For kids between the ages of 4 and 5 (born in 2015 and 2016), the T-Ball program aims to teach the fundamentals of the game of baseball. We will introduce the kids with the proper way to grip, throw and catch a ball, followed with base running and hitting. The sessions will consist of two 1 hour sessions. Our head instructors have all received all the proper training to make the T-Ball program successful and fun! Please sign up to coach for this season here.
For kids between the ages of 6 and 7 (Born in 2013 and 2014), the Pitching Machine program is a continuation of the T-Ball program but with the addition of an actual pitching machine throwing the ball to the hitter. Played on both fields at Kirkland park and very similar to the Atom B program, games are played with first year kids playing together on one field (Kirkland T) while the second year players will play together on the Kirkland Main field. Parents get involve in coaching and encouraging all the kids from every team. Based on the number of teams, usually two sessions held on weeknights. Lakeshore Baseball is happy to provide coaching clinic to parent volunteers. Please sign up to coach for this season here
For kids between the ages of 8 and 9 (Born in 2011 and 2012), The Atom B program ensure that all players get equal time hitting and fielding. Because of a 6 on 6 format, everyone is involved playing defence and everyone gets to hit during every inning. Using a pitching machine ensures a good pitch to hit almost every time. Parents get involve in coaching and encouraging all the kids from every team. Based on the number of teams, usually two games are played on weeknights from 18h30 to 20h00, with a practice on the weekends. Lakeshore Baseball is happy to provide coaching clinics to parent volunteers. Please sign up to coach for this season here.
