Tee Ball Division

Posted by Sandy Harrington at Feb 24, 2015 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
In 2013, Little League® created a new program for Tee Ball players (ages 4-6) that is specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to baseball and softball that is grounded in fun, fitness and fundamentals.

The Little League® Tee Ball program is a 10-week plan that features structured learning highlighted by one practice and one game per week. Over the course of the season, coaches and parents will engage in a series of lessons utilizing up to 40 activities that include skills, drills and plenty of physical activity.

A great resource for a first-time or veteran coach, Little League’s Tee Ball program includes:

  • Detailed practice plans for each week of the 10-week program
  • Quick practice plans for each week of the 10-week program
  • Activity Guides explaining each drill and activity in detail
  • Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Tips for each week of the program
  • SKLZ FUN-damentals videos focusing on teaching basic Tee Ball skills

To access the Little League® Tee Ball program and other great Tee Ball Resources, visit the links below:


 

At the Little League® International Congress in April 2014, District Administrators and other delegates from local Little Leagues around the world voted to change the Age Determination Date for all levels of Little League Baseball to December 31 starting with the 2018 season. After receiving requests from local leagues and districts to provide a better transition for younger players, Little League worked with its volunteers, the Little League Advisory Board, and the Little League International Board of Directors Operations Committee to create a transition plan for players turning ages 4 to 9 during calendar year 2015, having the new, December 31, age determination date go into effect immediately.

To read the most recent statement from Little League on the New Age Determination Date, click here.

For all information on the New Age Determination Date, click here.


As the new season rolls in and leagues are updating websites with new information, it's important to make sure websites follow Little League policies.  These policies are put in place to help League administrators protect Little League players.  In addition to following the policy regarding images on websites, it is also important to remember to be diligent on the website as well as at the ball field to ensure player information/identity is protected.

League officials should remind team parents that first and last name combinations should never be used; for example, teams should never have first and last name on player uniforms (first name/number on hat, last name/number on jersey).  Team banners should not use first names or pictures of the players in a way that would allow someone to identify a player by his/her first and last name.  Children are much more apt to stop to listen to or follow a stranger who calls them by their first name.  Let's not make it easier for predators to get close to the players!

The following policy is in regard to the use of images of Little League Baseball or Softball player (from any division) on internet web sites.  It is important to know, however, that local, state, provincial or national laws take precendence over this policy if there is a conflict.

Photographs and/or video of any children must not be posted on a Chartered local Little League's web site without receiving written permission from the child's parent or guardian.  Photos on a web site owned or operated by a chartered local Little League must adhere to the standards for Little Leaguers appearing in the media at: Media Appearance. 

It is Little League policy that the addresses or other contact information for children in the local league must never be placed on any internet web site.

If a local Little League web site operator wishes to post the names of players, as on a roster, this is permitted provided the parent or guardian of the player(s) named have agreed to it in writing.  This applies to any posting on the website - even lists such as "Over the Fence Club," "Perfect Game, or any other type of player achievement list. 

Violation of the policies in this document may result in action by the Charter Committee in Williamsport, including, but not limited to, suspension or revocation of the local Little League's charter.
