Strike Zone/Lil-Sluggers


Instructional Coach Pitch T-Ball League


The Strike Zone Baseball and Softball Academy and Lil-Sluggers have teamed up with the Kenilworth Park District to offer an exciting 8 week instructional coach-pitch league for 4-5yr and 6-7 years old. Each week players will, learn a new aspect of the game at practices and run a drill to reinforce basic fundamentals. A real 3-4 innings, coach pitch game is held using t-balls with regular baseball rules and equipment. There are no more than 7 players on a team. Players will be allowed6 swings or 8 pitches. If they don’t hit the ball, they will hit off the tee.

Coaches will be on the field to direct play and instruct players where to throw the ball and how to run the bases. One coach will pitch and umpire and another coach will play first base. The pace of these games is faster than a regular little game to ensure fun and excitement.

Our goal is to develop good sportsmanship, teamwork and a sense of real competition before moving on to the next level. Scores will be kept each week. Each participant will receive a t-shirt, hat and two batting cage coupons.
