Quick Ball 2018

Our Quick Ball program is an entry-level league to introduce boys and girls age 4-5 to the concepts of the game.  Players will develop their skills while focusing on the basic fundamentals of throwing, fielding and hitting.  Teams sizes are small at about 8-10 players per team. Games are typically played once per week with an additional practice.  Each player will receive an official Quick Ball bat and ball to keep at home.




QUICKBALL

DIFFERENCES FROM TEE BALL:

  • Player activity is widespread and constant
  • Games move fast and involve up to 50 balls
  • Baserunning rules are progressive. Each batter runs out a single, double, triple and home run in each game.
  • Fielding goals are simple, direct and age appropriate. Fielders learn the value of getting outs.
  • Players receive tangible rewards for their efforts in all phases of the game, including running, throwing, catching and hitting.
  • Teamwork is emphasized at all times, rewarding teams in the field and at bat.
  • Players score points in one of three ways —with a base hit, by completing a baserunning assignment or by fielding a ball and throwing it to the proper base 
  • Anyone can score, regardless of skill level. 
  • Guaranteed action at each base during every game. 
  • Rules dictate that players rotate fielding positions. Every player is in the pitcher’s circle and involved in a relay at least once during each game.

TEE BALL

DIFFERENCES FROM QUICKBALL:

  • Player activity is sporadic and limited Games move slow and involve only one ball. 
  • Baserunning rules are non-progressive. Runners advance only one base at a time whether they are safe or out.
  • Fielding goals are often confusing. When runners are on two or more bases, fielders tend to get confused on what to do with the ball once they catch it. 
  • Players receive no tangible rewards for their efforts in the field or at bat.
  • Teamwork is emphasized only while on defense. 
  • There is no player scoring. 
  • Guaranteed action at first base only. 
  • No guarantee of player rotation.
