Little Sox tee ball & coach pitch expanding in 2016

NewsPosted by admin Mon, February 22, 2016 15:40:48

The Leicester Little Sox programme is back for 2016!

What is Little Sox?

Little Sox is a baseball and softball development programme for boys and girls aged 3-10. Our sessions are split into two age-groups Tee Ball (ages 3-6) and Coach Pitch (ages 7-10).

What happens at the sessions?

We will teach your child how to:

*Hit the ball off ‘tee’ or a ‘coaches pitch’

*Run the bases

*Catching and throwing

*Gain an understanding of the basic rules

*Play minimally competitive development games

At the end of each session, the kids huddle together for a big ‘Blue Sox high five’ and coaches hand out sweets and MLB baseball cards to keep. Our main focus is on having fun, making friends and being a good team-mate.

What about the parents?

Parents are just as important as the kids – we want you to get involved too and not just watch!

We would like you to play an active role in Little Sox; assisting the coaches (or becoming a coach), encouraging the players, helping tidying up equipment and when we have our special event days, helping running our hot dog stand, fundraising and generally help create a warm and family friendly atmosphere at the ballpark!

Being a super-volunteer help creates an enjoyable and sustainable programme. The more you put into it, the more your child will LOVE Little Sox!

How much does it cost?

Our Little Sox sessions are free, although we do have a voluntary membership scheme of £15 per player (for the season) that helps meets the running costs of the programme.

We also have great deals on official Little Sox T-shirts, hats, hoodies and baseball pants, which are re-sold on a pass-through cost basis.

When and where are your sessions?

Our sessions are weekly on Sunday afternoons as follows:

Tee Ball ages 3-6 (12.30pm-1.15pm)

Coach Pitch ages 7-10 (1.15pm-2.30pm)

If you are uncertain which age group is suitable for your child then please get in touch. We are happy to play kids up or down age groups, when considering size, ability and circle of friends.

Our first session this season will be on Sunday 17 April 2016 and sessions run weekly (except Fathers Day) until mid-July.

We then have a short break at the onset of the school summer holidays before returning mid-August and closing the season in September.

Our T-Ball diamond is located at:

Leicester Blue Sox Baseball Club

Western Park

Park View




What should my child wear?

Comfortable clothing is fine and trainers. If the pitch is on the soggy side, you may want to consider investing in a pair of basic football boots. Be prepared to get muddy!

All other equipment; bats, balls, gloves, helmets/safety equipment is supplied by the club.

How do I register?

Places in each group are limited, so we do recommend that you register your interest.

Please complete the following pre-registration form and we will confirm your child’s place in the coming weeks.
