About Baseball Queensland’s Sporting Schools Program
Baseball Queensland is an affiliate of Baseball Australia (NSO) and as such, can deliver the Sporting Schools Baseball program (Aussie T-Ball or Baseball 5) during your school hours, or as part of your After School Care program and our coaches are flexible enough to deliver programs for various periods 4-12 weeks. Our NCAS Accredited and experienced coaches will engage your students in a range of skills games and activities that introduce students to skills such as two handed striking, throwing, catching and running. Participants will also learn simple rules and strategies of baseball and t-ball.
Consistent with the objectives of the Sporting Schools program, participants will be offered information about their closest baseball club and presented with opportunities to get involved in community sport.
Both programs teach the four fundamental skills of baseball – throwing, catching, running and striking – in a safe, fun, non-contact environment. The modified versions of the game ensure students have greater game involvement that builds social, mental and physical development.
