T-Ball is a great way to begin to develop the fundamental skills required to be a baseball player. The league is co-ed and while it is intended for children between 5-7 years old, we will allow a 4-year-old to play if you feel your child would do well enough playing with children older than them. Teams have one practice per week on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings from either 5:00 - 6:15 pm or 6:15 - 7:30 pm and a game on Saturday. The game times will either be at 9:00 am, 10:15 am or 11:30 am. Practices and games will take place at Colonial. There are no evaluations for this league.
Players will need a glove, sneakers (cleats are optional), and sports pants preferably without pockets. Jerseys, hats, balls, bats, and helmets will be provided. The registration fee is $50.
As you would expect, the success of our T-Ball league is greatly dependent on having parents and others volunteer to help. Please consider being involved as either an Assistant Coach or Head Coach.
Colonial T-Ball leagues are designed to teach and develop a young player's skills while incorporating a positive Christian influence. The league also provides a great opportunity for outreach. You are encouraged to invite your friends and co-workers who do not attend a local church to register their children for the league.
As our Sports Ministry has grown to the extent that we now have more than 3000 participants annually, the number of "same team player requests" and "specific coach requests" has reached the point that we are no longer able to accommodate all the requests due to time constraints along with our desire to attempt to create "equally skilled" teams. However, if you invite a child to participate in the league and they have never played in any Colonial Sports Ministries league before, we will place them on the same team as your child. If siblings are participating in the same league, then we will be able to place them on the same team. Otherwise, there is no guarantee that siblings will be practicing on the same night of the week.
