Little Sluggers 2014



 

The Holland Township Recreation Little Sluggers program is slated to begin this coming Monday, July 21st. We are very excited to have the children that signed up participate in this program with us this summer. Little Sluggers is an introductory program to get kids familiar with the skills and techniques it takes to play t-ball, softball, and even baseball. We will be focusing on skills sets such as running bases, defense position, fielding, throwing, catching, and hitting. We will focus on the skills that it takes to play the game of t-ball in a station format the first three weeks of the class, with building on the skills more every week. On August 11th, the last class we will split the kids up and play a couple real games of t-ball. Parents are encouraged to help during the game as well.

Please note that this program is a parent interactive program; a parent or adult is expected to participate with their child.  Please be sure that kids wear gym/sports class attire and shoes, bring a water bottle and glove to each class.
