Teeball Program

T Ball report 9/5/2015

12 May 2015

TBALL has now had three sessions and is shaping as our best year yet. Numbers are nearing 20 each week and there is the prospect of a few more in the coming weeks. The pleasing aspect is not only the returning players but the new ones – some children of current players some who have responded to notices of the program.

Last Saturday we had 17 players (with 3 apologies due to illness) and nine – yes 9! – coaches with senior experience (Steve Williams, Chris Williams, Adrian Rice, David Hair, Dylan Archer, James Holley, Geoff Williams, Ben Utting and Peter Williams). Talk about player to coach ratio!!!!

The sessions are broken into about 30 or 40 minutes of drills where the correct basics of throwing, catching, fielding, batting and base running are taught and then about 40 of 50 minutes of playing. With numbers so high we can run 2 games so each player gets a greater involvement.
Thus far the skill levels are looking quite impressive – especially for a group which is decidedly younger than last year’s. What is even more impressive is the look of this group in their KNOX tops and caps! And of course the after game treats from CANTEEN NANNA SUE are going down as well as ever.
