Sand Lot: Little League

BASEBALL/SOFTBALL.

is a program designed to provide a fun and exciting environment for kids to play indoor baseball and softball. It is a structured program for players between 6 and 13 years old. The games will take place on our 17,500 sq ft field and will be officiated by Academy staff but coached by the players. The kids will organize themselves and rotate positions every inning as Academy staff supervises and umpires the games.

Each team can have a minimum of 7 players and maximum of 9 on their roster. Rosters can be filled with your friends or individuals and small groups will be partnered with others to create a team.

THE TEAMS:

9 & 10 year olds                         14u

11 to 13 year olds                       16u

THE GAMES:

The games themselves will be timed (1 hour) not played in a 6 inning format. This will keep the pace of play fast and each inning exciting. A conventional 3 out format will be followed as well as “Sand Lot” rules introduced. The Academy staff member will throw each pitch using a special indoor ball designed for safety during the BASEBALL games and a pitching machine will be used for the SOFTBALL games. There will be no walking in order to help create an “offensive” environment! All players present will play a defensive position with the catcher standing off to the side away from the hitter for safety. The games being played by the 6 & 7 year old division will have 2 Academy staff members assigned to each game. They will take an extremely active role as coaches to ensure all the players have a fun and exciting experience each week. The Competitive DIVISION teams will keep records, have playoffs and a Championship Game. Adult coaches will be optional.

Testimonials

Our son has had the good fortune to have Nick Davey as
his pitching coach here at All Stars Academy. Although only with Nick a short
time, our son’s improvement has been tremendous. The pitching lessons are not
“cookie cutter” lessons – each week the lesson is distinctive, with
special emphasis on our son’s need as a pitcher. During the lesson there is a
discussion about mechanics, game strategies and the mental aspects of the game.
Nick doesn’t just talk at our son-he involves our son in discussion,
encouraging him to capitalize on his strengths, analyze his weaknesses, and to
strive to better himself each and every week. There has even been occasion for
throwing to “live batters” which uniquely couples working on
mechanics as well as game tactics. We are truly happy with our experience with
Nick Davey and All Stars Academy.
