Baseball Australia is thrilled to offer its two Sporting Schools programs to children across Australia’s school yards. The Baseball products on offer include the Aussie T- Ball school program and the Little League program.
Both programs are nationally recognised by Baseball Australia affiliated state associations, the Australian Sports Commission and Major League Baseball, as baseball's junior entry point program to introduce children to the game of baseball.
Baseball Australia is pleased to partner with the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) to deliver this $160 million Australian Government initiative to get more children playing more sport. Baseball Australia is the governing body for all levels of baseball throughout the country working with seven state and territory associations and over 600 clubs across the country.
As the national sporting organisation (NSO) for baseball, we offer schools and coaches quality programs that encourage children to participate in this great sport.
The Baseball Australia Product
Aussie T-Ball is a modified version of baseball designed to introduce boys and girls of all abilities to the game and help them develop basic baseball skills in a fun, safe, non-contact environment. Aussie T-Ball can help kids to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity, baseball, to each other and to themselves.
The Little League program is the next step in the baseball pathway and just like Aussie T-Ball, it can be modified to suit the school environment. Little League develops life skills through sport and provides a wholesome, healthy activity for children using the ball field as the classroom to install discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.
Teachers and coaches are our assets
Baseball Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.
Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.
The information below is a guide to how teachers, coaches and sporting organisations can deliver the Baseball Australia program within Sporting Schools.
