ABOUT THIS DIVISION

Blastball is for kids who are baseball age 3 - 4 (pre-kindergarten) who were born between September 1, 2017 – August 31, 2019. 

Blastball provides an introduction to baseball and team sports. Baseball skills are introduced, kids will be introduced to throwing, catching, hitting off a tee, and running. The primary focus is on fun, being part of a team, physical activity, and building confidence. 

There are 6-8 players per team. Players are permitted to request one to three friends.  The Division Coordinator will do their best to accommodate the request but are not guaranteed.  Friend requests are made at the time of registration.

COST - $90/player

PLAYER COMMITMENT

One practice / game per week (1 hours total time) on Saturday mornings.  Game start times will vary.  Games typically last 30-45 minutes and are followed by a parent-provided snack, subject to COVID protocols.

PARENT COMMITMENT

Each team relies on parent volunteer coaches and team manager.  Blastball is NOT a drop-off activity. An adult must stay at the park for the duration of each session. COVID-19 protocols will be communicated prior to start of season. 

PRACTICE / GAME STRUCTURE

The first 20 minutes is comprised on team “drills” focused on fun, simple and active simple throwing, running and hitting using a foamy bat and ball.

Subject to COVID-19 protocols, second half of each session is scrimmage play with the other Blastball Team on the field at that time.  Jericho will advise when this permitted. 

The game involves 1 tee and 1 base set-up.  Each player gets an opportunity to hit the ball each inning and run to the base.  The fielding team sets up a line and 1 kid per batter is designated to retrieve the ball and throw to a parent coach.

No score or standings are kept.
