WHY:

The current landscape of beginning baseball has not been a productive way to introduce the sport to young kids.  12 to 15 players per team where kids get 1 at bat in an hour doesn't keep kids engaged, is not productive, not is it fun.  Our goal is to create game situations that can be taught on the fly and prepare kids for higher levels in the years to come.  The biggest goal is to get the players engaged and excited about playing, no matter what level they end up playing at.

WHO:

This program is designed for youth/beginner players as an off-season supplement to beginner little league and Tee-ball.  Target ages are 5, 6 and 7 year olds.  Members of the Gannon University baseball team will run the teams with facilitation from Sinai Sports staff.  Players can sign up individually and be assigned to a team after the spring training clinic.  Groups of players can also be brought together to form a team or part of a team.

WHAT:

Players get 1 practice session and 1 game per week.

  • Practices will consist of 60 minute sessionsworking on fundamental skills and proper mechanics.

  • Games will consist of 60 minute sessions:

    • 10 min: warm up / practice with team​

    • 50 min: coach pitch game (may progress to kid pitch by end of season)

5 minutes per 1/2 inning or 3 batted outs whichever comes first

8-9 players per team - LIMITED TO 6 TEAMS (54 PLAYERS TOTAL)

No outfielders - Outfield play is not a priority at this level.  These skills will still be taught in all of the instructional settings, but eliminating the positions, during games, will keep the players engaged, keep at bats coming quickly, and focus more on infield play and proper mechanics.

Positions: 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, P

Catch net and target will be used as strike zone

Fence will be put up 10-20 feet behind infielders
