The Youth Section is the biggest part of our club.
T-ball, for 5 to 7 year olds, is a fun version of baseball and is an excellent introduction to the game. Instead of hitting a pitched ball, the batter hits the ball off a stationary ‘tee’. During the season, T-ball members meet every week for an hour at Charlesland Sports Park 5-6pm.
Coach Pitch is for 7 to 9 year olds and trains once a week. In Coach Pitch, players hit a pitched ball thrown by a coach. They will also learn baseball fundamentals such as catching and throwing. We play occasional friendly games against other clubs with Coach Pitch teams. Coach Pitch players meet every week for 90mins at Charlesland Sports Park 4.30-6pm.
The Little League Team is for 10 to 12 year olds and trains once per week during the season. Games are played within the club and against other clubs from around Ireland at tournaments. Little League players meet every week for 90mins at Charlesland Sports Park 4.30-6pm.
Cadet baseball is for for teens aged 13 to 15 years. Our Cadets train on Thursday evenings 7-9pm at Black Sox Park, Shanganagh, Shankill with our Adult ‘B’ Team. Highlights for this group include games at Corkagh Park and an annual trip in August to play in an international tournament at Alphan-an-Rijn, Netherlands.
We are always open to new players joining our club, so feel free to attend any of our training sessions to try the game out and meet the coaches. Baseball is open to boys and girls from 5 years and upward. Training takes place for our younger groups on Fridays at the following times:
