So your toddler is ready to get out there and try Tball and you have questions. It's natural. First, thanks for your interest in Lutz Baseball.  Fall Ball is a great time to start since it's a little more relaxed than Spring Ball. 

Tee Ball Baseball is for boys and girls league age 4 & 5 (birthdate between 5/1/2012 and 4/30/2014) who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding.  In Tee Ball, players hit off of a batting tee.  The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork.  No live pitching is permitted in this division.  The teams generally have 9-10 kids each - boys and girls.  You can request to be placed on a team that has practice days and times that accommodates your schedule, we do our best to work with everyone.  The games are all on Saturday, either at 9am or 10:30 am with one day of practice during the week (M-F) at either 5pm or 6:30pm.  Just register on the website and in the comment section make any requests you need - days and times to practice, buddies to be on the same team with, etc).  You will need to supply a bat, helmet and glove.

Also, if you would like to coach it is a lot of fun and makes the season an even better memory for your whole family.  The need is huge at this age since it's more like herding cats than coaching when they are this young.  No experience needed!  You can just register online too as a coach and follow the instructions.  It's free to register.  There are a couple of online courses to take as a coach, but they are pretty informative and can be completed in about 2 hours total.  Every coach also goes through a background check for the safety of the kids, but the whole thing is a pretty painless process.  We look forward to seeing you and your family this season!

The fee for Fall season is $145.
