Youth baseball, softball and tee-ball at the Y are designed to teach young ball players the fundamentals of the game. Participants will learn how to catch, throw, and bat in a fun team atmosphere. Youth baseball, softball and tee-ball provide every child a chance to participate in practices and games. Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques.
The Y utilizes volunteer coaches to focus on participation and fun! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. Every game begins with a Youth Sports Pledge and ends with a handshake.
Families are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches—as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.
The Atlanta Braves Foundation is a proud supporter of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta youth baseball and softball programs.
Make sure to ask your branch about upcoming clinics and camps.
