Quickball or Tee-ball?  Here's what our parents and coaches had to say...
"Quickball all the way. My son played t-ball last year, and I've coached many t-ball teams and prefer QB. The fast pace really kept the kids engaged."

"We LOVED the improvement to T-ball that Quickball provided. AWESOME experience this past season!!! It kept the kids moving and engaged. They all made so much progress in one season."

"We have done both. Quickball is more engaging for kids and parents as well as learning skills. We love it!"

Our 8-9 year olds take a big step from Coach pitch to Kid Pitch on the larger AA field (46/60).  Winter Training and a Pitching Clinic are typically available before the season starts to help players prepare and adjust to the new game format.  Players will continue developing individual skills and learn more rules of the game as it takes on a more "real" baseball feel.  Outs and runs are recorded.  Pitchers will need to pass a test to earn their "Pitching Pin" to ensure quality and safe pitching.  Coaches pitch in the first three games.  Beginning in game 4, coaches pitch the first two innings and kids pitch innings 3 and 4.  Coaches will pitch after ball 4 in all games.
