The Tee Ball program is for boys and girls league ages 4-5 years old (with a local option for league age 6- and/or 7-year-olds) who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Tee Ball players hit a ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of the game and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. There is no minimum or maximum composition for Tee Ball rosters, but some leagues have found more success with smaller roster sizes to help keep all players engaged. No live pitching is permitted in this division. Generally, the diamond used is a 60-foot diamond, but the league has the option to use a 50-foot diamond.
Why should your local league create a Tee Ball Division and use the Little League Tee Ball Curriculum?
