5U - Blastball

Age Requirements:

The Blastball Division is designed for children who are born in 2013 or, if born in 2014, will be 4 years old as of April 1, 2018.  The goal for Blastball is to teach your child the FUNdamentals of baseball (hitting, throwing, running, fielding and catching. The emphasis is on fun.

Parents are expected to participate on the field with their child and help the coach with practices. Feel free to sign up for a dedicated volunteer position within this Division (it's a great way to meet other families!) and/or plan to be present and active at your child's practices. 

No play ups will be granted from Blastball to T-Ball. 

Schedule:

The Blastball schedule is practice one time per week - on Saturdays, 9:00-9:45am.  The season is scheduled to begin mid-April and run through mid-June. Blastball teams will be at Carnarvon Park. Be note: The schedule and field location may be subject to change. 

Gear Requirements:

Your child will receive a team t-shirt and Carnarvon Ball Club hat on the first day of the season. This is their uniform, so please ensure that they wear it each time they come. They will also need a batting helmet, glove, and athletic support. Please ensure that you mark your child's name in everything. A white label or masking tape works well on the outside of the batting helmet and handwritten on labels in shirts, glove and hats.

Coaches & Team Selection:

This league is run entirely by volunteers.  Thank you to those of you that volunteer to coach this season! This is were the base of our coaching staff is formed...it only gets better from here. We'll train coaches and prepare them for many years of solid coaching so that you can have quality time on field with your children. Teams will be assembled once registration is closed at the beginning of March, so if you have anyone else that you would like to recruit, please get them to do so as soon as possible.  Teams will be selected so that they have a mix of ages and genders. We will also endeavour to meet at least one friend or coach request, but no guarantees can be made.

Field Prep:

Near the start of the season we will have our annual pre-season field preparation day. The more hands available to help, the more efficiently the work will get done. Your brawn and tools will be greatly appreciated to wack the weeds. It is a great kick-off to the season and a demonstration of the community at work.
