T-Ball Kids (m/f)

T-Ball is a variant of baseball, in which children from 4 to 8 years of age are introduced to the sport in a playful way. T-Ball got its name from a T-shaped stand from which the balls are hit.

In training, the children learn the basic techniques of baseball: to hit balls from the tee, to throw a ball in a targeted manner, to pick up balls rolling on the ground with a glove and finally to catch thrown or hit balls. We pay attention to the age-specific and personal development of the children, since the motor skills and especially the hand-eye coordination develop strongly in the age range from 4 to 8 years. Maximum attention spans also differ enormously, so that for parts of the training our youngest players often practice very entertaining and very fun exercises in a separate group with coaches. And if, as a four-year-old, after a while you can't or don't want to anymore, then that's perfectly fine. The older T-ball players around the age of 6 to 8 master basic techniques, especially throwing and catching balls with pinpoint accuracy, and can already implement moves, such as the "simple" groundout at first base.

The attacking game in baseball, which consists of knocking the ball away and running over the bases (hit and run), is something that our youngest children learn very quickly, which is certainly due to the great fun factor or because you just look really cool with a helmet and bat. Safety is very important to the Karlsruhe Cougars and all of our T-ball players learn the basic safety rules when using baseball bats.

Baseball is a gentlemanly sport and in addition to many official rules of the game there are a number of unwritten rules. Sporting fairness and respectful behavior towards coaches and fellow players - also and especially towards those of the opposing team - are values ​​that we want to convey.

Games against other teams are organized in the form of tournaments in which one thing is in the foreground: The fun of the children in the movement and being part of a team and the baseball community. The Little Cougars Cup takes place once a year in our ball park, where teams from Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse find their way to Karlsruhe.

If you are looking for a sport for your daughter or son that is varied and not very common, then send us a short message HERE and join our training with your future T-Ball Allstar.
