The 8U Division is for 7 and 8 year old's. (Birth Years: 2014, 2015) There will be a combination of practices/drills and games at this level. Practices will focus on developing the foundational skills of catching, throwing and hitting. Players will also begin to learn some of the rules of baseball and how a game is played. During games, the instructor or coach still acts as a pitcher using a cushioned ball and the concept of three outs per inning is introduced.
A baseball hat and jersey are provided. Players should bring their own glove and batting helmet. Baseball pants and cleats are recommended but not required. There is a variety of bats available for general use. A water bottle should also be brought each day. It is a good idea to have your child's equipment and water bottle clearly marked with their name.
