options are at either 9AM, 10AM, or 11AM. Season dates are April 30th-June 11th.
UPDATE April 1, 2022: Additional session added for 8AM time. All other divisions are full.
Start Smart T-Ball registration fee: $40.00 Residents & $45.00 for Non-Residents
T-Ball Divisions for ages 5 and 6
SPR is offering two T-Ball divisions this year, based on ability.
Option 1: Beginner T-Ball: This is a great instructional program for the first time T-Ball player, focusing on the fundamentals of hitting, catching and throwing. Players will use the tee throughout the duration of the season for hitting. The Beginner T-Ball program practices on Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30pm and plays games on Saturdays in the afternoon. Season dates are April 26th-June 11th.
Option 2: Intermediate T-Ball: In this division, players will continue to work on the fundamentals offered in Beginner T-Ball. It is recommended players have at least one year experience in a T-Ball program prior. The biggest difference for Intermediate is that players will begin the season hitting off the tee, and move to Coach Pitch by the end of the season. The Intermediate T-Ball program practices on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30pm and plays games on Saturdays in the afternoon. Season dates are April 27th-June 11th.
T-Ball Division registration fee: $50.00 for Residents & $55.00 for Non-Residents
Participants should have their own catching gloves. We will provide all other necessary equipment. All shared equipment provided by SPR will be sanitized between practices. For those that would prefer to provide their own helmets and bats, families are responsible for monitoring use of personal equipment during practice if they are not intended to be shared.
