Rookies - Fall 2016
Jun 22 - Sep 11
From Jun 23, 2016 to Sep 12, 2016
The Roslyn Little League Rookie Division is for boys and girls who will turn 4 by 12/1/16 and are in their last year of pre-K. Some exceptions are made for older children in the 3s who have been held back, but birthday is still before the cutoff.
Our goal at this age is to provide a fun, safe, inclusive and learning environment for the children, recognizing that baseball is not an easy sport to excel in generally, and particularly at this age. The nuances of baseball do not translate as easily for younger minds as some other youth sports might. We address this reality by having the children participate in different stations, which are meant to teach and develop critical skills, most of which apply to baseball, but others that apply to athletics in general. The league retains a training organization called Fast Fundamentals, headed up by the director of North Shore Day Camp, Jason Mercado, to work with the children weekly with the goal to have each and every child improve to some degree from the first week of the season to the last week.
The Rookie program will take place from 11am-12pm on Sundays in the Fall (location TBD), beginning on September 11, 2016 and running eight (8) weeks until October 30, 2016. The fee is $225, but if you register before 7/31, you will get the early bird discount of $175. Caps and shirts are included in the registration fee. Trophies will be provided at the end of the season. Team and individual photos are not offered in the Fall season (only Spring), but we encourage parents to take pictures weekly on their phones or cameras and send the best ones to firstname.lastname@example.org.
