Glebe Little League TEE Ball Program
Tee Ball is the introductory baseball level for 4 to 6 year old boys and girls.
Often a family’s first introduction to Little League®, providing a Tee Ball experience that is grounded in fun, fitness, and fundamentals is key to growing a child’s love for the game. To aid leagues in providing a positive introduction to baseball, Little League developed a 10-week curriculum that has been shown to improve the experience for baseball players, parents, and coaches. All chartered baseball teams are provided with a free printed copy of the curriculum, which is also available free of charge on LittleLeagueU.org. Baseball leagues, coaches, and parents are encouraged to use this Curriculum in conjunction with the resources below to provide a fulfilling Little League experience
