Division Information - Coach Pitch

Coach Pitch (Ages 6-8*)

At the Coach Pitch level, the Manager or Coach serves as the pitcher for all innings. A safety ball will be used for Coach Pitch since this will be the first-time children will be pitched to versus hitting off of a tee. When necessary, the coach may determine that a player should hit off of a tee to finish their at bat.

This division is primarily for 6, 7 and 8 year olds who have successfully demonstrated all of the Tee Ball skills. As with Tee Ball the primary objective at this level is to ensure that each player has a "positive experience" with baseball, and desires to play again the following year.

* Little League International uses a system to calculate a player’s league age to determine eligibility to play each Division level.  To calculate your child’s “league age”, click on this link and enter your child’s birthday.

 

SEASON

Practices typically start 1-2 weeks prior to the first game. Regular season typically starts in early April and runs through mid-June (for Spring Baseball) and early September through the end of October (for Fall Baseball).

 

GAMES

Each team plays a minimum of 8 games per season, depending on the number of teams. Coach Pitch games are played on Saturdays and will be scheduled at times ranging from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM.  Game length is typically 1 hour (all games include 3 full innings).

Practices occur 1 weeknight per week during the season. Practice schedules vary from team to team based on the requirements of the manager.  Practices typically last 1 hour.

 

UNIFORMS

GFLL provides a T-shirt jersey, socks and cap. Parents must provide pants and rubber baseball cleats. (Note: No socks are provided in the Fall season).

 

PLAYING EQUIPMENT

Parents must provide a baseball glove, batting helmet and bat.  In Coach Pitch, all players must have a face cage attached to their batting helmet.


TEAM

Teams usually consist of 7-10 players, a volunteer manager and one to two volunteer coaches. Parents are encouraged to help out during practices.

Teams are formed by the Player Agent with consideration taken for coach and friend requests; however, we do not guarantee that all requests can be accommodated.

VOLUNTEER WORK/FUNDRAISING

GFLL is an all-volunteer organization. We need everyone’s help! We encourage parents to sign up to assist with Opening Day ceremonies, Picture Day, Closing Day and more.  As your player advances to higher divisions, there is a requirement to volunteer your time in the Snack Shack located between Nike 1 and Nike 2.  We do not require our Tee Ball and Coach Pitch families to volunteer.  However, you are always welcome.  There is a sign-up link during the season on the GFLL website for working in the Snack Shack.  Also, please remember that we love to see our Coach Pitch players visit us at the Snack Shack to get a drink or snack following their games.  Come by any time!
