AGE GROUP: 12 & 13 years old
PARK LOCATION: North London Athletic Fields & Stoneybrook Recreation Fields
FREQUENCY: Teams will typically be on the field 2 nights/week (1 game/ 1 practice). We do our best to keep all games during the week (Mon-Fri). Schedules are determined after registration closes.
DESCRIPTION: 13U (Peewee) coaches will continue to build on previously introduced concepts and improve on fundamental skills to encourage better development of pitchers and hitters. Teams are balanced by skill level and the focus is on fun within a team atmosphere. The length of the bases are 75 feet and the pitching rubber is 50 feet from home plate. The game becomes more similar to regular baseball with less modifications. Baseball Canada has strict rules put in place for pitch counts and the NLBA has rules for fair play that all Coaches are informed of before the year starts.
Players are developing towards:
Pitching - different pitching stances, fielding
Fielding - movement range is expanded, understanding cutoff, basic double play, throwing distance and accurancy is expanded
Hitting/base running - leading off & stealing, sliding safely at all bases, hitting to the outfield and rounding bases
- Baseball glove.
Batting helmets are required.
Athletic supports are required.
Uniform (hat, jersey, pants, socks, belt) is provided.
NLBA provides Catcher's gear.
