Children learn the basics of baseball including how to throw, catch, hit, and the positions of America’s favorite pastime; all while having fun in a safe environment. T-ball takes place on Saturdays spread over 5 weeks in April and May at Mills Pond Park. Participants get a cool team t-shirt to keep! Parent volunteer coaches are needed, if you are interested in volunteering please call 860-693-5808 or email Kellie Faust, recreation supervisor at email@example.com.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 3/20/23 (or earlier if registration fills)
Participants must be at least 4 years old by the start date of the program.
If registration is full, parents/guardians are encouraged to register on the waitlist. The waitlist does not guarantee a spot on a team. If a spot opens up or if there is enough interest for another team to be made, you will be contacted.
Team requests will be taken up until the regular registration deadline. Requests will be taken into consideration, but are not guaranteed.
Equipment: All players are advised to have their own gloves and sneakers/cleats. Cleats are great if you have them, but not necessary. Comfortable play/gym clothes are recommended. Canton Parks & Recreation has some bats and helmets available to share among the teams, but participants are welcomed to bring their own.
If you are purchasing your own bat, any tee ball bat will be fine - The majority of Tee Ball players should use a 25" or 26" bat. The weight of the bat starts as low as 13 oz and will be as heavy as 18 oz. The majority should use a bat that is 15 or 16 oz.
Schedule: Each Saturday players will meet with their team for a practice (about 1/2 the session) followed by a game.
Volunteer coaches needed! Please email Kellie Faust, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
