Program Overview

Fun at Bat is a bat and ball, entry level program for kids. We focus on character development, active play and fun!

The overarching goal of this program is to provide children with a fun and active experience while teaching "USA Baseball's Championship Principles" such as teamwork, honesty, and responsibility. 

League operators around the country are provided safe equipment and educational materials in order to help facilitate a successful program.  We recommend the 8 classes be run over an 8-week season but offer flexibility if you need it. After each 75-minute class, players receive an illustrated take-home book that reinforces the "USA Baseball Championship Principle" learned. A minimum of one team of 12-15 players with 2 coaches per team is recommended. Volunteer parents are welcome to help.
