Picking up where our Rookie Ball program leaves off, our Under 8 Atom division focuses on skill development and fun over rigid competition and score keeping. 

U8 features a 5-pitch game that allows players to develop their hitting and pitching without having to learn the intricacies of strikes and balls.  Skill development at this age is all about simplicity and repetition, so you’ll find our coaches quite often reminding players to “keep your eye on the ball,” to “play to first” and to “use the safety bag.” 

We welcome players of all skill levels, as teaching the sport is our mandate, so even if your child hasn’t ever picked up a bat, we’ll have them ‘swinging for the fences’ by the end of the season!
