General Information

5-6 Age Group (Clinic for Ages 4¾ through 6)

This division is for children who are 5 to 6 years old.  Children must be 5 years of age by July 31 and must not turn 7 years old before April 30.

The 5-6 Age Group plays on Friday evenings in a series of stations that begins to teach the players the fundamentals of baseball. As the season progresses and the players learn the basic skills, more advanced stations are added, and by the end of the season, teams are playing mini-games against one another to reinforce the skills they have worked on all season.

Regular season practices for 5-6 Baseball will begin on Friday April 10 at 6pm.  Please arrive by 5:45.  We will not be playing on Friday April 17, as that is the set-up day for Opening Day, April 18.  After Opening Day, we will be playing/practicing every Friday at 6pm with a 5:45 arrival time except for Friday June 12.  We will play on Saturday June 13 at 10am instead of June 12.

5-6 Baseball will conclude with games on Saturday June 13 at 10am followed by a pizza party and trophy distribution at 11:30 at the pavilion.

This age group is recommended for children just being introduced to the game. A T-shirt and hat is provided.   Baseball pants, sneakers or plastic/rubber spikes should be worn.   Shorts can be worn when it's hot.

All players need a baseball glove that fits properly and is soft enough for the player to squeeze shut.  (There are a lot of glove-softening products.  (We recommend Hot Glove treatment.)

Players also may want to bring a water bottle when it's hot. Everything else is provided, but they are welcome to bring their favorite bat, batting gloves, helmet, etc. Please make sure your child’s name on on everything he owns. We always collect a lot of gloves after each practice with no names on them!

MOST IMPORTANT:  5-6 Baseball is a learning experience for players, coaches AND PARENTS!  PLEASE, PLEASE come to 5-6 Baseball on time and be prepared to be on the field for an hour and a half with your child helping him with skills that the coaches are teaching.  He wants you there, he needs you there.  Set aside 90 minutes each Friday evening for your child so that he has fun learning the fundamentals of baseball.   One team manager cannot teach baseball to ten 5 year-olds.  In order to keep your son safe and engaged, he needs you on the field with him.
