In 2019, the Rookies 4/5 program (T-Ball) transitioned into the Rookies Academy to enhance skill development and inject more fun into baseball instruction, replacing stagnant game moments. With a dedicated team of new volunteers, we launched the Rookies Academy, emphasizing a continued focus on gameplay once players master the FUNdamentals.
Upon registration, players are assigned to one-hour weekday learning sessions and an hour and fifteen-minute session on Saturdays, led by trained parent volunteers using a program by Little League International. We provide each player with a hat and shirt and encourage the purchase of plain gray baseball or softball pants, socks, and a belt to foster the player's attire and mindset.
Throughout the program, we capitalize the first three letters of FUNdamentals, signifying our belief in a fun and educational approach to player development.
