Youth Baseball and T-Ball

Slide into fun! Youth baseball and kids t-ball are exciting sports combining team play and individual skills. Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques, designed to teach young players the fundamentals of the game. Youth Baseball and kids t-ball players learn through baseball drills how to catch, throw and bat in a fun team atmosphere that will carry over to nurture team building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.

Baseball Benefits

Youth baseball is good for a child’s health. From swinging a bat to throwing a ball to running around the bases, your child will be in motion all the time while learning basic skills and playing a sport that they enjoy. This will get their heart rate going and help them build up their endurance.

Training Benefits

Playing youth baseball is one of the best ways to learn good hand-eye coordination. Whether judging where a fly ball is going to land or keeping a close eye on a pitch that is coming towards the plate, your child will develop and demonstrate good coordination to become a successful baseball player.

Coaching Benefits

Being a coach is a great way to improve your leadership skills. You will manage a team of children, often undisciplined at the start. Shaping them into a team that can win games will take a lot of effort and guidance. Bring out the best in them by understanding their personalities, giving them guidance and helping them grow to be healthier individuals. The impact you have on their lives will not only leave a sense of pride in you, but you will become a part of shaping their futures for the better.

Practices and Games

One 60-minute practice and 1 game per week. Teams available for ages 3-17. Tiny Tots, ages 3-5, is a development program that meets once a week for a combined practice/game. Ask your YMCA for more information!


Our focus is on participation and fun! While basic skills of youth baseball and t-ball are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. Every game begins with a Youth Sports Pledge. We encourage fair play, positive competition and family involvement.

Sports are offered seasonally and vary by location. Please check back or at nearby locations if sport is currently unavailable.

Volunteer Coaching Opportunities

We’re seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide specific resources to the sport you coach. If your child is a player, getting involved at their practices can help them feel comfortable to practice with you outside of official practice time.
