Welcome to Piedmont Baseball, Softball and Buddy Ball

Piedmont 6U (age 5 and 6) Info

Piedmont 6U (age 5 and 6) Information:
(Player league age is Player age as of Jan 1)

Recreational Teams:

Schedule/ Goals:

Practices begin in mid-March.  Teams generally practice twice a week (one weekday and weekend) leading up until games.  The practice season will last longer for this age group in order to focus on fundamentals. Hitting, running and fielding stations will be utilized for the girls to stay engaged and get a lot of reps in. Girls will transition slowly to games so that they can learn positions and how the game is played.  Generally we change to one practice a week and one game a week in late April.  This is a “modified” tee-ball league in which girls will hopefully be transitioning from the tee in games to coach pitch by the end of the season.  This league is purely instructional.  Continuous lineup will be used as well as equal time at all positions.  Goals at this level include identifying and running to the proper bases, hitting without a tee, fielding a ground ball and throwing.

Equipment / Uniforms:

Mandatory – Glove (try to get 9.5 inch or larger and not plastic if possible). Cleats or turf shoes. Black softball pants, shorts or leggings.

Recommended- Bat (aluminum alloy only – NO composite) length of 26inch-28inch depending on the size of the girl (this is just a guideline). Helmet (with or without facemask).  We will have helmets and some bats for teams to use.

Balls are 11” incrediballs.

Jersey and socks will be provided (please email the league if your daughter needs an abnormally large jersey).

Field:

Most games are on the mini-field near the outfield of field 2 at Piedmont. A lot of practices and games will be in the grassy area in between the mini-field and Valley road.  Bases are approximately 50 feet.

Teammate and coach requests / playing up or down:

Teams are formed by the commissioner.  We will grant teammate and coach request to the best of our ability. If your daughter is 6 and has outgrown this level she can be considered for 8u (please email the league).
